My school does something similar with engineering. You can get a B.S. degree in a specific field, like mechanical or chemical etc., or you can get a B.A. degree in engineering studies. If you want to do design, you need to be a mechanical engineer. If you want to own a firm, you need to be a mechanical engineer. If you want to work in engineering management, then you want to do engineering studies. It also allows you to pick up other classes to do a minor or double major (for us, B.S. is 38 credits, B.A. is 32). I would talk to a professor in each department and ask them about the advantages of each at your school. It might be the case that you could pick up a foreign language (minor or second major) with the B.A. degree that you wouldn't be able to with the B.S. degree. Other things to ask are typical careers, and if one is limiting in any way.

If they are both business degrees I dont think it will really matter. If you want to do research then maybe a BSc. A BA might give you more writing skills and critical thinking, where as a BSc would be useful for analysis. Thats my assumption at least. In my field having a BSc had no advantages.
ive never heard of a business program getting someone a B.Sc though and i dont really get how that makes sense lol
Do you think pros have fun when they are training so they can win comps and put food on the table to support their baby momma? Fuck fun its all about the Cash serious people need to eating and eating is not always fun

Personally I think its best to do whatever your strengths are. I had a similar option I could have done a bachelor of kinesiology or a bachelor of science in kinesiology, I chose to do the first, and my GPA was likely 15% higher and was accepted into grad school because of it. Also having worked for a year as well, none of my employers have cared or even asked if people have a Bkin, BSc or BA. As long as its relevant in the field. I'm also curious to see how many of these people who are saying BSc are so much better if they have been in the working field yet. Because like someone else said, the skills you gain in your undergrad are pretty useless in the workplace. Its just a piece of paper you need to get out of the way.
Like there are no disadvantages to getting a BSc, but if you think you would be more successful taking arts orientated courses, I just don't think its a bad option.
I am 29 this month, and I have beat around the bush with community college arts and sciences degrees that don't amount to a hill of beans in the job market. If you are going for a career that has anything to do with numbers, computers, government, construction, or anything else, you will be the guy that actually knows things with a BS versus a highly skilled bullshit artist that a BA gets you
To think everyone is programmed to understand science and be able to achieve a BS degree is assinine. The truth is, everyone is different and excels in different fields. So no, I'm not "mad cuz bad." I'm disappointed some people can't find a good side to anything and spew cunty shit. Then I feel compelled to try to enlighten the individual to be more open minded and less douchey. In turn, wasting 2 and a half minutes constructing an argument where I'd be better off talking to my dog..
I have a BA and went back to add a BSc. Difference is usually 12-15 credit hours depending on the institution. The BSc is viewed as the more competitive degree from employers - last I saw I think the salary difference was $7-10k annually for standard BA/BS entry level work.
I also don't know if it contributed, but I applied to law school with the BA and was wait-listed as one of fifty million people who had a BA and a 3.5-3.8 GPA. I took two semesters, got the BSc and reapplied to law school and was accepted. Same GPA range, same LSAT scores, all that stuff.
that interesting, every school I have spoken to says they cannot distinguish GPAs based on program, it may have been a less competitive year, I have also heard of some programs giving preference to those who have applied multiple times.
