Pursuing a bachelor’s degree is a bold and life-changing decision. However, it is not just a matter of acquiring a qualification; you need to select a qualification that is fit for purpose, aligned to your desired future career, as different qualifications pave way for different career paths and develop different skills sets.

And in the current tight global labour market, if you want a competitive advantage, it is essential to ensure that the skills you will be pouring your heart into developing are relevant and future-proof (World Economic Forum, 2023).

To help you make the right choice, let’s compare two important undergraduate business management degrees, namely the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)and the Bachelor of  Science in Business Administration (BSBA).

What is a Bachelor of Business Administration?

The Bachelor of Business Administration, among the most popular business degrees, provides graduates with knowledge and skills in general management, enabling its graduates to realise their potential and progress as managers in any sector. It develops a set of core management competencies and knowledge that can be applied in various management functions so that graduates can serve in a general management capacity. Students are also expected to take elective subjects that allow them to specialise in areas of interest.

What is a Bachelor of  Science in Business Administration?

A Bachelor of  Science in Business Administration is also a specialised business administration qualification, but explores fewer topics at a deeper level  (Knezevic, 2022) than the BBA. The BSBA develops graduates with an analytical skillset that can be applied in different disciplines and industries (Johnson, 2018).

The difference between a BBA and a BSBA and the careers they lead to

Both degrees are undergraduate qualifications underpinned by theoretical frameworks and models, and equip graduates with business acumen to navigate in any business.
