BBA curriculum lacks efficacy

Dear Sir

We as finance major students who have almost completed most of our major courses often wonder how well designed our course curriculum is for this modern day. Universities are bound to follow the Courses designed & approved by the UGC. As a result, we get to study very limited number of major courses of finance which is very insufficient for this modern day where emergence of more digitalized world is hinting at a comprehensive curriculum consisting mostly technical skills and applied knowledge.

At present the BBA curriculum has 120 credit hours and among that only 18 credits are destined for the major courses. A good portion of the courses amounting to 36 credits includes GED (General Education Courses) courses. Subjects (Chemistry, Physics, Sociology, Political science, History, 3 science labs) that hold little or no importance specially for a finance major student or a business administration student so to say. Had these courses been replaced by more finance courses or other software-IT based courses like Excel, R, Python, SQL, JAVA etc it would have been more fruitful for the students.

Co-Curricular activities should involve hosting multiple real world business case competitions and faculty members should actively endorse it more frequently. For all those things are to be implemented both the UGC & the University administration should work cooperatively for the betterment of the students and the society as well.
