Academic and Professional Skills Developed
The BBA degree provides students with concepts and skills useful for administration, management, decision-making, and future leadership in public, private, for profit, or not-for-profit organizations. The curriculum covers functional areas in business including administration, accounting, finance, human resource management, business operations, and marketing as well as the ethical, legal, and global economic context in which administrators and managers must make decisions. The curriculum is also designed to develop mathematical and computer skills needed by administrators and managers in modern organizations.

While the BBA majors develop specific skills in accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing, the liberal arts background provides broad academic experience in the humanities, sciences, arts, and social sciences that teach students to think critically, analyze problems, reach creative solutions, and communicate clearly. Teaching methods include analytical problem-solving and business-related case studies.

The social and leadership opportunities provided through extracurricular activities at AUK encourage students to develop the ability to deal effectively with people, to learn and practice organizational and management skills, and to develop their potential for leadership in their careers and their communities.

An excellent way to prepare for a career is to supplement academic education with on-the-job experience. The BBA degree program at AUK is designed with that purpose in mind. Students are required to participate in an internship in which they learn to apply their academic knowledge. Internships give students practical business experience, more confidence in job interviewing, and career prospects.

The skills gained through the BBA program are transferable to many career fields, but they are particularly appropriate for students who wish to start their careers in business administration. The BBA program’s unique combination of professional and liberal arts education provides students with the flexibility, adaptability, and creativity necessary for personal growth, job satisfaction, and life-long learning. These characteristics provide a sound foundation for students to enter respected and rewarding professions or to seek local, regional, and international graduate programs and, as a consequence, achieve success in our rapidly changing global society.
