What is the BBA Course?
So what is a BBA course?. It is a 3-year/6 semester business-focused degree/course, which will help you to get knowledge and skills to face the challenges of the corporate world.
During the BBA course, you’ll face subjects like Cost of Goods Sold analysis, Regular Framework, Quantitative Techniques, Cost-Benefit Analysis, Market saturation, etc.
If any student wants to pursue a BBA degree, then he or she has to pass 12th or 10+2 with Science, Commerce, and Arts stream.
If you are from a commerce background then doing BBA can be easy for you.
But I am not saying that you don’t have a commerce background then BBA will become super hard for you.
I am just saying, have a commerce background will give you a little bit of advantage.
If some want to pursue PG or higher education after completing BBA in the same stream. Then they can go for an MBA ( Master of Business Administration ) because that will be the right choice.
Now I am sure that this question why companies want a BBA graduate. Then let me tell you.
A job to run a company or business in a way which can help it to grow while overcoming the competitor, it is not that easy job. that is where business administrator comes into the play.
How to Take Admission for BBA Course
If you are looking forward to taking admission to the Bachelor of Business Administration course or degree, then there are two ways you can apply for admission.
The first way to apply for admission Bachelor of Business Administration course is direct apply, and the second one is through entrance exams. Let’s go and see both these ways one by one.
If you don’t want to prepare for any entrance exam to get admission to BBA, then you can use this way. Go to a government or private college and apply.
The only downfall that I see with this method or way is, you won’t be able to those high-class BBA colleges which you can only apply through entrance exams.
Below I have mentioned the eligibility criteria for direct admission.
- If a student wants to apply for BBA admission, then completing 12th/10+2 with any of the following stream Science, Commerce, and Arts are mandatory.
- The student who is applying for BBA admission must have scored at least 50% in 10+2/12th.
- Now students who have finished their 12th or 10+2 examination and waiting for the results can also apply for the degree.
Entrance Exam Admission
Now people who don’t want to get admission by using the direct way then you can fight for your admission. I mean you can give entrance exams like IPU CET, NPAT, AIMA UGAT, SET, etc. The side of the method is, you’ll get a chance to secure your seat in top BBA colleges. Below I have mentioned these entrance exams in depth.
IP or Indraprastha University conducts the exam. Indraprastha University Common Entrance Test is a full form of IPU CET.
The Test or Exam let students take admission in their 60 UG, PG, and research courses/degree. Unfortunately, IP University canceled the entrance exam for 2020 due to COVID-19.

Now there are two more career options you can go for after the BBA. The first one is to start a business/start-up, and the second one is government jobs. Let’s see both one by one:-
Starting your own Business
Now many students started their own businesses or continue their family business and made it profitable. Because they learned about every aspect of running a business, but I won’t recommend this way to those people who don’t have patience. Because setting up a profitable and successful business needs patience. So if you are ready to give at least 1 or 2 years to a business, then you can take this way.
This way is also popular among students. Actually, this is the most popular option most people/students choose. So after completing your BBA course, you can apply for government jobs. Currently, the most popular government jobs sectors are banking, electricity boards, railways, police, etc.
Salary of a BBA Graduate
There is no accurate number I can give you because the salary will depend on many factors like your job profile, the college you get the degree from, specialization, etc.
Sorry to say this but you can not expect that you will get a starting package of more than 15 lakhs per year in the beginning, cause that happens very rarely.
So an average salary of a BBA graduate is 2-3.5 lakhs annual. But don’t demotivate yourself, cause if you have the ability then within no time your salary will start growing.
