    I am in 12th standard Commerce now, interested in bank job what is best for me to study BFM or BBA ? I will surely do MBA after graduation. please guide me. also point me the best institute to do BFM and BBA. in India. I am living in Mumbai. IIM Indore offering 5 years integrated course (BBA + MBA ) How good is it, please guide me.

    • Hello,
      Chandhi Vadher.
      If you are really interested in starting your career in the banking sector, we recommend you to take BFM. It is better because BBA/ BBM deals with administration subjects in management and BFM deals with Finance subjects of management. Banking is mainly based on finance, so choosing BFM will be a wise idea. The integrated course which you mentioned also a good one. choose the integrated 5-year course at IIM Indore or go for BFM. As from our personal opinion, we don’t recommend BBA/ BBM for you.
      Stay in touch with us for more news and information on education.
      Best of luck!
