In a growing economy like ours, businesses present ample opportunities for skilled graduates to excel in their careers. The B.B.A. (Bachelor’s in Business Administration) program, trains students in just that. The B.B.A. is an undergraduate program available in many government and private colleges across the country. It aims to produce graduates who can run businesses efficiently. It helps them hone their managerial skills, entrepreneurship skills and business acumen. Every business needs good managers and thus, skilled B.B.A. graduates from prestigious institutions are in great demand. This 3-year program is interestingly open to school pass-outs from all streams of study- Science, Humanities and Commerce. The program may be available with or without a specialisation in streams such as – H.R., Marketing, Finance. The program is also available in distance learning mode in many colleges. However, the employment statistics of a regular BBA program , looks better than that of a distance mode program. While considering taking admission to this program, one must know the eligibility criteria, availability of the program in different colleges and fees structures. The consolidated information is presented here.
To secure a seat in the B.B.A. program in any college in India, a candidate must have passed 10+2 from a recognised board or school. Candidates must be within the age bracket of 17 to 25 years if they wish to enroll in this course. This is the minimum eligibility criteria for BBA admission. However, some universities might also ask for the fulfilment of additional criteria such as a certain percentage of marks secured in the qualifying examination.
Admission to this program again depends on the university/college which is being considered. Some colleges grant admission based on merit i.e. marks secured in the qualifying examination, while others might ask candidates to appear in the entrance examination. Colleges such as Jai Hind College, Mumbai and ICFAI Business School, Hyderabad grant admission to the BBA program based on marks secured in class 12th while others like Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies offer admission based on entrance test. Entrance exams test candidates on subjects such as quantitative aptitude, English language skills and Comprehension, Logical Reasoning and General Awareness. There is an ample amount of study material available and one can prepare for these exams well in advance, keeping in mind the date of the exams approaching. Students also complete compulsory internship requirements to gain the degree. It gives them the practical experience, managerial skills and professional exposure needed to carve out a successful career ahead. This program also makes students better suited and prepared for the MBA program. Subjects taught in the B.B.A. programs are - Marketing Management, Operations management, financial accounting, business mathematics, business economics, personnel management, labour relations, industry relations etc. As must be obvious by now, it is a professional degree that relies heavily on practical knowledge and exposure. Therefore, one must also check online about the internship opportunities available in every college. Private colleges usually charge higher but the ranking of the colleges does not depend on whether they are government or private.
Apart from these, there are also several great private institutions offering a B.B.A. program. These institutions provide world-class quality education and good employment opportunities. A list of the top 10 private colleges offering this course is available here-
