ABOUT THIS DEGREE
Blending good corporate citizenship with ethical business practice is the challenge facing businesses today. Corporate social responsibility and social entrepreneurship are not treated as just the latest buzzwords, but these business concepts provide a foundation for students to harness their power to manage successful economic, social and environmental relationships. A student will practice and engage with various viewpoints of stakeholders to better understand how these relationships are likely to have a powerful impact on an organization’s long-term success and sustainability.
Life University’s Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) students begin their academic journey by mastering a foundation in the overarching concepts of business, principles of management and leadership. As the student progresses through the BBA degree program, they will engage in courses in the area of accounting, economics, marketing, finance, business law, human resource management, organizational behavior, ethics, social change/non-profit, diversity, social media marketing and sports management – all with a focus on socially responsible business philosophy. BBA students can complete their program by selecting an area of interest in which they may enroll in additional business-related coursework, or they have the potential for a business internship with a vetting process of an established business.
At Life University, Bachelor of Business Administration majors will learn to explore and apply principles of marketing, accounting, entrepreneurship, human resources and information technology to become modern-day influencers, while learning to master today’s business survival skills – multi-directional communication, and build critical thinking skills in leadership, entrepreneurship and collaborative team building.
