In fact, a BBA programme is a perfect fit because it meets the high demand for managerial roles across various industries.
Manav Rachna Educational Institutions (MREI) offers several management and business programmes at both the postgraduate and undergraduate level, which aim to produce industry-ready students through professional education.
The Faculty of Business Studies (FCBS) under Manav Rachna International University offers multiple programmes, including BBA (General), BBA (Banking and Financial Markets), and BBA (Global - International Business), which are as sought-after as they are cutting-edge. At Manav Rachna University (MRU), students also have the option of taking the BBA (Finance & Accounts) course, which is offered as an integrated programme with Chartered Management Accountants, USA (CMA), while the programme itself is endorsed by the Institute of Management Accountants, USA.

A course in BBA (Health Care Management) is also available at the institute, which is offered in association with Cygnus Hospitals.
While the BBA (General) programme enables students to understand the business environment, along with marketing, finance, and quantitative analysis, the BBA (Banking and Financial Markets) provides students a fascinating avenue for exploring the banking world. The course is run with inputs from ICICI Direct, an educational vertical of ICICI and a leading knowledge hub in the field of banking, derivatives, bond and stock market, and international financial management.
BBA (International Business) at MREI takes business studies to a whole new level, by training students in the global aspects of various business operations, so that they can work well in companies with international operations. The programme is conducted in collaboration with Auckland Institute of Studies (AIS), New Zealand, which provides curriculum and accreditation support.
