The common understanding is that BBA students cannot purse courses such as Company Secretary. However this is not true! If you are sincere and dedicated then the college extends support for you to go ahead and follow your passion. I was able to complete my BBA along with my CS course due to the support of the college.
It is generally thought that the academic extension to a BBA is a regular MBA. However it was at FBA (Formerly NRBBA) that the world of Mass Media and Communication was introduced to me.

Even before entrepreneurship became the buzzword, me and my friends used to talk about opening our own ventures. The training that we received at FBA (Formerly NRBBA) in many ways pivotal in our growth. One of the best parts of my association with my college is that I am invited to talk to my juniors. This helps create a wonderful network which transgresses batches.
Much before I was part of the National Award Winning movie Hellaro, I was keenly involved in the dance and drama related activities at FBA (Formerly NRBBA). Understanding the individual talents of students and then giving them a platform to nurture and grow is core to this college.
My leanings towards academics was very evident since I was in college. While my classmates were going towards corporates I was more inclined towards research in the academic field.

The shift from school to college is difficult, however at FBA (Formerly NRBBA) I was assisted at every step in this.

Generally colleges are divided into cliques of those who focus on studies, the sports champs and the extra-curricular teams. However this is not the case at FBA (Formerly NRBBA)! I was given opportunities to carry on my extra-curricular activities as part of the OC team along with being able to score high in my academic pursuits. This balanced approach of development is the key reason why I have been able to get calls from most of the prominent IIMs. The teaching is extra-mural and so is the learning.
We are given the freedom to head the clubs in a direction which we find apt. The supervision by the college is purely in the form of guidance and we are encouraged to use the management theories learnt in a practical way. Being able to manage the entire sports team, across all game forms, teaches you core lessons of leadership and management in an organic way.
I started off as a volunteer for the events at college. My seniors saw the potential I had in organizing events, from design to execution, and elected me to the OC team. My greatest learning happened when for three years in a row we organized the National Level Management Festival Vishleshan+ which became a national phenomenon.
There is always one of the other activity that you can be a part of at FBA (Formerly NRBBA)! A few of us got together to start the music club and the college supported us.

It is a wonderful experience.
Getting up on the stage a talking to a large crowd was something that I had never done, and it was a scary prospect. But being in management studies you cannot shy away from facing the crowd. This opportunity presented itself when I was given a chance to perform stand-up comedy within and outside the college. It really opens up never before known avenues!
