Overview

Make your mark with the industry-recognized Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree. You can stand out in the job market with a wealth of business knowledge and skills - and a more in-depth level of relevant business coursework than graduates from other business degrees.

You engage in small classes with active, collaborative coursework, learning from faculty with real business experience. You work in teams to deliver projects, present strategies and meet business goals. The BBA ensures you develop the business acumen, technical knowledge, and soft skills employers are looking for - leadership, teamwork, critical thinking, decision-making, problem-solving and communication.

You start with a common first year to build core business skills. In year two, you choose from six majors and enhance your industry literacy with an optional minor in Construction Project Management or Energy, Oil and Gas. Our close industry partnerships ensure that your learning is directly linked to the business community and real-world experiences.

Majors:

  • Accounting: understand the strategic role of accounting in measuring financial performance. In SAIT’s Accounting major, you gain advanced knowledge in core accounting topics and quantitative skills. You graduate with all the courses you need to directly enter the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) program and earn your designation.
  • Financial Services: study for a career in financial advising, banking, investing, or insurance for personal or corporate clients. The unique Financial Services major lets you complete exams for key industry certifications (IFIC, CSC). You can graduate with in-demand financial credentials already in hand.
  • Human Resource (HR) Management: graduate ready to add strategic value to organizations in recruitment, compensation, employee training and development, change management or navigating diversity. In this Human Resources Institute of Alberta (HRIA)-accredited program, you are exempt from writing the national exam for your Certified Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) designation.
  • Management: open the door to a diverse career with effective skills in managing people, processes and projects. In Management, you learn about projects, operations, change and conflict through practical classes. Specialize your electives and learn the language of industry with a minor in energy or construction.
  • Marketing: learn to create and innovate to grow a business, launch new products and build brands - sometimes for actual clients. In Marketing, you master the marketing mix, embrace the latest trends and blend theory with real-world scenarios. Graduate with a professional portfolio and prepared for exciting careers.
  • Supply Chain Management: learn to effectively manage supply chains using examples from real companies. You delve deeply into procurement, logistics, transportation, inventory and warehouse management, supplier relations, contracts and performance analytics. You graduate ready to excel with unique skills from the only Supply Chain Management degree major in southern Alberta.

The BBA also offers two optional minors:

  • Construction Project Management: get the inside track for a business role in the robust Canadian construction industry. You learn the process of managing large capital construction projects including risk and conflict on construction sites, design considerations and more.
  • Energy, Oil and Gas: prepare to work in Alberta’s dynamic energy industry with courses from the state-of-the-art MacPhail School of Energy. You learn the language of the industry with insights into technical, regulatory and economic factors and more.

Your final course is an Integrated Work Experience. You will have the opportunity to apply learned knowledge and skills to real-world business situations, while further developing critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication capabilities.

Is this the right fit for me?

To be successful in this academically rigorous program, you should:

  • attend and actively participate in all classes
  • spend six to nine hours per week on each course outside of regular class time
  • be proficient in Windows and Microsoft Office
  • be prepared to work in teams
  • be prepared for increasing level of difficulty each year
  • become familiar and adhere to SAIT's policies and procedures
  • have strong written and oral communication skills.

If you are engaged in campus life and take advantage of SAIT services and resources, you’ll be more likely to experience success in SAIT's programs.

Professional designations and certifications

When you graduate, you can pursue different professional designations, depending on your major. In some cases, we have formal agreements with professional associations to recognize BBA coursework for their educational requirements. You may need additional exams, education, or work requirements to earn a designation.

  • Accounting: you graduate with all pre-requisite educational requirements needed to enter the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) Professional Education Program.
  • Financial Services: you have the opportunity to complete the Investment Funds in Canada (IFIC) and Canadian Securities Course (CSC) exams in the program. You can graduate with your Personal Financial Planner (PFP) designation in hand by passing the necessary exams. The Financial Planning Standards Council recognizes the program as meeting the Core Curriculum requirements for the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) certification.
  • Human Resource Management: this program is accredited by the Human Resources Insitute of Alberta, exempting you from writing the national knowledge exam for your Certified Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) designation. You can also pursue designations including Registered Professional Recruiter (RPR), and Certified Training and Development Professional (CTDP).
  • Management: you can pursue the Certified in Management (CIM) designation.
  • Marketing: you can pursue the Certified Sales Professional (CSP) designation.
