Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)


All full-time undergraduate degree programmes are offered over a minimum period of three years.


MGI’s Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree is specifically designed for those students who wish to develop their careers within a business context. This qualification will assist them in gaining the business-related knowledge and skills necessary to build, grow and utilise business opportunities. These principles can either be practised within an established company or applied in a new business.

Students complement theoretical knowledge with practical assignments and projects. One such project is the Market Day, when second year students start and manage a “real” business on campus.
