About this program

Bachelor of Business Administration in International Business

Looking to learn how to do business on a global scale? Seeking the opportunity to join the multinational, cross-cultural workforce in the United Arab Emirates? Today’s firms view the entire globe as a potential marketplace, increasing the demand for international business professionals to provide superior and competitive products and services worldwide. The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in International Business will provide students with the essential knowledge, management techniques, and skills required to conduct international business operations in an ever-changing global marketplace.

While the international business environment shares many common principles with domestic business practices, it is also distinct due to its range and scope. Hence, it is important to develop graduates who are equipped to compete and manage businesses internationally. The increasing globalization of commercial operations has generated a demand for professionals that are competent in analyzing and developing international business strategies. The Bachelor of Business Administration in International Business is an undergraduate degree designed to prepare students for managerial careers in the increasingly competitive and interdependent international business markets.
