How a student can decide for choosing between BBA and B.com after 12th? What are the important factors to be considered?
BBA & B.Com though have some similarity but the objective of undergoing the degrees is quite different. BBA orients a student towards business management and B.Com orients a student towards accounting & finance. If a student is willing to pursue a career in finance, it is advisable for him or her to choose B.Com as it would provide a solid foundation for further studies, may it be M.Com, CA,CS,CFA. If a student is willing to study business management and wants to explore different areas of business function, in that case BBA would provide a base for further studies. In recent years job opportunities for BBA have considerably increased. Work experience after BBA helps in applying practical knowledge during MBA course. So based on the liking & available alternatives that a student has, he or she could choose between B.Com & BBA.

Be it Arts, commerce or science, students from all the streams are opting for various management courses after 12th standard. Please highlight your thoughts about it.
As stated earlier, management courses after 12th standard provides enormous opportunity to explore from in different industries. Today’s management education has become more industry specific where students have more choices to choose from not only courses but also which industry, they want to build their career. The beauty of management education is that it is an interdisciplinary subject thus creates scope for students from any background to opt for a management course and grow their career.
While opting for a management program whether in the undergraduate level or postgraduate level, student should focus for getting enrolled in a b-school. Do you think a b-school is always a better option than colleges/universities offering a wide array of programs?
As per my opinion, a B school is always a better option as it has a focused approach towards management education and are not constrained by norms and policies of a college or university running wide array of courses. B schools always provide an environment for learning and orients a student towards the corporate culture.
