The Bachelor of Business Administration offered at VIU is a comprehensive program that provides students with a well-rounded business education with a focus on global business operations and emerging markets. A variety of majors and elective options are offered that allow students to tailor their education to their career goals and provide them with an understanding of the linkages between Social Sciences, Humanities and Business.

Business plays a major role in the structure and functioning of contemporary society. Rapid changes in technology, resource allocation, structural shifts in the economy, changes in consumer preferences, global competition, and shifts in the employment market all necessitate a better understanding of the role and nature of business in today’s society.

The BBA provides a well-rounded business education with a focus on global business operations, emerging markets, and technology-enabled organizations. Students develop an in-depth understanding of one of the business majors and learn a broad range of managerial capabilities, problem solving and communication skills. Electives allow flexibility, adaptability and creativity and prepare graduates for diverse careers in global management, administration, and entrepreneurship, as well as a range of postgraduate opportunities.
