A lot of people have told me that a BBA degree is worthless without an MBA. Is it true. if yes why is it so?
There are always people ready to give opinions based on little information and more guesswork. You are advised to dismiss such opinions unless they are based on evidence from HR managers, recruiters or counsellors.
Each course of study has its own value. A BBA which is also sometimes called Bachelor of Business Studies (BBS) and Bachelor of Business Management (BBM) is an undergraduate programme in business management which provides a basic foundation for students who wish to get into management.
With a BBA you can get a job in any organisation, whether a bank, corporate organisation, insurance company and so on, wherever there is a need for general management professionals.
If you wish to improve your career propspects than an MBA is advised, as this is a management programme at a higher academic level, i.e. a Master’s or post-graduate level. For an MBA, you can do graduation in any subject.
