Since 1964, British Columbia Institute of Technology has produced diploma graduates that employers ask for by name. The BBA program builds directly on the variety of diploma programs offered in the School of Business. By starting with the diploma program of your choice, you will begin learning the skills necessary for your chosen field right from the first day of classes. At the end of your second year, you will have a diploma that is highly valued by industry. The BBA program then gives you the flexibility to complete your degree full-time within 8 to 12 months (depending on previous transfer credits from other institutes), or you can choose to begin your career and finish your degree part-time, usually within two to three years.

The Business Administration offers a number of international exchange opportunities that helps students gain a global perspective of the economy, culture, government, and everyday life of the country they study in.
