MBA right after 12th? Here are smart solutions

Management line is an excellent direction for students to proceed. The scope and opportunities associated with this field are immense. A good manager is always in demand. So, choosing this line as a profession won’t be a bad choice at all! MBA (Master of Business Administration) is the way that most folks approach, when it comes to building a career in Management sector.

Very Important: AICTE has ordered institutes offering 5 years long BBA MBA integrated course to stop giving admission to students from academic year 2016-17 onward. AICTE has effectively ordered institutes operating under its umbrella to stop offering this course! AICTE approved integrated BM/BAM/MAM courses have been shut down, thanks to AICTE’s ruling.


Students already studying these courses have been taken care by AICTE. Students who are already studying the course have few options available in front of them, thanks to AICTE. Students who are in the 4th or 5th year may complete the program and they will be awarded the dual degrees! Students who are in 1st or 2nd year may complete 3 years course and drop, they will be awarded BBA Degree!


However, new admissions won’t be entertained from 2016-17 academic year onward.


Few UGC approved institutes, whose academic program satisfies the guidelines set by UGC (for BBA MBA integrated course) are still offering this dual degree course. Such institutes are claiming that they remain unaffected by the AICTE ruling since their academic program is set as per the guidelines provided by the UGC!


Keeping these facts in mind, students are advised to enquire about the status of the institute and the validity of the course before taking admission!

Usually, it is after completing a graduation course that aspirants enroll for MBA programs in private and Government institutes. However, in the past two years, a change in this trend has been observed! Right after 12th standard, many students are taking up MBA!
