It’s good that you are planning for the future now itself. You can join Bachelors in Business Management, for which eligibility is 10+2 in any stream. Otherwise you can do graduation in the field you like and then go for Masters in Business Administration (MBA). For admission to both these courses, institutes conduct an entrance test which tests your verbal, quantitative, logical and data interpretative abilities.
But for any course, your 10th and 12th marks will matter! So, concentrate on your studies and ensure that you do really well in these examinations. Also develop a few habits which will help you in your future career. Develop a reading habit; start reading a few novels to improve your vocabulary and verbal ability. Start that now and trust me, it will be of immense help. Solve puzzles; any kind of puzzles. Get involved in extracurricular activities. Learn a new language.
