It shall be an annoyance to young BBA graduates who prospectively pursue a Master degree.  The prima facie difference from the definition of word, an MBA is a master degree of business administration, and a BBA is a bachelor: It seems shall be a different and distinct levels of education. However, the study courses, such as Accounting, Finance, Marketing, are almost as same as the courses the students study in BBA program. So, a general question may be arisen, Why MBA? 

here are some compares and contrasts provide for your concerns or interests.


The Education Structure:

The BBA is a four-year undergraduate degree that typically requires 120 credits for completion, whereas the MBA is usually much shorter, 30 to 60 credits typically, an advanced degree that you earn after completing a bachelor’s degree. 

BBA coursework typically includes basic lectures where students listen to professors share their knowledge and experiences. While student participation is common, it is not a major component of classes in most cases. In an MBA, student participation in the learning environment is critical. Many MBA classrooms operate as discussion forums where professors serve more as facilitators and mentors. This is to take advantage of the widespread professional experiences common to MBA students who usually work during or before attending graduate school.


MBA just an extension of BBA?

MBA is distinct program from Master Degrees, any graduates can enroll or seek for it, despite graduates graduated from Science or Art school. It means even a doctor, engineer, teacher, designer or lawyer can do MBA!!

So, you don’t have to pursue BA for the first degree if you have different study interests other than business. You may choose your interested concentration in undergraduate study in order to build up personal career skills for advantages, and pursue MBA later to enhance your business skills.  The suggestion give you several benefits to yourself: 1. You can choose your favor work in your favor position; 2. You have more field opportunities than graduates who possesses BBA and MBA; 3. Your individual skill, wide sight, and unique experiences make you to become more competitive than BBA and MBA graduates who working with you in the same field.


Leadership and Managerial skills Oriental

Another major distinction between the study of BBA and MBA is experiences of team work. BBA courses more focus on individual assignment, project and test work, with occasional group projects mixed in, and MBA heightened emphasis on workplace collaboration common at the professional level: team collaboration.  MBA courses usually not require their students to learn or understand all theoretical knowledge in business administration, but requests to study the leadership and managerial skills from diverse positions and subjects in order to fulfill the MBA graduation requirements.


Courses and Credits Compliance

It is fact that BBA graduates have their own advantages for MBA pursuit.  In general, BBA student already possessed a business foundation knowledge, so that they may logically take shorter to get MBA than student with BS, BA, LLB or BM. For instance, prospective candidates of MBA program from other fields or areas are probably required to take some fundamental business courses or have certain business knowledge before enter into MBA school, and BBA graduates may skip that part. 



Some jobs in business require a minimum of a bachelor’s degree, while higher-level business management jobs sometimes require an MBA. Also, some professionals with MBAs take advantage of opportunities to teach at local colleges and universities that only come with advanced degrees.  In its 2011 placement data, the University of Texas McCombs School of Business showed BBA graduates earning average salaries of $54,151. The average salaries for its 2012 MBA graduates were reported at more than $107,000 in exit interviews.
