Put your plans for a career in business into action with the valuable knowledge and skills gained from Vancouver Island University’s Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program. Through innovative instruction and real-world research projects, students are challenged to think creatively and adapt easily to an ever-changing global environment to give them the tools necessary to become leaders in their field.

A Bachelor degree in business offers diverse career opportunities in global management, administration, and entrepreneurship. With small class sizes, available instructors, and meaningful real-world projects, graduates leave this business degree program with high-level skills and foresight giving them that competitive advantage as they climb the corporate ladder or pursue their own business goals.

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.
