BBA – Entrance Examinations, Courses & Colleges

Business management is an area universal to any industry as it includes planning, organizing and implementing. Therefore, to meet the increasing demand for Management professionals, more and more educational institutions are offering various courses in the field of business and management studies, both at the undergraduate and post graduate levels, that will skill up young aspirants to become successful in their career.

As management is an interdisciplinary field and includes subjects like economics, mathematics, psychology, sociology, law and more, most colleges in India do not require students to have studied specific subjects in class 12, though a strong foundation in English and Math is desirable. However, each institution has its own eligibility and selection criteria for admission that you must be aware of.

Here’s a list of entrance exams, courses and colleges that you can explore.
