About this programme

Today’s business world requires graduates with an understanding of all aspects of business, who are able to think critically and act decisively.
Designed in collaboration with the University’s Business Key Advisory Group, high-profile academics and industry experts, this programme prepares you for business challenges by providing you with high level skills across key aspects of business as well as deeper knowledge in an area of chosen specialisation.
The programme also offers invaluable experience of working within industry through annual placements. Students can also choose one major from the following: Management, Finance, Digital Innovation, Accounting, Marketing, Tourism.
There are few fields of study that open up as many career opportunities. All organisations, public and private, need individuals with business administration skills.
The Bachelor of Business Administration (Hons) is a full-time, three-year programme on offer at the University of Gibraltar’s School of Business.

What is a BBA (Hons)?

BBA is strongly associated with business. It is practically orientated, providing a grounding in all key aspects of business (e.g., accounting, marketing, management, organisational skills), with a view to developing a business professional rather than knowledge in one particular discipline.
