Higher education in Britain has distinguishing levels of qualification. A degree is either a BA or BSc (Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science) according to the subject studied. A degree in history for instance would result in a BA, while a degree in computing has a BSc label.
The next level is a "Masters" - MA or MSc (for the same reasons), but with the additional opportunity of MBA (Master of Business Administration).
