What is the difference from a BSc degree and BBA degree when studying Economics and Finance?

When studying economics and finance in University, what is the difference between a BSc [Honours Bachelor of Science (Physical & Mathematical Sciences)] and a BBA degree. Which will allow for better and more high level job opportunities after graduation?

The difference usually involves support courses and breadth requirements for electives as one is offered by the faculty of science and the other by the faculty of arts. A B.Sc. might have more required math courses, require some form of science electives, and possibly a 4th year thesis. A BBA may require arts/humanities/ss electives. There may also be different minimum GPA requirements for progression and graduation. 

If you want to know specifically pick two programs, one a B.Sc. and one a BBA and look up the specific course requirements in the academic calendar and map them out side by side.

You realize that you're comparing two very different fields, right? You're acting as if both programs are interchangeable.

Personally I would go for Bachelor of science, you would have a greater chance in the job market,you might get into some jobs that manipulate data like; Data scientist,Financial engineer(If you decide to take computational science,engineer or mathematics grad school level.) Financial officer and data analyst.
