Unsure what you should study abroad? Maybe you should consider a BBA. A Bachelor in Business Administration or BBA is a degree that includes both general business courses and advanced classes in specific areas of concentration. A BBA degree is normally designed to give students a general understanding of all the function areas of a business and how they are all interconnected. In a BBA, students learn the foundations of accounting, finance, economics, marketing, IT, operations, human resources and other mayor areas of business before specializing on a concrete area.
These are four reasons why you should study abroad at IE University and take a Bachelor in Business Administration (BBA).
1. IE Business School’s rankings and recognition
IE Business School is a premier study abroad destination; it is considered one of Europe’s best higher education institutions by international media like the Financial Times, The Economist, Wall Street Journal and América Economía. Also, IE Business School is accredited by AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS. This “Triple Crown Accreditation” has only been granted to very few institutions worldwide. Being accredited by these organizations certifies that IE Business School’s education model is one of the best in the world. Besides, IE Business School’s symbiosis with the business environment, companies and institutions guarantees that the graduate profile we shape in our students is suitable for the current and future challenges of the professional world.
2. IE University’s Teaching Methodology
If you want to study abroad for a change in scenery, you’re in luck: IE University’s teaching methodology is truly unique and innovative. At IEU students connect theory with practice across all areas of the BBA program. Following the world renowned IE Business School´s teaching approach, students learn from hands-on projects, real life cases and true exposure to the business world. At IEU students also have access to other resources that help them build a successful profile.
The BBA provides students the resources and the environment they need to transform themselves through the achievement of a series of measurable objectives by completing IEU labs, consultancy projects, choosing electives and specializing in an area of concentration. We expose students to business and management from the very beginning. Through working in cases and projects you will understand how companies work from all angles. This methodology will increase its complexity and depth as you progress in the learning objectives set throughout the four years.
3. Drive change
We live in a world that is constantly changing and faster than ever before. In this new world change is necessary to achieve success. Jobs are no longer confined to the same four walls. New technologies and innovations are redefining the way the world does business. When everything around you is changing you can do one of two things: go with the tide or take control and become the driver of this change. But you will never achieve great things by going with the tide. Undergraduate business education should not be more teaching tools, adding skills and providing all sort of experiences. Society requires a BBA profile capable of driving change, and therefore a new educational dynamic is needed. At IE University our focus is to help you become the kind of professional who leads the future and can change the world
As one of our students said: “entrepreneurship is a way of being, every time you face a problem you have to use your imagination to find new answers”. At IE University we harness new ways of thinking and foster an innovative environment in which students can unleash their creativity and venture into the unexplored. Entrepreneurship is at the core of IEU, throughout the BBA program students have access to all the resources they need to conceptualize, test and launch their startup and business ideas. We believe that entrepreneurship is crucial for both the development of societies and companies. We conceive entrepreneurship as force that drives change either in new ventures and projects or in existing ones. More than a tool to launch a business, at IEU entrepreneurship is a set of skills, behavior and attitudes that push students to design and implement innovative solutions to existing problems.
