Why Integrated MBA is the preferred option than doing MBA after BBA?

Management discipline is an infinite arena of various lucrative career options that draw thousands of aspirants every year. It not only maximizes your potential but also increases the possibilities for an outstanding career in the business world.  But a career in management needs to be thoroughly planned and the earlier you start better are your prospects. Integrated MBA (iMBA) is one such course offering a head start to young management aspirants. It is a five-year course for class 12 pass-out students who look forward to making a career in business management and entering the realm of modern business. On the other hand, BBA+ MBA is a program where a student goes for a graduation degree of three years and then further pursues a post-graduation degree of two years.

Why IMBA is better than BBA+MBA?

Pursuing an integrated MBA (iMBA) degree offers many benefits, besides giving your career an early start. Take a look:

Absence of Entrance Exams

The most important being, you do not need to go through the hassle of entrance examinations and college hunt twice. You enter an institute after your 12th and come out after five years with a post-graduate degree in management.  On the other hand, students who opt for BBA+MBA, have to prepare and undergo entrance tests for various colleges twice.

Perfectly-designed Syllabus

Another reason why you should choose an integrated MBA course over BBA+MBA is the accurately curated syllabus offered by most colleges. While going for BBA+MBA, the syllabus will be designed by different institutes and the chances of repetition of subjects are much higher. Integrated MBA course on the other hand will offer a more comprehensive syllabus, focusing on the various dominions of management from day one of your graduation. Unlike BBA+MBA, an integrated MBA course will offer you a much more extensive anthology of management subjects.   As a result, you will have a far-reaching exposure to the business world.

Diversified Knowledge Gain

Having studied the subjects for three years, students will have gained extensive knowledge and in-depth insight into the various verticals of management. This will help students make a much more informed choice about their specializations as compared to MBA where you are expected to make this choice after just a year of studying management. Thus before making a choice, that will have an ever-lasting impact on your career, you will have an opportunity to study all the different facets of management.

Am I eligible?

Any student looking forward to having a career in business management needs a certain set of skills and proficiency. A company opting for campus placement will expect the management students to have a well-rounded personality, a fitting attitude, and an appropriate knowledge of the business world. The integrated MBA program gives you five years to develop these proficiencies. Colleges can emphasize on the development of students at a very early age enabling students to develop managerial skills and competencies. As a result, a student appearing for an interview after integrated MBA program will have a higher scope of seizing that high-paying, lucrative job offer. While BBA+MBA will help you get a managerial job, integrated MBA will make you industry-ready in the true sense.


The corporate business world is a dynamic, ever-changing world and those who aspire to be a part of it have a lot to learn. Integrated MBA (iMBA) is an opportunity to give a head start to your management career. It makes you market-ready and also helps in cultivating the skills required to excel as a leader in managerial positions. It is a seamless course in continuation that’s well-planned and gives thorough practice to the students of every aspect of management.
