What is the difference between BBA and BMS? BMS is offered by University of Delhi through 6 colleges only: Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, Keshav Mahavidyalaya, Deen Dayal Upadhyay, College of Vocational Studies, Maharaja Agrasen College and B.R Ambedkar College and is highly regarded in industry circles. BMS is also offered by Mumbai University BBA is offered by IP University, Symbiosis, Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS), and others. The course structure is similar though course rigor varies amongst various institutes.

What is the difference between B.Com (Hons.) and BMS/ BBS/ BBA? B.Com (Hons.) is a very academic course with focus on academic vigor. BMS/ BBS/ BBA, on the other hand, is a professional course with focus not only on academics but also on practical application of what is learnt. A summer internship is an in-built part of the course which further helps make the students more professional and street smart. Being a professional course, it gives a lot of exposure to the students in terms of industry interaction, developing organizing skills, submitting project reports, delivering effective presentations, etc.

Is every entrance exam different? How many entrance exams under BBS/ BBA can I effectively study for? (Exam Pattern)? Surprisingly, if you prepare for one BMS exam, you can very well ace all the other exams since all have similar sections on: Quantitative Aptitude Reading Comprehension and Verbal Ability Logical and Analytical Reasoning General Awareness Business Aptitude However, if you want to take other entrance exams, the preparation would be slightly different, if not completely different. To know how it would be different, read on the next question. Since 2013, having mathematics in class 12th is not an eligibility criterion for BMS/BBA/BBS entrance exams. However, the BMS entrance paper does test you on higher math as well.  

How different is entrance preparation for different courses' papers? (For eg: BMS/ BBS/ BBA, LAW, BCA, Hotel Management, Mass Communication, etc) In all entrance examinations other than engineering, medicine and pilot courses, three sections are tested: logical and numerical ability, verbal ability and awareness. The awareness part has 2 aspects to it: general awareness and awareness about the course you are applying in for. Except the last part i.e. awareness specific to that particular course, other sections remain almost the same. So, approximately 75-80% of the preparation remains the same. However, this section being the most critical – as it gauges the candidate's inclination towards that course, does require specific effort as well. For a LAW entrance, the candidate needs to prepare for legal reasoning. Likewise for mass communication, it is media aptitude, for hotel management it is service sector aptitude. With major effort in preparation directed towards the overlapping subjects, it is easy to prepare for and take all these entrances.

What level of Mathematics aptitude is required to appear in these entrances? Mathematics aptitude is based on CBSE pattern up to XIIth class for most Management and BCA exams. For other courses such as Mass Communication, Hotel Management, Law, Mathematics up to class 10th is tested only. Math till class XIIth (Higher Math) though not an eligibility criterion for entrance exams is likely to be tested for various Management exams including BMS, IIM Indore etc. Please note that Mathematics is an imperative subject to have in order to appear for BCA.
