Choosing the first courses to get started

Undergraduate students taking the BBA programmes in English are recommended to begin their BBA studies with one of the School's introductory courses such as BUS B103 English and Communications for Business I, BIS B123 Business Computing Applications, or BUS B171 Business Statistics.

They are then free to complete a general degree, or to specialize in a range of business disciplines.
