New Mexico Highlands University’s Department of Business Administration, accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), allows students to prepare for and advance their careers by earning a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree with concentrations in accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, general business, management, marketing, and media marketing.

Why choose NMHU’s Department of Business Administration?
NMHU is consistently rated #1 in student satisfaction in New Mexico. Better yet, NMHU provides one of New Mexico’s most cost-effective business degrees. We offer small class sizes (15:1 instructor/student ratio), a family atmosphere, and unparalleled access to faculty.

Our BBA courses may be completed at our main campus or online, giving students the flexibility to schedule courses around work and family. NMHU is also an open enrollment institution, and many of our students are the first in their family to attend college.

The Department of Business Administration’s academic programs focus on practical applications and teach in-demand skills. Students will build a professional portfolio of work and complete valuable professional certifications. This makes our graduates highly marketable.
