  • I am pursuing my BBA in Pune but then I somehow do not seem to like what I am learning...I mean names of Companies and their CEOs...Perhaps I did not get the right college. However, in these two year's period in Pune, I am being curious about how things are designed, how different design theories are applied in real life ... In short, I want to explore the 'creative' aspect of my own self...So I just wanted to inquire if there is any possibility for me to join bachelor of design or architect...I am not from Science background in +2 but I am good at Mathematics and English. Please let me know as soon as you possibly can. Also, let me know the cost of doing bachelor in Design or Architecture studies. Additionally, I believe that human beings have immense potential to achieve anything they want in life so if I am motivated, nothing(including my non-science background) can impede my achievement and advancement. So I look forward to your reply regarding my query as soon as possible. Posted By : Shraddha Pant, on 28-03-2011 22:50:03 Report Abuse
