BBA in Entrepreneurship



New ventures are starting at a record rate and there’s no end in sight. The recent economic meltdown has forced many people to begin a business essentially to create a job for themselves. However, many of these businesses will not survive. Starting a business is more than opening a store or beginning a service. For a business to survive and grow today, business owners must understand how business works. Accounting, finance, marketing, economics, and management must all work together if the business is to sustain and grow.
