Many of the Indian management institutes are offering an undergraduate program BBA for those who have completed their schools and want to make a career in business administration, or management related fields. The way MBA stands for Master of Business Administration, BBA stands for Bachelor of Business Administration. While MBA can only be joined in after completion of graduation programs, BBA can be joined after completion of 12th standard of the education or just after finishing the schools. This is a junior level program which prepares students to start early in the corporate world. Many students wonder if they should join BBA as a career option. They sometimes feel uncertain about the career prospects after completing BBA and wish someone could guide them through it. Here are some important points to help you know if BBA is a good course to go with:
BBA is a junior level program for an early entry into corporate world. This program provides you sufficient education and training to start your career as a trainee or junior level in corporate world.

Mostly it is a 3 years full time training program which equips students with necessary knowledge and skills in common business areas such as marketing, finance, humane resource, etc. and, just like it is with MBAs, students can receive specialized training in their selected field.
As this course equips students with the relevant education and practices, it has much better prospects than conventional graduation programs like B. A., B. Com., B.Sc., etc. after which students are often required to take up vocational training programs to become eligible for a job in the industry.
A BBA graduate can apply direct for various positions in the industry at junior level. Students then can continue their master level program while working somewhere and can earn degree, experience and money all.
There are some other similar courses such as BBS (Bachelor of Business Studies), BMS (Bachelor of Management Studies), etc. All the specializations are good hence students should consider one that suits best to his/her interests and abilities. For example, one who has strong numerical and analytical skills can take up Finance field, while one who has got strong interpersonal communication skills can choose Marketing as a career option here.
Before opting for the course, students must make sure that they do it from a reputed college/university or institute only as it matters very much in the industry where you complete education from.
