Introduction to the BBA Program

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 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.

BBA Program Details

The Bachelor of Business Administration in International Business at Canadian University Dubai (CUD) evaluates the evolution of the United Arab Emirates into a global business hub. Most business entities have a foreign origin, and domestic companies enjoy a degree of international operations.

Accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education, the BBA program will provide students with real world insights into relevant social, political, legal, and macroeconomic factors influencing international business. Students will acquire vital skills and competencies through specialized international courses in economics, business and management, marketing, global logistics, supply chain management, finance and accounting while enhancing their communication skills. Students will also gain effective leadership competencies by engaging in classroom presentations, optional consulting projects, and reports that focus on the globalized environment to prepare them for their career paths.

The BBA program will give students important insights into the differences of how business is conducted domestically and internationally, how to provide superior service to global customers, and how to expand a local business in the global arena. Students will also develop knowledge of how international business practices and customs vary from those in the United Arab Emirates, as well as practical knowledge of how business transactions between and within nations are conducted; covering the laws and logistics of international trade and handling investments in foreign markets.

BBA Career Opportunities
