With the admission season about to begin many of the students must be preparing for various entrance exams or some of them might be still confused as which career to follow after completing their schooling. Of Course, this time is scary, exciting and full of confusion and other emotions that make your stomach turn. This phase is crucial for future aspects. Everyone needs assistance and guidance while making a call about their careers, and every bit of help is appreciated. In case you want to pursue something in the field of commerce and are confused about choosing between BBA (Bachelors of Business Administration) or B.Com (Bachelors of Commerce), read the article ahead.
Both the course programmes, BBA and BCom, expose you as a student to different curriculums which lead to a variety of career avenues for you to pursue. The courses come with their own individual courses and curriculum as well. The option you choose will depend entirely on what you are inclined towards and what your preferences are, along with your aptitude. The programmes are both three years long.
What Course Should You Pursue, BBA or B.Com?
The people who finish and graduate with a BCom degree are usually the ones who become financial number crunchers and they stay in the finance sector. Even if they choose to pursue an MBA after their undergraduate degree, they choose finance in their area of specialization. Besides an MBA, BCom graduates also have the option to pursue their postgraduate degree in M.Com, CA, or ICWA.
Once they are done with their studies, BCom graduates can also take up working in the accounts department of different companies across industries, or they can also choose to work at banks or other financial and tax consultancies.
When it comes to pursuing a degree in BBA, it is considered to be a more comprehensive course. The main objective for this is to better equip the students who are enrolled in the programme with other aspects of business, which are more than just finance-based such as Human Resource, Marketing, Operations, Supply Chain Management, Systems and more. As a graduate, you are now equipped with requisite managerial skills.
When you are a BBA graduate, you can specialize in finance or any other stream as well, which can include Productions, Materials Management, HR, Operations, and Marketing.

Hi Sb !
Actually none of these is good colleges. But if you only want join from any of these colleges, then GIBS would be nice.
Let's talk about it
An average place to study, unique infrastructure. According to the reviews which are on internet it seems that it is a very good college to join.
GIBS Business School has a "Placement Panel" whose head is Mrs. Uzma Nayeem (Renowned Image Consultant) and the members of the panels are all the CEOs of companies in bangalore. GIBS even has a placement advisory board working for the national and international placements. Every Saturday they have a Guest Lecture from one the members of the panel and a session from Mrs. Uzma Nayeem to shape up your personalities into corporate person. So, placements are sure provided student actively participates and attends all the sessions arranged for the placements by the panel.
Average:- 6 - 8 lakhs
Highest:- 11.30 lakhs
I found GIBS Business School in the Internet. Beautiful infrastructure, with all world class amenities. They have an Unique TRIO combination of MBA + PGPM along with SAP, SIX SIGMA and Project Management Program (one of the most required and appreciated certification world wide) and many more value added courses and certifications.
Please upvote if this was helpful to you.
Hope this helps.
