How does a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program help students become industry-ready? What are the skills that give BBA graduates an edge over others? Dr Vaidyanathan Jayaraman (Dean – Undergraduate Programs, SP Jain School of Global Management) shares how BBA opens up a variety of career paths for students in his article published in Shiksha, a leading education portal.
“A BBA degree trains students for traditional as well as non-traditional sectors, thereby opening up career paths in areas of auditing, banking, communications, hospitality, media and public relations, public sector, defence, and risk management, among others. A career in consultancy is also a popular choice among recent graduates. The program is greatly beneficial for those who wish to continue with their education and obtain a post-graduate degree, as it acts as a stepping stone for an MBA degree,” writes Dr Jayaraman.
