If you are interested in Business education, go for it. 

Dr. Mohammad Ashraf Ali

Go by ur interest and excel in it.

This is very important that You select field of your interest , if you have trend in business study then you should go for BBA. Regarding scope of both mention fields, it’s hard to make comparison as medical related profession is ever demanding with respect to job market. one advantage of Pharma education is that you can have more open ended opportunities even after B.Pharma Degree but in case of BBA market is so saturated & its mandatory to do minimum MBA or M.Com to make room in current job market.

While making your decision also keep in mind that after BBA there are more choices & options for further study in business as well in commerce or even in fine arts but once you will be associated with Pharma , the only choice will be same industry.

 So you need to be more analytic.

 Best of Luck

More than scope you should be concerned where your aptitude is. If you just go in a field because of scope you might not give it your 100%. 

So choose a profession where you dont fee like working, but enjoying as you enjoy in a field where you heart and mind are on the same lines.



Thanks for your query, as per medical students you have few options that include 



Pharm D, 

Masters in Bio Chemistry or Micro biology or other science fields 

BBA in hospital management / MBA in Hospital Management

Various diploma for para medical staff, lab technicians etc. 

Courses for Pharma sales 

 There is NO one line answer which I can give you, I will appreciate if you call me and discuss over phone.

Both has own scope it depends on you what you liked in your interest

Engr. Ali Soomro

Thank you for your query.

As you have mentioned in your interest that you are not willing to do medical studies, then go for BBA.

As doing D.Pharm, it is also related to medical studies, where you will learn much more regarding medical education.

You have 2 options, if you are interested in BBA then go directly for it from a reputable and recognized university/institute or you can also do BS in IT or Computers? Its upto you..

Don’t be confuse, if you have interest in BBA then good luck, move on with full groom and passion.

Good Luck :)  Cheers

You should go for BBA, since you are not interested in medical.

Thanks for your quarry.
Better would have been, if you would have shared your Matric and followed by scores.
Anyhow, D Pharmacy has a greater and attractive scope as compared to BBA.
I suggest you to go ahead for D Pharm.
Wish you good luck.

It’s totally depends upon your interests, bust as you are doing inter from pre medical then I’ll suggest to go for MBBS, if you can’t get admission then Pharm D should be the second option.  If you thing that you are a business minded person then go for BBA.


Moazzam Nizami

Nice to hear about your endeavors.

It totally depend upon your interest. Every field has its own charm.
But realizing the job scenario in Pakistan…………….Already lot of Medical doctors available but very few to serve the rural areas where demand is more.
On the other side business is good option. Perhaps in business there is more earning. But for that your must have enough investment to start your own.

More important is you score in HSSC exams. If in the first year you have scored more than 80% than probably you will get admission in Medical otherwise i would suggest you go for BBA.

Safeer Abbas

Near to Me BBA is good, because you want to do this.

And if you select BBA just because of your low marks in F.Sc. then I would like to suggest you to go for Horticulture or Food Science. If you want to enjoy nature and start your own business then must think above given fields.

For more information about agriculture field please visit;

There are lot of relevant fields to you… Think Big!  

Be happy, Stay Blessed

Good Luck!

The priority of choice could be MBBS, BDS, Food Technologist, Nursing, Law.

Please check courses offered at Agriculture University of Faisalabad in Agriculture and Bio-technology. Also Textile engineering there in Faisalabad.

Good Luck

Scope is there as per your capabilities after acquiring the degree. You can pursue whichever field interests you more.

Sajid Ali

Dear Sundas,

Sorry for delay due to my tough schedule, i would suggest to go for Pharm.D as it has many dimensions BBA has larger number of professionals as compared to Pharm.D.

Syed Iqbal Hyder

It is best to continue your efforts in the field you like. Because you can do better, if like doing BBA.

You should consult a business man or woman, who is already pursuing what you would like to be. This would give you first hand expert opinion!!

All the best

Habib ur Rahman

Your career choice depends on “what you want to do” rather than what is in demand.

If you feel that you are inclined towards either of them just go for it, if your studies match your interest you are bound to succeed in future IA.

To me , BBA and Pharma D are opposite fields so you got to decide what is your interest and once you have figured that out then we can discuss future growth/progress opportunities.

Rao Junaid Aftab

Its good if you go for MBBS ultimately the right career if not then i think BBA.

Rabia Ahmad

960 + marks required for government institution …..and in case for less marks u can join self-finance and private universities
