Secondary Area Depths

Secondary area depths supplement expertise in a primary depth and require a minimum of three elective courses. In order to equip BBA students to meet the challenges of a fast changing and globally integrated world, the faculty has designed cross-functional depths that make use of a range of electives from across academic areas. Secondary depths allow you to benefit from additional directed choices that provide focused study but integrated thinking.

A student wishing to pursue one primary and one secondary depth may use one listed elective in the primary depth to fulfill the requirements of the secondary depth. As a result, in order to fulfill one primary and one secondary depth, students must complete a minimum of 6 electives.
