Ans. Choosing between BMS and BBA(FIA)
To answer the fundamental question of marking preferences between BMS and BBA(FIA), there are a lot of smaller questions that one needs to address to get us to the answer of our primary question. Let’s explore the most prominent ones:
“What is the difference in the career options that I can explore with BMS and BBA(FIA)?”
First things first, outcome wise, both BMS and BBA(FIA) are at an equal footing which means that whether we talk of placements or further higher education, employers and institutions treat both courses alike and SSCBS alums from both the courses have converted all kinds of opportunities in the past without being disadvantaged for choosing either of the courses.
“Given that the outcomes from both these courses are similar, then what is different?”
It is the course structure (and syllabus, of course). For the first two years, BMS focuses equally on all areas of business, such as marketing, finance, HR and global business management and then gives you an option to specialize into one of these in the third year. For BBA(FIA), the course helps you specialize in finance from year 1 all the way to year 3. So, if you’re someone who is unsure about their interest area right from the beginning, BMS is the way to go where the first two years offer you an exploratory journey followed by a chance to strengthen your bets in one of those.
“When outcomes are the same and you can still specialize with finance through BMS, why take BBA(FIA) at all?”
The answer to this frequent (yet underrated) question lies in the difference in the depth of finance that you would study in both the courses. While BMS keeps you covered with all basic-finance subjects, BBA(FIA) goes a step further in helping you explore the core-finance subjects like Derivatives, Financial Instruments and Markets, Strategic Corporate Finance, Management of Financial Institutions, Econometrics to name a few, which are not available to you if you study BMS. Further, if we ask the alums, all of these subjects go a long way in tightening your grip over finance. Probably that is why more BMS alums have been seen taking supplementary courses like CFA, FRM, CFP etc. from outside to bridge that learning gap in finance compared to their BBA(FIA) counterparts.
“How do I be sure of my interest in finance given that I am right out of school?”
There is no way to be sure of anything at that stage (or even at a later stage) but there are definitely some symptoms that you can track. If you love or understand numbers, economics, statistics, business studies or like to track or think about the mechanics of stock markets and business news including Mergers and Acquisitions, BBA(FIA) might be the right choice for you. Don’t worry, you needn’t display all of these symptoms to catch the BBA(FIA) flu, a few of them are enough for it. For all the others, it might be wise to experience a little bit of everything before discovering your niche with BMS.
“What if I take BBA(FIA) and don’t end up liking it, can I not come out of the field ever?”
Take a deep breath and rely on SSCBS to provide BBA(FIA) students with enough non-finance opportunities in case you want to switch amongst career options. You’d be happy to know that there’re a lot of alums who’ve done the same and are quite happy with where they are. So, there’s always a possibility of looking back and correcting your course, if need be.
