Today on the TrainSmart Australia blog, we take a look at a few points to consider – including job opportunities for new Business Administration graduates – and explore the skills necessary to gain employment in this field.
So what is Business Administration?
It’s quite common these days to see the letters ‘BBA’ or ‘MBA’ included in the qualifications section of a person’s CV or LinkedIn profile. But what is business administration (BA) all about?
To put it simply, Business Administration is all about managing and overseeing the day-to-day operational tasks involved in running a business, including: accounting, managing staff, and marketing.
In Australia, business administration roles are in high demand, with the Australian Government predicting strong future growth for roles such as Business Analysts; Management and Organisation Analysts; and Advertising, Public Relations and Sales Managers over the next 5 years (source: joboutlook.gov.au).
As demand for roles in business administration continues to grow in Australia, more and more people are choosing to study for a qualification in business administration – such as an MBA (Master of Business Administration) or BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration) – to better compete in the job market and improve their chances at securing a job in this sought-after area.
