Asked by Anonymous - Jul 28, 2023Hindi
My son is now in Class XII Commerce in a CBSE school. He has an ambition of doing MBA from a good Management School. He got 90% in class X of CBSE. Please advise, from career perspective, if he should pursue for B Com or BBA course after his completing the Class XII exam . Please advise the Entrance tests he should pursue to get admission into Institute of repute for the courses , i.e. B COM and BBA. Regards.
Ans: Choosing between B.Com and BBA depends on your son's interests and long-term career goals. Both courses can lead to a successful career in business and management, but they have different approaches and specializations.

B.Com is a more traditional and broader course that focuses on various aspects of commerce and finance. It covers subjects like accounting, economics, taxation, finance, marketing, and business law. It provides a strong foundation in accounting and finance, making it suitable for those interested in pursuing careers in fields like chartered accountancy, banking, finance, or tax consultancy.

BBA is a management-oriented course that focuses on the principles and practices of business management. It covers subjects like marketing, human resources, operations management, organizational behavior, and entrepreneurship.

If your son is specifically interested in management and wants to develop a deeper understanding of management principles right from the undergraduate level, BBA could be a better choice.

As for entrance tests for reputable institutes, here are some of the common entrance exams for BBA/MBA courses:
1. Common Entrance Test (CET): Many states in India conduct their own CET for admission to BBA/MBA programs in state universities and colleges.
2. All India Management Association Undergraduate Aptitude Test (AIMA UGAT): This exam is for admission to various undergraduate programs like BBA, BCA, Integrated MBA, etc.
3. Symbiosis Entrance Test (SET): Conducted by Symbiosis International University, SET is the entrance test for various undergraduate programs, including BBA.
4. Indraprastha University Common Entrance Test (IPU CET): Conducted by Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, this exam is for admission to various undergraduate courses, including BBA.
