Averett University’s 45-credit on campus Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree program gives you critical knowledge in marketing, accounting, management and more. Students also need an understanding of how businesses operate in the global economy.
Goals and Course Topics
As a BBA graduate, you’ll have a solid base of theoretical knowledge in business and management, and practical skills in primary business administration functions. You will also develop strong professional communication and critical thinking skills.
The on campus BBA program emphasizes practical application of theories presented in course materials. Topics include:

- Human resource management
- Legal, regulatory and ethical issues
- Management theory
- Quantitative analysis and statistics
The program includes an independent study project where you apply learned theories and concepts to a real-world business problem found through research or at your place of employment.
On Campus BBA Format
The BBA program is formatted for accelerated completion. You’ll take courses sequentially to focus on each subject and build concepts over time. Small classes allow for productive discussions and personal attention from your instructors, who have industry backgrounds. You are expected to commit to 45 contact hours per academic credit, whether you attend class online or on campus on weekday evenings.
