The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) provides a solid business education that responds to the demand of prospective employers for specific quantitative and technological competencies. Data analysis and modeling play a central role in our integrated curriculum. Teamwork and group projects are also critical ingredients that help ensure that our graduates are proficient in key areas such as global and local economic trends, digital business platforms, business strategies, globalization, and environmental change.
The Business School offers three majors in the BBA: Finance, International Business, and Actuarial Studies. Within the finance major, there are two concentrations: corporate finance and fintech.
