Aligarh Muslim University has always tried to provide the country with the best educational programs and nurture assets for the nation. Having been one of those remarkable institutions to which students look forward to enlighten themselves with adequate knowledge and skills; AMU has satisfied the goals of many aspirants.
But despite its endeavors, the university lacks some major courses which is the need of the time. With the evolution in society and development of the economy, the job setup has changed its demands remarkably. And AMU seems to catch those demands quite slowly.

The excellence is now not restricted to the hard work of the people but to how smartly and efficiently they can run their work. What extra skills they hold for the success of the companies remains the challenge. It would be wrong to say that AMU has not made any modifications and addition in the courses but still, there is some major lacking as per the needs of today’s time which is consequently decreasing the opportunities of students here and making them less competitive in the occupational settings.
Bachelors’ in Business Administration (AMU BBA) – This is one of the major courses for students interested in business and administration learning.
