    i have searched through various websites for information on the difference between bba and bbm courses andso far this is the only website that provided any valuable or useful information, so thankyou for that.

    however i just want to clarify one thing. are you sure that bbm offers the option to specialize in HR or finance?? As far as ive looked there is no website that mentions this. i thought the option to specialize come only when your doing your MBA.
    If so, can you tell me which all colleges offers this option? And which of those college would you recommend? (i was following the cambridge syllabus till now and just finished my grade 12 - level -exams last november.)
    thank you
