Increasing competition and professionalism in each sphere of business has created huge demand for business managers, which, in turn, has opened up multiple career options for them.

Careers in Business Management

India’s economic liberalization policy, coupled with presence of large numbers of MNCs, has created a vast change in the employment pattern. Quest for increasing profits and reducing overhead costs, the consequent results of fierce global competition, has raised the demand for professionals in each and every sphere of business. As such, business management is, today, one of the fastest growing professional courses and sought-after career options. It has opened up limitless opportunities in diverse fields with promises of assured rewards in the form of good remuneration, status, and scope for professional and personal growth.

Course Details
India has a chain of prestigious and leading institutions offering undergraduate (BBA/BBM/BBS/BMS), post graduate (MBA), and part-time courses in business management. BBA is a three-year program that can be pursued after 10+2, while an MBA is a two-year course which can be taken up after graduation, or an equivalent degree. Admission into these courses is held on the basis of a written test, followed by group discussion and personal interview. Separate tests are conducted by different institutes. Business management allows students to take up various specialized fields, like finance, sales and marketing, human resources, personnel management, operations, international business, and retail and rural management.

Career Prospects
Business managers have multiple career options in both public and private sectors. Banks, financial institutions, corporate houses, government departments, and industries are prime recruiters of business managers.
