The Indian market continues to expand exponentially, requiring well-skilled individuals with business acumen and a global outlook. BBA and BA graduates who specialise in their domains are especially sought-after by private and public business behemoths.
Here’s looking at some of the four most valuable undergraduate business specialisations pursuant can consider:
BBA (Foreign Trade) – International Trade Negotiations
From business growth and financial benefits to production and human resource advantages, foreign trade is a constantly growing domain. Defined by transactions between two or more countries, globalisation has led to the need for professionals with a core understanding of the subject and a global outlook.
Recognising this demand for skilled individuals, UPES School of Business offers a specialisation in International Trade Negotiations to BBA students. The 3-year course provides students with an understanding of international trade negotiations and their relevance in the global business environment.
The program also equips them with the latest developments in foreign trade and the ability to apply that knowledge in practical situations. Pursuing this specialisation can open career prospects such as International Marketing Manager, Market Research Executive, Relationship Manager, Foreign Trade Analyst, Business Development Manager, Foreign Trade Manager, and a lot more.
BBA (Foreign Trade) – Regional Economic Integration
Divisions between countries caused by geography, policies, politics, and infrastructure can often impair economic growth. Economic integration is crucial in overcoming these impediments to facilitate the flow of goods, services, trade, capital, energy, and ideas. A specialisation in Regional Economic Integration offered by UPES School of Business can open doors in trade, investments, macroeconomic and financial policies.
Spread across six semesters, this course gives students in-depth knowledge of FTAs (Free Trade Agreements), PTAs (Preferential Trade Agreements), Associations, Common Market, Customs, Economic and Political Unions. This also gives pursuing students the opportunity to choose from various career options, including Global Trade Manager, Export Manager, Foreign Trade and Purchasing Specialist, Foreign Trade Analyst, and many more.
BA (Public Policy) – Human Development
The realm of public policy is vast – regulatory measures, courses of action, governing laws and priorities of the government. All of this, directly and indirectly, affects human resource development in terms of health, trade, business, creation of opportunities, and more.
UPES School of Business realises the need for professionals who have a core understanding of the subject. Towards the same, it offers a Public Policy specialisation in Human Development. The 3-year course allows students to understand the implementation of governmental policy that serves the population, the workings of political activity, and the process of developing public programs for the society. Moreover, the program provides a theoretical underpinning, conceptual and analytical tools, fundamentals, and ideological dynamics.
BA (Public Policy) – Public Administration
Public Policies are strategies adopted by governments and organisations to guide their functioning. They happen to be at the core of national defence, education, health, and agriculture to solve societal issues. For formulating, implementing, and evaluating these policies, public administrators step in to oversee the same.
Considering how this affects the functioning of nations and how they interact with each other, UPES offers a Public Policy specialisation in Public Administration. The course provides a background for those interested in pursuing careers in governmental agencies, non-governmental organisations, management in hospitals or public health institutions, consulting in private firms, school boards, and human resources. The program makes students eligible for reputed private organisations and gives them a better chance to qualify for the Indian Civil Services exams.
Under BBA and BA programs, there are several specialisations beyond the above that students can consider to aid economic growth and facilitate business. As unconventional career paths mushroom and the demand for skilled professionals with business acumen continues to see a surge, the UPES School of Business is continuously evolving its curriculum. It is also expanding its range of industry tie-ups and offering a multidisciplinary and practical learning approach to ensure that every graduate succeeds in their chosen field.
