Before we address the question, “What does it mean when it is said that BBA is a professional course?” we need to look closely at the meaning of two terms BBA and ‘Professional course’.

BBA (Bachelor in Business Administration)

Bachelor in Business Administration is a course that earns the student a graduation degree with ample prelude of knowledge about business, finance, management. To take up BBA, it is advised that a student has a good hold over Economics and Commerce. However, that is no compulsion, of course.

Professional Course

Professional Course typically means the kind of course which can equip you to be hired for a specific and full time, decent paying jobs in the field of your study. It trains you directly for employment and not necessarily for academic excellence. So, basically, any course which awards you a degree to establish yourself in the market is a professional course. While there are some popular professional courses, BBA is perhaps the most popular of these.

So, what does it mean when it is said that BBA is a professional course? It means that a graduate with the degree of BBA can directly be employed without the further need of post-graduation like in so many other cases. It also means that someone with a BBA degree would be able to start working and earning professionally earlier than most of his/her batch mates. But, is it advised?  That depends solely on the graduate. Of course, it is wiser to follow up a Post-graduation course for enhanced skills and chances at a better paying job. But, this is no compulsion.

Now that the question has been answered let’s take up a few other relevant questions.

 

What makes BBA a professional course?

The first question is what makes BBA a professional course. To answer this we need to look at the course that is studied during BBA.

 

 

During BBA, a student is given an overview of business practicals and processes, to develop communication skills, quantitative reasoning skills, and business analysis skills. The student is also made to understand the role of economics in a global marketplace and acquire significant knowledge about the issues prevailing in business at the global level. This said, the course of BBA is made to study business theory, business law and ethics, economics, fundamentals about entrepreneurship, E- Business, and project management. Thus, the course is highly focused on business and economy. This will naturally train the student at dealing specifically with matters of business efficiently. Since a market is a must for all economies to exist and flourish,

BBA with the field of its study as discussed will always enable the graduate to get hired without a Post-Graduation degree.

The next question is - What is the role that a BBA graduate is hired for? And this question stands right beside our original one- What does it mean when it is said that BBA is a professional course?

The answer to this is however not as varied as it quite obviously would be with a Post-Graduation degree. Therefore, the roles for a BBA graduate are those of-

  • Operation Manager

The duties of this officer are simple and although depend largely on the organization. The duties of a person hired for this role are to smoothly maintain the operations of the office by supervising, hiring, training other employees, monitoring and analyzing processes and formulating strategies to increase productivity.

  • Information Security Officer-

The duties that come with this role are again seemingly simple. The Officer is supposed to formulate strategies and protect visions and policies of the firm from encroachment and piracy.

  • Sales Manager

The Sales Manager heads the team of sales employees. They form sales policies, quotas, goals, and plans. The training of Sales employees is their task to carry out properly. They assign sales territories and are also responsible for hiring and firing from their teams.

  • Loss Prevention Manager

The job that these employees shoulder is to find ways to maintain the safety and position of the form by reducing, minimizing and removing the threat of losses. Their primary job function, therefore, is to come up with ways to prevent the loss of the organization’s merchandise.

  • Cost Estimator

The job profile of this role includes calculating the cost that will be incurred by an organization for production and manufacture of goods which includes estimation of cost for land and labor. While cost estimators can be specialized in estimating the cost of a particular commodity or industry, the specialization isn’t a necessity.

There, you have it. We have successfully answered your question, “ What does it mean when it is said that BBA is a Professional course?” While BBA in itself enables the graduate to get hired and earn at a regular, well-paying job of their own field of study, the salary of a candidate with PG would be higher. Nevertheless, the salary of a BBA graduate can range from 2 lacs to 8 lacs per year.
