Why do so many people choose to study a Bachelor of Business Administration over Bachelor's degrees in other fields? The answer to this question can probably be found in recent changes in the world economy and the growing level of industries’ globalization. Cleary, under the influence of global changes, the perception of fundamental business principles is gradually reshaping. As business, in general, is exposed to globalization, major multinational corporations do not need just a good manager with basic knowledge - what they are looking for is a skilled and talented expert with a broad knowledge base, who is able to perform equally effectively in different positions. A Bachelor of Business Administration degree is essential for those whose goal is either to create a successful career in general business positions or create their own business of any kind. A BBA in Barcelona, one of the top business hubs and most innovative cities in the world, provides a great opportunity to lay a solid foundation of business administration combined with... [-]
