Overview

Highlights

The General Business Administration program from the Thompson Rivers University is designed for students who do not wish to specialize in a specific area of business like Accounting, Finance, Economics, Human Resources, International Business, Marketing, New Venture Creation or Supply Chain Management, but instead would like to take a wider array of courses to provide greater breadth in their management education. 

Careers

Many positions in business require the varied skills that a generalist can offer, so choosing the general BBA can be a wise choice especially for students whose interests lie in a number of different areas.
