A Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program and a Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com.) course are both basically commerce-based three-year undergraduate programs (a few institutes may have an extra year for BBA if they give a study abroad option in the final year). However, first and foremost, before focusing on which to opt for in terms of a career after graduating, you need to be aware of the course fee. That is, can you afford the fee for a BBA course? Any management-based course is going to be expensive, and this goes for a BBA, too. While pursuing BBA, especially if you are doing so in a top institute in a metro city like Bengaluru or Mumbai, you may be paying fees of over 3 lakhs for the three-year program. A B.Com. course, on the other hand, would definitely be less expensive.

If you don't want to gasp over the fees, what you actually need to consider, then, is what field or profession you wish to take up after graduation. For example, if you are keen to become a Chartered Accountant or a Company Secretary or take up a job in a bank, it makes no sense to pay high fees and pursue a BBA. A B.Com. Degree is obviously what you should get. On the other hand, if you wish to do something specifically related to managing some aspect of a business in more detail than just the finance and accounting aspects, such as working on the operations of a business, then you should go for a BBA. Consider a recruitment notification for a business development executive. Here, the preference would be surely for a candidate with a BBA.

Next, consider what you will learn. The thing is the syllabus of both BBA and B.Com. is more or less similar. So it is not as though modules related to HR or marketing are only in the BBA course. It is there for a B.Com. course as well. The difference would be in the more detailed manner in which it is taken up in a BBA course, such as working on case studies.

Looking ahead in terms of a postgraduate qualification, it is a good idea to take up an M.Com. after completing B.Com. An MBA, of course, is very popular, but you don't need a BBA to be eligible for it. A B.Com. will do just fine. Keep in mind, though, that you will likely also have to appear for a management entrance exam like CAT or MAT and so on. Another option would be doing a Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM). Here, again, check out the fees first as you will be surprised to find out that pursuing that PG management diploma is more expensive than an MBA!

The bottom line is not to necessarily go in for the hype around a degree with the words 'business administration' in it. Consider the affordability, and have 100% clarity on the career that you want to enter, to make an informed choice.

BBA or B.Com, which is preferred?
Before making a decision, one should consider the following.

1. What are your career goals?
2. Which subject do you like more.?

Based on the answers to the above two questions you can take a decision.

BBA talks more about business administration. It is a 3-year undergraduate course after the 12th class. B. Com is more about commerce. It is a 3-year undergraduate course only.

Whatever subject we study we should be very conversant with the subject and we should be at the top of rank holders. This will help you to get seats for higher studies or to get a good job in the line you prefer.

These days are very competitive and we should be very good at the subject to grab the jobs. So decide your career plan and decide on your interest and then think of the course.

B.Com is a very generalised course and you will have more options for your higher studies. For example, after BBA, you can't opt for M.Com. But after B.Com, you can opt for MBA.

Another point is getting a seat. BBA colleges are fewer and getting a seat in a good college may be difficult and you may have to pay higher amounts as fees. B.Com is available in many colleges and you will have a good choice and can select a good college. The fees may also be less in this case.

There may not be a big difference in the syllabus you study in BBA or B Com. Maybe in BBA, you may be asked to go for an internship so that you will get some hands-on experience in practical situations.

Many private industries and good corporates also give more importance to your knowledge and experience in practical situations than the qualifications. BBA or B Com. Both are the same for them.

Take a decision based on your ultimate career plans and interest.

BBA and B.Com are very popular undergraduate courses among students completing their 12th class from the commerce stream. Subjects a student learns in BBA and B.Com are similar to some extent, like economics, accountancy, taxation, etc. However, there are further additional subjects in BBA related to management studies which make them called management professionals.

Selection criteria should also take into a point from which college you are doing any of these courses. If you are getting a better college in any of these then give preference to the college, because this management gene can be easily learnt during PG by pursuing MBA. Also, most of the time corporate take out vacancies as BBA/B.Com, which means they consider hiring any of these.

Nowadays, there are several integrated programs for management studies so you can opt for them also, which gives BBA and MBA degrees and would also save you one year. Even the reputed institutions that do not offer degrees are offering these integrated courses, so you can add these to your checklist also before opting for a college.

BBA (Bachelor in Business Administration) and B.Com both are good for commerce students. If you want to make a career in the field of administration, then BBA is the best course for you. After BBA, you can do MBA (Master in Business Administration) in different fields and make a good career in administration. The packages for MBA students are very good in India and in abroad.

After doing B. Com you can do M. Com. After that there are many options are available for you. The best option is to do M.Phill or PhD and become a professor at the university.
