The course has been designed to bring about a holistic growth in the aspirant towards acquiring management skills.  The person becomes financially independent after completing BBA which gives confidence and lets the person develop strategic planning.

Hello Swati. The jobs market is dynamic. It is not correct for me to predict the future of the job market. However, you can always get in touch with alumni and understand the economy before entering your job.

I'm a little confused between BBA and Btech in agriculture. I started taking BBA class but just couldn't connect with it. I scored 96% in PCM. can you please suggest me which one is better for me. I want to become an entrepreneur in future.
