BS in Business Administration

BS in Business Administration

The Bachelor Science in Business Administration (BSBA) at AURAK aims to provide a broad background of study for students who wish to pursue a career in one of many business sectors – retail, hospitality, information technology, manufacturing, or non-profit organizations. Unlike the general BBA degree, our BSBA program provides students with tools and knowledge valuable to any business and with practice in developing skills such as teamwork, analysis of numerical data, and communicating in writing and orally. BSBA majors may choose to specialize in accounting, finance, human resource management, marketing, business analytics or hospitality and tourism management by taking seven major required courses and three major electives in one of these areas or choose to be a generalist, by taking a combination of courses from all the six major specialist areas.
