Hello There! Looking at your query, I want you to understand that your confusion is a very common one and it is really difficult to choose the future career path without proper guidance and advice. Therefore I am happy to see you approach CareerGuide for seeking clarification and solution to your career confusion. I am sure that the experts here will be able to guide you.


I am an Educationist and have been into career counselling for more than seven years for students of commerce / management / law / engineering. I have also been into teaching and also been writing on various topics including career management for more than ten years now in reputed newspapers and magazines all over India.


Whether to do a job after BBA or MBA or any other course is a very apt query and definitely a confusing one to choose from them. Always remember that if you feel you are confused to choose an option from hundreds, its best to find out your strengths, weaknesses, passion, liking, family responsibilities and to listen to your inner voice.

There are also methods and tools to ascertain all the above things which are inside you. One of the best and proven tools is of 'psychometric testing'. This test is available here on CareerGuide.com and can be done by your self at your home and convenience. Doing this test will give you great results about your attitude, strengths, weaknesses, liking, etc and then you can approach career counsellors for a one to one counselling in which you will be given the options which best suit to you. Always remember that if you wish to become successful in something, you should first love to do it, since when you like nad love what you do, that makes you excel and successful.

Since you have chosen BBA, after BBA the natural progression is for doing an MBA which is apt and right. Opting for a job after BBA will not give you good salary, good job profile, low end work and it will be of uncertain nature. Therefore I would not recommend you to join employment immediately after BBA. Today doing a good post graduation is important.

Apart from MBA, you can do courses in Hotel Management, Event Management, Law, etc. Since the options are many, it is recommended to have the psychometric test done.

Best Luck.

Hello Dear Aspirant,
Welcome to Careerguide.com

Thanks for visiting us and writing us your career query.

I think this is the question which lies in many students mind especially students who have been pursuing or have completed;whether to do a job or pursue higher studies.This is because there are job opportunities available for the management students right after completing BBA.

Management has been one of the demanding career nowadays. And many students have been aspiring to make their career and mark their identity in the field of Management. Its the field which is one of the prestigious field with high salary packages.

If you take up a job after BBA that will give you an work experience but i wont fetch you handsome salary package and the promotions won't be at that high phase as are provided to the person holding an masters degree in management.

I would suggest you can do a job for an year and gain a work experience and than apply for the Masters degree programm in management as per your interest . There are no. of courses available in management for the students courses like :- MBA having 250+ specialisations viz.marketing,Human Resource,Health care,Agriculture,IT etc. If you have an interest in Marketing than you can go for Masters in Marketing Management (MMM) and if you have an interest in Human Resource than you can opt for Masters in Personnel Management (MPM). While you can divert other fields like Mass communication, MBA in Design Management , Commerece,Arts,Fine Arts , Law etc. are also some of the options available.

Whichever career you wish to opt for make sure that you go with your interest field and if you find it confusing to choose a career path than you can take careerguide.com's career assessment which will help you to take decision for your career.

I hope you find this information relevant to your career query.

Feel free to get in touch again.

Wish you good luck thumbsup

Thank you
Warm regards,
Prathamesh K.

Dear Aspirant,

Thanks for writing to www.careerguide.com!

Career experts have answered your query very well so I won't repeat what did they say.

Well, as mentioned by career experts, I too recommend to do MBA after BBA. MBA from reputed institute would be useful. To get admission into top notch institutions, you need to crack CAT/MAT/XAT. Attempt to get above 99 percentile so that you can get into reputed institutiins. You need to choose specialization ( HR, marketing, finance etc.), which is very crucial.

If your economic condition requires you to take up a job then you can go for job in your preferred area of functions either in corporate or development sector. Worl experience will help you determine your area of interest for masters and choosing specialization in master's course. After considerable work experience ( two years) you can do MBA or other relevant post graduate course in your area of interest.

Best wishes for your career,
