Bachelor of Business Administration General

Southern Alberta Institute of Technology

Southern Alberta Institute of Technology
The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) is an industry-recognized bachelor's degree. This laptop-based program gives career-focused students the opportunity to learn from qualified instructors with real-world business experience in a practical and technologically-rich learning environment. SAIT's BBA offers a unique advantage: a high level of coursework dedicated specifically to business studies and each major, giving in-depth knowledge to prepare students for the job market. Complementary courses in interdisciplinary fields give students the academic breadth and research skills needed to prepare for future graduate studies. This program was designed with extensive input from industry advisors to meet the needs of Alberta businesses and employers and to prepare graduates to excel in their field. Students will complete a common first year and then specialize in one of the following majors: Accounting, Financial Services, Human Resource Management, Marketing, and Supply Chain Management. Core business courses ensure each student gains essential business knowledge and include topics such as accounting, economics, marketing, productivity tools and technology, international business and strategic management. Students will also develop professional skills and gain academic breadth through courses in communications, critical thinking, statistics, research, and ethics. Complementary elective courses include a range of relevant real-world topics in humanities, science, and social sciences. At the end of the program, students complete a practical capstone course, which will integrate all previous areas of coursework and challenge students' analytic and critical thinking skills in a real-world business situation. Upon graduation, students will be qualified for excellent career prospects in their field of study and will be eligible to continue their studies at the graduate level or pursue an industry designation (varies by major and career field).
