The Bachelor of Business Administration is one of the most versatile of all degree programs, with graduates launching careers across many sectors of today's business environment. From financial analysis and marketing to entrepreneurial innovation and the management of small, medium and family enterprises, today's business graduates face greater risks and opportunities. More than 75% of all jobs request or require the BBA, and with only one-third of jobs open to graduates with 0-2 years-experience, the internship requirement in the School of Business Administration helps graduates make that first step.
