Why study Business Administration?
In the Canadian University Report (The Globe and Mail, 2010), the University of the Fraser Valley was ranked as the top public university in B.C. – of any size – for overall quality of education, quality of teaching, most satisfied students, best student-faculty interaction, and best career preparation.
Whatever career path you choose, it will likely involve some aspects of business. Consider any profession from artist to doctor, lawyer to pilot, welder to police officer: they all need to understand how business works. The study of business involves both theory and practice. Successful businesspeople must be able to analyze a situation, examine various alternatives, and combine parts of solutions to solve the particular problem being faced.
The four-year Bachelor of Business Administration degree program at UFV provides advanced study in the theories and principles of modern business and sharpens essential business skills. As a graduate, you will be well-equipped to function in and adapt to the rapidly changing business environment. You will gain a general background in business, and the chance to concentrate in accounting/financial management, marketing, human resource and organizational studies, or operations management.
