3 Reasons to Earn a BBA Degree Online

If you are seeking more rewarding career opportunities, one of your best options is to obtain a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree. An online BBA program is a flexible and affordable way to continue your education while keeping your current job. Here are three reasons why this degree is worth considering.

1. A BBA Degree Can Help You Move Up at Your Present Job

If you are seeking a better-paying position with greater responsibilities than your current job, a bachelor’s degree may help you achieve this. As you study for your BBA degree, you will gain a strong background in many important business skills. The following are some topics you may study:

  • Financial accounting
  • Business law
  • Management
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Marketing
  • Human resources
  • Business technologies

Studying these and other areas of business can make it easier for you to move up in your present company. Depending on the school you choose and your career objectives, you can decide which area of concentration is best for you.

2. You Will Be Qualified to Get a Better Job With Another Company

Perhaps you would prefer to find a new job at another company. You may even be seeking an entirely different career. If so, you are not alone. In surveying nearly 33,000 people from all over the globe, the ADP Research Institute found that roughly seven in 10 workers considered a “major career move” in 2021. And the workers who switched jobs saw an average wage increase of 8%. An online bachelor’s degree program can give you the knowledge and skills you need to explore a wider range of jobs.

A BBA can also help you achieve your financial goals. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median 2021 earnings of full-time workers with a bachelor’s degree was about $525 more per week than the median pay for full-time workers with only a high school diploma. With an online program, you can keep your current job, earn your degree and start applying for the kind of job you really want.

3. You Can Earn a More Practical Degree That Helps Your Career

Some people with bachelor’s degrees realize that their major does not line up with their career goals, so they feel stuck in their current situation. Obtaining a second degree may be the solution. For example, you may have a degree in English, art history or another field in the humanities or social sciences. If you are seeking a business career, a Bachelor of Business Administration may help you acquire skills that employers value like communication, leadership and critical thinking.

Earning your degree online is an efficient way to achieve this goal without disrupting your current schedule. Online degree programs are quite flexible when it comes to start dates and give you the ability to complete coursework when it is most convenient.

Plus, online BBA programs may allow students to transfer in credit hours from previous collegiate study, meaning the time and effort you have already put into school does not go to waste. For instance, students in Lamar University’s online BBA programs may transfer in up to 90 credit hours, expediting degree completion and the opportunities that come with it.

Lamar University also offers several online BBA program options, so you can tailor your business education to your career goals and interests. If you dream of starting your own business, a BBA in Entrepreneurship might be right for you. If you are interested in how information systems are changing modern business, take a look at Lamar University’s BBA in Management Information Systems. Specializing in such a high-demand field can lead to myriad career possibilities.

These are just some of the reasons that an online BBA degree may be the next logical step for you. This degree can help you move forward in your career, whether you want to expand your potential at your current job or find a new one.
