A Bachelor of Business (BBus) is a three or four year business degree offered by many universities around the world, particularly the newer universities from the post-Dawkins era in Australia and New Zealand . It is similar in format and structure to a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), Bachelor of Business Science (BBusSci) and Bachelor of Business Studies (BBS). A bachelors degree (Artium Baccalaureus, A.B. or B.A.) is usually an undergraduate academic degree awarded for a course or major that generally lasts for three, four, or in some cases and countries, five or six years. ...
Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) is a bachelors degree in Business Administration. ...
The Bachelor of Business Science (BBusSci) degree is aimed at students who wish to make a career in a Business Enterprise. ...
In Australia, it is awarded by former non-university tertiary insitutions which include institutes of technologies, such as RMIT and Swinburne, and Colleges/Institutes of Advanced Education such as Canberra College of Advanced Education. Some former colleges such as Ballarat College of Advanced Education have renamed it to Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) after achieving university status.
By virtue of its history Bachelor of Business qualification was classed as a college degree, and it was introduced to institutes and colleges to distinguish it from university business degrees such as Bachelor of Commerce or Bachelor of Economics. This was primarily due to the divide that had existed under a binary system of higher education in Australia in the pre-Dawkins era of higher education reforms.
