How Do I Get Accepted into a Bachelor's Degree Program in Business Administration?

The minimum requirement for acceptance into a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program is a high school diploma or its equivalent. You may also need to submit standardized test scores, letters of recommendation and high school transcripts. Additionally, some schools may not allow you to matriculate as a business major; instead, before declaring a business major, you may have to complete educational requirements by the end of your freshman year. You may need to complete classes in calculus, accounting and economics. A strong GPA and leadership experience could increase your chances of admission.

What Can I Learn?

A bachelor's degree in business administration combines general education classes with finance, management and economics training. You could also choose an area of emphasis, such as supply chain management, accounting, marketing, international business, management information systems or leadership. The following are examples of courses you could take:

  • Organizational behavior
  • Strategic management
  • Issues in leadership
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Negotiation techniques
  • General and operations management

What Are My Online Options?

You can earn a bachelor's degree in business administration entirely online. Online programs might use educational software to administer classes, which could include Web-based discussion forums, electronic assignments and grading, e-mail or video conferencing. These programs are commonly taught by experienced faculty and have the same requirements as their on-campus counterparts. The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) is an organization that accredits both online and on-campus programs.

Where Can I Work?

If you graduate from a bachelor's degree program in business administration, you could apply for entry-level management positions. Possible employers include government agencies, hotels and restaurants, management and consulting firms, retail chains or banks.
