Executive Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)

The Executive Bachelor of Business Administration is a broad-based program primarily designed to offer a versatile education in business and management within a stipulated time frame of one year (6 Modules). Our focus is on the most pressing issues facing business and industry. In order to show the dynamic nature of the marketplace we will address the current international and regulatory forces affecting executive decisions. Often, our program participants become a source of vital information for the faculty and fellow students.

Classes are structured to combine theory with application, thus allowing executives the opportunity to learn from each other as well as from our own distinguished faculty. In general, small class sizes for the management programs are maintained to ensure that each participant receives individual attention.

It is our firm determination to maintain a leading role in the education of business professionals by offering them general management education opportunities throughout the various stages of their careers. We strive to maintain high Christian standards that will enable us to earn leadership status in executive education because of our outstanding faculty, innovative programs, and focus on Christian perspectives.

Students also have the option to complete their Executive Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a choice between three different emphasis areas within a stipulated time frame of just over one year (7 modules/14 months). Emphasis areas include business management, logistics management, and health administration. This BBA degree with Emphasis is offered in a similar format to the non-emphasis degree, with both fully online and blended learning. All students in the degree program will complete the same courses in Modules 1 through Module 5. The courses in Modules 6 and 7 will vary according to each student’s selected emphasis area.

One of our longtime goals has been the development of a complete and exclusive learning environment for our program participants. The Executive BBA program is designed to bridge the gap between traditional academic programs and Executive education. We invite you to study the catalog in detail and to consider the many benefits of this Executive BBA program.
