High BMM Cut offs makes it an off limit course for masses!

Posted on 19 June 2010 by BMMBoxer

Some Number Crunching

Mumbai can accommodate only 3000+ odd students for Bachelor of Mass Media in approx 50 colleges.

Though the number of applicants is assumed to be more than 50,000.

Xavier’s BMM Department did not even a second list for BMM students…The quota of 60 students has already been taken by toppers and rankers.

All the top colleges have just 5-6 BMM seats vacant in the open category.

June 22 will be the last hope for all the students as the last list will be put up.


Not a long time ago, BMM (Bachelor of Mass Media) and BMS (Bachelor of Management Studies) were considered as alternate options for Commerce students. The courses looked and sounded cooler than the usual Bcom route. But, times have changed and so have the perceptions. These decade old courses have now become top priority for students, not only in Commerce, but also in Arts and Science. Apart from these, the decision to scrap the entrance exams has affected student’s big time.

What has made Bachelor of Mass Media one of the most popular courses? Here are some of things that have got it in the limelight:

• Course Flow: Practical + Theory Approach makes it a hit.

• Course Structure: The course is divided into 6 semesters with new subjects each semester. Thus, teaching more than 30+ subjects in a time span of three years. Subjects are related to mass media and give the students an insight into the Media Industry.

• Faculty: A mix of In-house and Visiting faculty from the industry strikes a connection and makes the students well connected to the industry.

• Projects: Not to forget the amazing project work done during the three years. It really raises the bar as far as creativity and technology is concerned.

BMMBox Viewpoint

We all know how good it feels to actually get admissions into a top college that you always wanted to go to, but due to the limited number of seats in each college, this may not happen for now. BUT, don’t lose hope and read ahead:

• Apply and Opt for a college close to your residence, so you get more time to concentrate on your projects and have more fun :-)

• Study well in your first year and you always stand a chance to change your college in the second year.

• You can study in any college and still enjoy BMM by being a part of all the BMM festivals that happen across the city :-)

Everything you need to know about BMM

Posted on 23 December 2009 by BMMBoxer

Yehi hai right choice, baby

So you’ve just passed out of 12th or awaiting your results and have plenty of options in front of you. Apart from the popular career choices in medical and engineering, professional courses are finally being recognized by parents as well as students. Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS), Bachelor of Mass Media (BMM), Bachelor in Banking and Insurance (BBI) and Bachelor in Finance and Accounts (BFA) are some of them.

What makes these niche courses a hit is that they break the popular myth of turning every individual into a doctor or an engineer. The courses expand the horizon for students and help them explore the world of banking, business and mass media.

While most of the students assume these courses to be an alternate for Bcom, but the fact remains these courses offer you much more than a usual course and prepare you for a path breaking career.

Thinking BMM?

It’s not rocket science; all you need to do is identify your interests or dislikes . For Instance: If you’re good at math and have an inclination towards accounts/finance, BBI or BFA would be a suitable option for you.

Since, we’re talking about BMM, here’s a checklist. We spill the beans on what it takes to be a BMMite.

Believe it or not, you know your a hardcore BMM student when..

1. You’re a PG in your own house.

2. You wake up 10 minutes before lecture. Look at the clock. And go back to sleep.

3. Running away from home (in the name of projects) doesn’t seem like a lie anymore!

BMM, it is.

Bachelor of Mass Media (BMM) is one of the few niche courses offered by University of Mumbai. It is a three year full time degree program which offers students a glance in the mass media industry. It was initiated in the year 2000-2001. Within three years, the course introduces students to 36 different subjects related to the media industry. A mix of theoretical concepts and implementation of them in placements and practical projects makes the course a hit among the youth.

In the third year, students need to specialize in either Advertising or Journalism. The choice made by individuals reflects his/her interests and preferences, which are highlighted during the first two years of the course.

The course is currently offered in more in more than 50 colleges in Mumbai. Click here to check out the various colleges that offer BMM.

Eligibility: Earlier BMM students were selected on the basis of entrance tests conducted by each college. But as of now the criteria remains the percentage scored in your HSC exam. That’s right, creativity is fortunately or unfortunately rated on how high your score is. However, you need to score a minimum of 50% in your board exam to be eligible for this course.

So if you intend to do BMM from one of the top colleges, you need to first compete with the nerd in your college along with hundreds of nerds in the city.

Since your reading ahead, we thought we’ll zero down the top 5 BMM colleges in Mumbai * for you:

1. Jai Hind College
2. KC College
3. Xavier’s College
4. RD National College
5. NM College

(* The list is a compiled on various criteria like College performance in terms of results, participation in festivals, popularity, faculty, etc..)

You can opt out of a particular college in the second/third year and get admission in any of the top colleges, considering you score amazingly well in the first year of BMM.

Hope this helps you clear all your confusion regarding BMM. If any doubts, suggestions or feedback, comment below and we would surely get back to you.
