BBA Guide: Full Form, Colleges and Admission Requirements

BBA Full Form: BBA is the abbreviated/short form of the Bachelor of Business Administration degree course. In India, BBA is mostly of 3 years duration (full-time). However, students from different backgrounds i.e. studied subjects other than business studies, accountancy, and economics can pursue this course but in general, it is believed to be the best suitable professional degree course after completing schooling with commerce subjects i.e. studied economics, accountancy, and business studies as a core part of the studies at the senior-secondary (12th) level studies; it is easier for a student with commerce background to understand better, the terminology used and concepts being studied in the BBA course.
