Q2. How to choose between BMS and BBA(FIA)?

Ans. Choosing between BMS and BBA(FIA)


To answer the fundamental question of choosing between BMS and BFIA, there are a lot of smaller questions that one needs to address. Let’s explore the most prominent ones:

“What is the difference in the career options that I can explore after BMS and BFIA?” Both BMS and BBA(FIA) are at an equal footing in terms of placements or higher education. Employers and institutions treat both programs alike and SSCBS alumni from both the programs 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 programs are similar, then what is different?” It is the course structure and syllabus and level of specialization. For the first two years, BMS focuses equally on all areas of business such as marketing, finance, human resource management and global business management and then gives you an option to specialize in one of these in the third year. For BBA(FIA), the course is designed to help you specialize in finance from the first year itself.

So, if you’re unsure about your specific interest area, BMS is the way to go, where the first two years offer you an exploratory journey into various alternative specialization fields in management followed by a chance to strengthen your skills in one of those.

“When outcomes are the same and you can still specialize in finance through BMS, why take BBA(FIA) at all?” The answer to this question lies in the difference in the level of finance that you’d 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, Financial Econometrics in detail. 

“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 this stage but there’re definitely some specific interest areas that you can track. If you love or understand numbers, economics, statistics or like to track or think about the mechanics of stock markets and business news, BBA(FIA) might be the right course for you.

“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 alumni who’ve done the same and are quite happy with where they are. So, there’s always a possibility of exploring your career interests beyond core finance even after BBA(FIA).
