In a significant development, educational institutions are battling to safeguard Bachelor of Management Science (BBA, BMS) and Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA) courses from falling under the jurisdiction of the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE).

These courses, which were granted professional status by the AICTE, now face the prospect of being included under traditional commerce and science degree programs at the university level.
Previously, these courses operated under AICTE’s oversight, entailing centralized admissions through the State Common Entrance Examination Board.
Now, institutes offering these programs must adhere to AICTE norms, necessitating infrastructure upgrades, resulting in potential fee hikes. Consequently, some educational institutions have sought legal recourse against this decision.
However, there’s a concerted effort to find alternatives to AICTE oversight at the technical level. One proposed solution involves renaming the courses at the university level and integrating them into commerce and science degrees. For instance, BBA could become BCom Business Administration, while BCA might transition to BCom Computer Application. Even specialized programs like BBA in Computer Application (BBA CA) and BBA in International Business (BBA IB) could be rebranded as BCom Computer Application and BCom IB, respectively.
This shift not only aims to circumvent AICTE regulations but also to mitigate potential financial burdens on educational institutions and students.
By aligning these courses with traditional degree programs, institutes hope to preserve their autonomy and streamline administrative processes. Nevertheless, the outcome remains uncertain, with ongoing debates and legal battles shaping the future of these courses in the Indian educational landscape.
