Hello friend,
As far as commerce is concerned in class 12, the priority lies in getting into a quick job and earning lot of money. Commerce students feel that they should take up such a course that can actually help them make a career. This is the reason that BBA students tops the list for many students.

Most of the students get into commerce stream with no understanding of what it involves. However, if management is the ultimate goal, though both BBA as well as B.Com will lead to MBA, but one needs to give it a serious as to what subject to graduate in even if the ultimate goal is MBA.
It is true that both BBA and B.Com lead to MBA. However, while B.Com can lead to a wide array of post graduate specializations, a BBA degree on the other hand, can only lead to MBA.

The Bachelor of Commerce is designed to enhance the ability to learn as the students study variety of subjects; Accountancy, Business Administration, Finance, Economics, and Industrial Policies. This course equips one with the analytical, communication and problem solving skills to effectively identify issues, source information and to find efficient and practical solutions.

Unorganised Sector

After B.Com the students can avail exciting and diverse post graduate opportunities like MBA, Law, International Studies, Designing / Merchandising, MBE, M.Com, Finance, Economics etc, which will set them apart from the crowd and prepare them for success in the global market place. The industry takes them at par with the students having professional degrees like BBA, Hotel Management etc. All most all the universities and colleges in India offer B.Com degree, therefore, chances of getting into the course is higher.
Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) on the other hand, is a professional course and is offered at few universities /institutes. Choosing the right institute is key to landing up in a good job. The BBA course is tailored in consultation with representatives from leading organizations, ensuring that you graduate with an industry relevant degree. Students get practical experience, read assigned materials, attend seminars and prepare an internship report.
Students are also encouraged to attend leadership training, workshops and conferences; including, but not limited to, public speaking, group dynamics and problem solving and evaluating techniques. These skills not only help to fetch a good job but also the students remain at an edge over others while studying MBA. After BBA the students can get into marketing, human resources, general management and finance etc.
Now choice is yours.....Good Luck.

Hello My Dear Career Aspirant,


This is a very common confusion students these days face since courses like BBA, BBM, BMS, have been introduced in recent years by colleges and universities across India. This has happened typically and majorly due to the MBA wave in the market.

I am glad that you approached CareerGuide.com for seeking guidance and clarification for your apt and genuine query. I am sure that the experts here have given you the advice.


Choosing between BCom which is a traditional and proven course across India and related graduation courses like BBA, etc. is not actually tough.

I would like to surely tell you that any course you choose among [BBA, BCom, BBM, BMS]

2, it does not affect your job or post graduation at all. Ultimately all those courses are related to one another.


However the reason behind introducing the courses like BBA, BBM, etc. was initially to get the students right in their first year of senior college close to the business administration and business management world.

BCom is still a proven and a strong foundation course and its value has not diminished at all although courses like BBA have been introduced.

However I would like to tell you that as far as Maharashtra state is concerned, the BBA course has been closing down in many colleges, since the preception that doing BBA helps more in studying for MBA was proved to be false. Many colleges here have stopped opening admissions for BBA courses.

My suggestion:

I would like to personally suggest you to choose BCom for your graduation. BCom is a very strong fundamental course and its really a stepping stone for your future post graduation or job.

BBA students seem to be less aware than BCom students is my observation in my last seven years of career counselling.

I would say that its always better especially in the under graduate level to choose a course which is proven and looking at the closure of BBA courses all over India this proves that BCom is the preferred choice. With BCom apart from MBA, you can be better equipped for other professional courses like Chartered Accountancy, Cost Accountancy, Law, etc.
