What does it take to start a successful new business, to lead an organisation, to plan and manage a complex project? How do leaders negotiate, resolve conflict, and manage across cultures in the global workplace?
The BBA will answer these questions and, more importantly, help you develop skills to go out and do these things in the real world.
The BBA is flexible so you can build on your strengths. For example, you have a wide choice about how much mathematical content to include in your degree.
It's a great program for a flexible double combination with almost any other bachelor degree at ANU.
