Abstract: Researchers uncovered number of factors that affect young students in finding their preferred career, and that lead to career indecision. This study thus drives into two directions: first to identify the major barriers that stimulate difficulty for students to explore right career, and second to ascertain what occupational barriers lead to career indecision. The sample of this research involved final-year BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration) students studying at ten different universities in Bangladesh. A survey was steered using self-reported questionnaire consisting of two standardized measures to gather research data. Surveyed data were reviewed first to ensure usability and then analysed following a number of distinct statistical techniques including descriptive, Pearson correlation and regression analysis. All the statistical analyses were performed in SPSS software version 20.00. Results reveal that political and social reference, national shortage of good job, lack of parental interest, lack of career counseling and lack of personal ability significantly affect students’ career, that in consequence lead to career indecision. The present research suggests that various policy-makers, management and university may support students by ensuring merit-based recruitment, generating prospects through new ventures, organising career programs and developing their aptitudes.
