Bachelor of Business Administration at The Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) at Main

Make a mark with the industry-recognized Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree. Graduates stand out in the job market with a wealth of business knowledge and skills - and a more in-depth level of relevant business coursework than graduates from other business degrees.

Students engage in small classes with active, collaborative coursework - learning from faculty with real business experience. They work in teams to deliver projects, present strategies and meet business goals. The Bachelor of Business Administration ensures students develop the business acumen, technical knowledge, and soft skills employers are looking for - leadership, teamwork, critical thinking, decision-making, problem-solving and communication.

Students start with a common first year to build core business skills. In year two, students choose from six majors: Accounting, Financial Services, Human Resource (HR) Management, Management, Marketing or Supply Chain Management. They can enhance industry literacy with an optional minor in Construction Project Management or Energy, Oil and Gas. Southern Alberta Institute of Technology's close industry partnerships ensure that learning is directly linked to the business community and real-world experiences.

The final course is an Integrated Work Experience.  Students will have the opportunity to apply learned knowledge and skills to real-world business situations, while further developing critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication capabilities.


  • Accounting: Understand the strategic role of accounting in measuring financial performance. In SAIT’s Accounting major, students gain advanced knowledge in core accounting topics and quantitative skills. They will graduate with all the courses they need to directly enter the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) program and earn their designation.
  • Financial Services: Study for a career in financial advising, banking, investing, or insurance for personal or corporate clients. The unique Financial Services major lets students complete exams for key industry certifications (IFIC, CSC). They can graduate with in-demand financial credentials already in hand.
  • Human Resource (HR) Management: Graduate ready to add strategic value to organizations in recruitment, compensation, employee training and development, change management or navigating diversity. In this Human Resources Institute of Alberta (HRIA)-accredited program, students are exempt from writing the national exam for their Certified Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) designation.
  • Management: Through this stream students will open the door to a diverse career with effective skills in managing people, processes and projects. In Management, students  learn about projects, operations, change and conflict through practical classes. Specialize their electives and learn the language of industry with a minor in energy or construction.
  • Marketing: Learn to create and innovate to grow a business, launch new products and build brands - sometimes for actual clients. In Marketing, students master the marketing mix, embrace the latest trends and blend theory with real-world scenarios. Graduate with a professional portfolio and prepared for exciting careers.
  • Supply Chain Management: Learn to effectively manage supply chains using examples from real companies. Students will delve deeply into procurement, logistics, transportation, inventory and warehouse management, supplier relations, contracts and performance analytics. Students will graduate ready to excel with unique skills from the only Supply Chain Management degree major in southern Alberta.
