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:

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.
