One very popular query among students who have completed their Class 12 board exams is whether to pursue Bachelor of Business Administration, commonly known as BBA or Bachelor of Commerce or B.Com. Though B.Com is considered more traditional, over the years the courses have changed with the changing economy. BBA has now become a popular choice though students deciding between the two are often confused due to lack of appropriate guidance, assistance, and information.
Bachelor of Business Administration or BBA in India is a 3 year degree course which is planned in such a way as to instruct management learning and introduce entrepreneurship skills in a student. The influential factor of selecting BBA over B.Com is a job in the field of management or directing your career as an entrepreneur. Possessing just a BBA degree might fetch you a job at entry level, but won’t provide you with adequate growth prospects unless you continue with an MBA from an institute of repute as well.
Unlike BBA in India, A B.Com degree trains a student with basic concepts and fundamentals on Accountancy, Finance, Business Administration, Industrial Policies and Economics. It has been a profitable career option with students. It is the first essential step for students who hope to pursue careers in Taxation, and other fields as mentioned above.
Though B.Com is not considered a professional course, if you complete it from a reputed university; you immediately open your options for a variety of good placements in various industries. BBA in India is offered in less universities compared to BCom, though several have started with similar courses such as BBS.
BCom is more for those who have an affinity for numbers, where BBA requires communication and leadership skills as well. Entry to BCom courses is also a little more difficult as cut offs are higher, and Maths is compulsory. BBA, however, is usually dependent on performance in an entrance test and a minimum of 50% in Class 12.
