About the BBA

A Bachelor of Business Administration degree, or BBA degree, offers a broad understanding of how the elements of business organizations relate to one another and to the marketplace. Unlike other business degrees, the BBA also provides the opportunity to study one subject concentration.

The BBA program at the HEBSBA offers 10 concentration subjects, which include accounting, economics, finance, general business, international business, management, marketing, management information systems, professional golf management and sport management.

In addition to providing the technical skills necessary for a professional-level position, the ethical considerations of business are also emphasized. Rooted in the Mission of the University, the BBA prepares students to be principled leaders. 

Capstone group student presentation

Undergraduate students in the BBA degree program take two Capstone courses in their final two semesters. The Capstone courses challenge students to apply the foundations of business and their concentration expertise to an operative business or organization.

Working in teams, students create business strategies, develop solutions and conceive of pathways to greater success. By doing so, they gain experience with the professional world and gain first-hand insights from business leaders. Their work can also serve as a portfolio piece when they enter the workforce.
