Nmims is considered the best for this course but it is a little expensive.

Can I know which is the better course, BBA aviation management or BBA aviation and logistics management?

Being a Commerce student straight from Intermediate you should go for a BBA General Course only and shouldn't choose any specific domain to start with as then you can easily relate to whatever is being taught, thereby improving your learning outcomes.
