If you plans are to study in the field of commercial or business operations, you may want to consider aiming for a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree. Often the degree is abbreviated to B.B.A. or BBA; it is typically a four year long course where a student may study in the fields of business or commercial areas but there are areas of this course that touch on specific parts of a business.
You could study for the more lucrative degree known as the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA or B.S.B.A.), which would generally demand a different set of educational requirements should you wish to take up on this degree. Although the degree would normally take four years, it may be made shorter by the student taking CLEP business exams.
CLEP Business courses are programs that come in five stages and include financial accounting, principles of management, principles of marketing, an introduction to the business law and I.T., Information Systems and Computer Software Applications. A Bachelor of Business Administration Degree may be spread over a much longer period for those wishing to study the course on a part time basis. The course of action may take between six and seven years to complete. Incidentally, those preferring to take the CLEP business option may prepare by taking free online business courses (*) to ready for the program.
The educational requirements for a student studying for a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree may be varied but may essentially focus on management accounting, entrepreneurships, detailed areas of business management and general education courses such as those in mathematics, the sciences and English**.
The job outlook upon completion of the degree is very rewarding. There are almost unlimited career options for a student who has graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree. Once you have your certificate you may be ready to work in a business administration environment, which may include enhancing a company's performance, education, management and all business administrative functions**.
Several graduates go on to work in specific fields such as accounting, I.T, Human Resources or Quality Control. All departments within the workplace need a sound administrative structure that a degree holder could subsequently provide.
The general advice is to focus on one specific area that you feel you may excel in and then pursue employment within an organization or company in that specific field.
