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!
