Careers and Higher Education Options for BBA Graduates

BBA, better known as Bachelor of Business Administration, is a 4-year program that includes business administration, commerce, and general business courses in its curriculum. If you are a BBA degree holder or will soon be graduating as one, it would be best if you know what your career options are once you enter the workforce. On the other hand, if you are thinking of pursuing higher education right after graduation, you could also do so.

A BBA degree prepares you for bright career opportunities because upon completion of your program, you will already know and understand concepts such as marketing, accountancy, financial management, economic principles, and organizational management. Essentially, it will prepare you for a career in business. However, for those who want to pursue higher education, the BBA program is also a good foundation for students to have because it equips them with the necessary knowledge and skills of managing business functions and organizations.

Career Options for BBA Graduates

If you are a BBA graduate, you can seek employment from different companies that offer business management and sales positions. You can also work as a project planner, a production supervisor, and a business administrator. Usually, BBA graduates apply in companies that engage in the business of manufacturing, construction, retail, and finance. They can also apply for various government agencies.

Higher Education for BBA Graduates

For majority of BBA graduates who have decided to pursue higher studies, they usually get a Masters program, such as Master of Business of Administration (MBA), Master of Science in Computer Science, Master of Computer Applications (MCA) or perhaps attend law school. You can also opt to get a doctorate degree afterwards.

As a BBA graduate, you basically hold the “golden ticket” because you can apply for just about any business-related job that you want and be highly qualified for the position. With this degree, you become highly employable, so to speak.
