  • Being from a commerce background, you can go for BBA, which is more related to business administration. But you can also go with your interest and if you have an interest in computers, you may even go for BCA.
    Job aspects or career options after both BBA and BCA are on the lower side and you may need to pursue post-graduation, that is MCA or MBA to have good job options.

    After BBA and MBA, you can go for private and corporate firms for a job. They may hire directly or may offer you a specific training as per their requirement and they offer our a designation. There are many colleges and universities including both government as well as private are having very good placements after MBA.

    After BCA and then MCA, your domain will be related to computers software and this field is having good career options in the current situation. This field has good opportunities in abroad also for deserving candidates.

    Now comes your query about types of college. It is important to know that in which type of college or university, you can get admission. In good government colleges, admissions are difficult and in good private colleges, the fee structure is quite high. So, you have to think accordingly.
    Please beware of fake colleges and check the details of any private college carefully.


    Living & Learning- simultaneous processes!

  • BBA is regarding business administration. BCA is regarding computer application. Both the courses are undergraduate level. With these qualifications, you will be eligible to go for a bank job or state group services or Civil services. But all depends on how best you are in your subject and how much hard work you can put in and how much focused you will be. There are no specific jobs which are exclusively for BBA or BCA students. To have a better future and more career options you should think of Post graduation course. Otherwise, after completing the above course you may have to go for BEd and then you will be primary school or high school teacher.

    always confident

  • Both BBA and BCA are the graduate degrees in the streams of Business Administration and Computer Applications respectively. These degrees are definitely better than ordinary graduation - degrees such as B.A or B.Com since in the former case, the aspirants get specialised skills which can be conveniently updated in the higher levels by persuing either MBA or MCA course.
    Despite the fact the said courses are specialised in nature, the aspirants can take up all the competitive examinations such Probationary Officers Examination conducted by both Nationlised banks or the private ones such as ICICI, Axis Bank, Kotak Mahindra etc.
    You can appear for the Civil Services or for its allied services.
    You can appear for the job of clerical nature in the different organisations such as Banks, LIC, Railways, jobs in the State - government etc.
    These are general prospects of either BBA or BCA degree.
    Let me clarify your doubt being raised by you -
    A commerce student can definitely choose the BBA course for the advanced knowledge in the domain of Finance and Accountancy since such a cirricula has been included in their courses of studies. It would be even better than the prevailing degree of B.Com because of wide coverage of the former course.
    Being a BBA, you can join as Management - trainee ( Administration) in the different Public Sectors such as SAIL, DVC, ONGC, NTPC etc provided you have passed out with minimum of 60 percent marks from a reputed college and the university is recognised from UGC.
    If you join as an Accounts Trainee in some private organisation, it would be better to pass some more departmental examination or you need to acquire an MBA degree from a reputed institution for your faster growth.
    A degree in JITS would certainly be better than Kolhan University because of good reputation of the former one.

  • Studying BCA and then MCA will be of meaning and help if you like choose a job having computer applications. It is more suited to job related to computers.

    However BBA is a basic course on Business Administration. After BBA you can take PG course in MBA. Of course MBA is a course and career now taken by many youth. Taking MBA from reputed and premium institutions and passing with good grade can enable one to get good jobs in Management cadre.

    But on the graduate level, both BBA and BCA are eligible for many general jobs where the basic eligibility is graduation.
    When I joined a bank with a Science graduation degree, another person joined with BBA. But he had a slightly faster career growth because along with the other eligibility, his BBA study helped him for a quick start. However we cannot generalise it now as there are various parameters in career growth.

  • The primary thing in choosing an educational career is interest and liking. What is your interest? Is it more in business management side or computer related. Remember a person can put his all out efforts only in his area of liking. It is the key to scoring well also. Many people do this mistake of joining a stream just based on job prospects but can not do the commensurate hard work there. So I will advise you to find out your area of interest before going ahead in this matter.

    Anyway, BBA is much more versatile than BCA as compared to the variety of the jobs available in the industrial arena. BBA followed by MBA is the fool proof way of getting in the industry. You have to select a good institution for doing these professional courses as only then you can hope for recruitment against the prestigious campus recruitments. Please also note that today the job position is becoming more and more tough with time and there is cut throat competition everywhere so it is necessary that one should work hard to come on the top merit list so that chances for direct absorption by the industries becomes a reality.

    For those, who have a liking for computer related fields like software area, they can go for the BCA degree but this is a specialised field in the sense that a lot of progress is made in this area and one has to toil hard to do outstanding work here. It is not for the generalists.

    Being a student with commerce background you can think of a career in banking and after your BBA or BCA can attempt in the combined exam held by IBPS (Institute of Banking Personnel Selection ) every year for recruitment to public sector bank vacancies in our country. This exam is held in two stages that is prelim and mains and if you prepare for it as per the syllabus you can get success there. For private banks you have to apply separately.

    Have you any inclination for state or central administrative services. If yes, you can consider for preparing for these exams after the graduation. These are highly coveted services and require a lot of hard work to qualify but if one has a determined and focussed goal one can very well achieve it.

    Another option after graduation is to apply for the top PSUs of our country like NTPC, Coal India, ONGC, IOC etc where they have their own exam and selection procedure for the executives.

    Today we are entering in an era of self employment as job opportunities are shrinking day by day. People who have a knack for business, innovation and new ideas are starting their own work or joining a group of like minded people creating self employment. This is a shift from the traditional ways when everyone went to hunt a job rather to start something by oneself. Govt Mudra loan scheme is a part of this paradigm shift only.

    Regarding the second part of your question as per the rankings available in many educational sites in the internet JITS appears to be better than Kolahan university as far as BBA is considered.

    Knowledge is power.

  • Earlier there was graduate courses in arts,science and humanities as BA, BSC, BCOM. Later in the guise of advancement with money motive they split the three into thirty. In this way only many courses grown. However as far as BBA,Bachelor of Business Administration concerns is nothing but a commerce and administration related graduation. It is nothing to worry or getting confused and is equally considered for managerial administrative jobs.

  • Since there is a slump in terms of the actual number of people employed in the IT sector, it does make sense to do the BBA course. However, please do note that the BBA degree alone is not adequate to get a job. In one of my recent articles, I had mentioned that the number of good institutes offering the MBA program are thirty and these are apart from the IIMs.

    Please do note that you need to compulsorily do the MBA course. If however, your family needs you to take up a job immediately, please do note that you have no alternative but to work your way up only through experience. Go to a local institute and do the Tally course. Join any trading company and get immersed in it. If you keen on marketing, you should check with the outsourced outfits of Giants like Unilever. There are such organizations employing raw graduates and your job will be to feed the wholesalers and get them to push sales of all products of the MNC giant. It is not marketing job perse. However, you will still learn the nitty gritty of supply chain management and work your way up. After four years, you could get a supervisory position and after another three years you must do the MBA in the form of an Executive MBA to stand any chance of making it in your management career. This is a must. With a BBA background you either do a full time MBA course or an Executive MBA course after work experience. It is not advisable for you to even try for an entry level position in HR as the organizations always insist on the MBA degree or the MSW degree with HR as specialization. Please do whatever suits you. However, you could either enter supply chain management or Finance. That is, basic accounting jobs. It is a hard climb. It is not an easy talk or route. Hard work always pays in life.
