BBA Or Integrated MBA?

integrated mba and bba courses after 10th and 12th

After HSC, students are more often than not confused about choosing one course or the other. They might select a course under peer pressure or haste and it might not be the right decision. One such confusion is between taking up BBA and taking up BBA+MBA i.e., an integrated MBA

BBA

BBA is a three year undergraduate programme in business administration. The course lays the groundwork to develop business acumen in an individual, inculcate entrepreneurial abilities and act as a launch pad for a successful career in the business environment.



Eligibility Criteria

Although eligibility criteria might differ from one institute to the other, most institutes have similar criteria.

  • students who have passed 10+2 in any stream and
  • have obtained 50% marks in average.

Scope

A BBA degree can get you an entry-level position in an organization, but will not provide you with enough growth opportunities unless you follow it up with an MBA. With a BBA degree, clearing the interview round should be easier, compared to people from other backgrounds. While MBA courses are quite advanced, having your fundamentals clear in subjects like Human Resource Management (HRM), Financial Law and Management Information Systems will help you immensely when you plan to go for an MBA.

Integrated BBA+MBA

The advantage here lies in that once you’ve laid a solid groundwork in you graduation; it becomes much easier to select the specialization of your choice. The five year course amongst its many benefits gives you a solid grounding in the basics of subjects like HR, Finance, MIS, etc and then hones your skills in a specific area, immensely boosting your job prospects.

Eligibility Criteria

The eligibility criteria might differ from one institute to the other, but most institutes have similar criteria.

  • who have passed 10+2 in any stream and
  • have obtained 50% marks in average.

Scope

Equipped with an MBA, you will have a lot more opportunities in the job market. Since you will have a specialization in a certain field, you will be given preference over someone with a just a bachelor's degree. In addition, students with both BBA and MBA degrees are more likely to land higher management posts in their first jobs.

Word of Caution

If you plan to go for an integrated BBA plus MBA programme, make sure you do it from an institute of repute. A student who completes his Bachelors in Business Administration from a not so well known institute will still have a chance to pursue an MBA from an institute of repute, which might not be the case with a student who takes up a dual degree course from a not so well known institute.
