If you have a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, it's B.S.B.A. If you have a Bachelor of Business Administration, it's B.B.A. And then underneath, you would put your major. So if, for example, you have a B.B.A. in Accounting, it would look like this:

B.B.A., received May 20xx
Major: Accounting

Also I would do this:
bk1 wrote:University of Longassdegreenames
Degree: B.S.B.A. 20XX, cum laude
Major: Accounting

Or something like that.

^Added the honors. And make sure if you are going to abbreviate B.S.B.A. you use J.D. (and not Juris Doctor).
