Course details

Course structure & details

The BBA is a self-paced, fully online learning program. There are no classes to attend, only independent learning. However, your courses will be led by instructors, and you will need to meet assignment deadlines.

You'll also have easy access to interactions with your fellow students and instructors, all through the online campus.

As a BBA student, you’ll develop your business and leadership skills through a curriculum that combines theoretical and applied learning. Graduate with a well-rounded managerial profile, that will help you succeed in today’s fast-paced business environment.

The first two years of the program consist of foundational core courses, supplemented by general education electives, spanning eight weeks each. During this stage, you’ll cover business, financial, and economic concepts and theories.

Following the successful completion of the foundational courses, you’ll begin your specialty stream – International Business – where you’ll focus on the unique aspects of international management.

Your BBA studies end with a capstone project, where you’ll have the opportunity to apply what you’ve learned to a real business case.
