The Bachelor in Business Administration or BBA is a foundation level program for a management education. In this course, the basics in Business Administration are taught.
Under this course, the students can specialize in one of the multiple streams of international business, finance, real estate, computer information systems, marketing or accounting and depending on the specialization can land a job.
