BACHELOR OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATIONThe Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree program at Carlos Albizu University is designed to prepare graduates with the necessary skills and academic knowledge to effectively apply various business principles and tools in an organizational setting. The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree program is offered with a major in Organizational Management.
The lower division portion of the BBA provides students with a balanced academic foundation that includes coursework in areas such as accounting, English composition, cross-cultural studies, humanities and sciences. The upper division portion of the BBA degree program exposes students to applied knowledge and best practices in the areas of management, marketing, communications, accounting, finance, and managerial decision making. The BBA’s upper division core courses are offered via a non-traditional “Fast-track” course delivery format and may be completed within five academic sessions, or approximately 20 months.
KEY ADVANTAGES / BENEFITS
The BBA’s upper division core courses are offered via a non-traditional “Fast-track” delivery format. Fast-track BBA students complete one cluster of three courses per academic session, attending once a week, one course at a time. The format is uniquely designed so that students can attend evening or weekend classes once a week, completing one intensive course at a time. This, in turn, permits students to receive intensive training in one subject area, before moving on to the next.
CONVENIENT SCHEDULES Our classes are regularly offered in the evenings, on weekends and online. This convenient schedule allows our students to earn their Business degree from a regionally accredited university without overlooking the demands of their careers and their busy family life.
SMALL CLASS SIZES
Our small classes are among our greatest advantages. By maintaining an average class size of under 15 students, our students benefit from a more supportive learning environment, where interaction between faculty and students is a key component of academic success.
CREDIT FOR PRIOR LEARNING AND WORK EXPERIENCE
Admitted students with prior work experience may obtain up to 30 college-level credits by following a rigorous evaluation process, which includes the registration in a specialized 3-credit course, the submission of a “Credit for Prior Learning” portfolio and evaluation by members of the faculty. Prior learning credits may not be used to satisfy Upper division core requirements.
Our curricula emphasize learning the links between education, training and employability skills. Case discussions, lecture series and teamwork provide our students with the practical skills they need for today’s work environment, while theoretical knowledge empowers them to lead their organizations within today’s multicultural context.
REAL WORLD KNOWLEDGE
Our faculty is largely composed of corporate executives who are active in their fields of expertise, while our Business Advisory Board (BAB) is composed of outstanding community and industry leaders. This level of exposure supplies our students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to manage a business in today’s competitive environment.
