Hello I am doing BBA-International business.Wanted to ask as to what I can do along with BBA-IB for better career options in future while I am completing my 3yrs undergraduation.
Hello Sakshi,Welcome to CareerGuide.com!!!Thanks for visiting and proposing your query.
Bachelor of Business Administration is one of the most demanding and popular undergraduate degree amongst the students in India.Its a degree program of three years divided in semester pattern. BBA Program is designed to give essential knowledge about management education;the program develops the students entrepreneurship and communication skills.
Management students play a very important role in the various companies in organising and managing the smooth functioning of the companies work. Earlier only MBA degree program was offered for the interested students who wished to make their career in management;but with the need and demand of this sector the management courses were introduced at bachelors level i.e BBA,BBM(IB) etc.
As you have been studying your BBA in IB you definitely have a good career options after pursuing your degree. But if you go with some parallel short term courses with BBA that will be an added feature to boom your career. You have many options to go for parallel courses.
As you have been doing BBA in IB you can go for a correspondence course in Import and Export which is of one year and which will give you an more insight about the Import and Export industry. You can complete this course from Export trade and training Institute,Mumbai. The best part of this course is that you have here educational visits to the ports and cargos and practicals,so you gain the practical knowledge about the Import and Export area.Website - www.ettintl.com.
While after completing your BBA (IB) you can also apply for your masters degree to IIFT,Delhi or can do PGDIB course or can go for an MBA with IB,Human Resourse,Marketing,Finance etc. as per your area of interest you can go for the MBA Specialisation.
Otherwise you also have an option to get into the professional courses like-CA,CS,ICWA,CFP,CFA etc. CFP is a course which can be completed in an year or one and half year as per your convenience and is also a demanding profession.
While you have an option of to get into Law- where you can study the subjects like International Economics or International Relations. Ypu can also get into Arts if you have interest.
So before going into any further career option consider your strengths,capabilities,abilities. If you are more confused than go for MERA CAREER GUIDE's Career Assessment Test that will help you to know your strengths,abilities and capabilities. You can get in touch with me again with your reports.

Warm Regards,Prathamesh K.
I ma very happy to know your inclination to learn something more alongside your under graduation and add value to your profile. Very few students think like this.
I would suggest that if you are interested in international business, then an MBA after your graduation is a must.
While doing your under graduation there are three things which you can do. These three things are UTMOST important as far as your employability in future is concerned, since the industry today does not want paper degrees, but they need to see the actual skill you have in you so that you get employed in preference than others. Those three things are:
The above two are very weak in under graduates as per my years of experience.
I would not recommend you any course but these above are very very essential.

Impressive that you are not only thinking from career point of view but also how it will be fruitful if you do some ad on courses.
Anyways after BBA, pursuing an MBA is a must. Since BBA is a graduate course and will just give you an overview of the market. An in-depth study is a must.
Also as you have mentioned you pursuing BBA from an IB board, which definitely means a combination of subjects, so accordingly you can choose a course that will help you in future.
As such being a management graduate, mainly important is communication. So you can get yourself a crash course on communication and softskills, which can help you to pursue a career later into Training and development.
Everyone these days looks out for faster and easier means of completing work. Nothing better than computers. I am sure, basics of computers you are well versed, but a course related to graphics or coral, can be added benefit while you opt for presentation.At the same time, you could pt for a course into SAP technologies, which is more related to encoding and decoding of data.
As far as any other professional courses are concerned, market is pretty volatile. It is like the need of the hour. So why unnecessarily waste time and energy. Rather, get into a job, learn and experience the market and whatever is the demand at that point of time, you can pursue the course accordingly.
Wish you good luck....
