Dear Vinod.
As you are a BBA student I will give you some help. At that level, you are not required to add anything new to the knowledge bank. It would be enough to demonstrate your command of the topic. Kindly read the material at http://prenhall.com <link fixed> and also materials in the links at Google For example, Organizational Structure <link updated to site home> ( Search On Cite | Search On Google )
Then kindly pose some precise questions.

Organization structure is a Tree like representation of the reporting linkages of the people in different departments. It starts on the top with the CEO & defines who are his/ her direct reports. These could be the Functional Heads like CFO, COO, CTO, VP - Sales, VP - Marketing, VP - HR, VP - Admin etc.... The next level starts with the employees who, in turn, report to these functional heads. And this reporting mechanism travels downward to the last person in each department. These reporting channels define the control function at different levels of an organizational structure. This type of a structure is generally limited to Supervisory level of employees. The workers placed under each supervisor are shown in numbers pertaining to different trades (such as Machinists, Welders, Store persons, Crane Operators, Clerks, Data Entry Staff etc....). The sum total of people in this tree - like chart indicates the authorized manpower of the organization.

Yet another approach to define the organization structure is through 'Job Descriptions (JDs)'. This requires each Job Description to carry a discreet Number which recognizes the functional area of the employee. For example, the Job Description Number of all employees recruited for the Admin function may commence with the letter 'A'. And the remaining digits in the Job Description Number 'A - 11/ 2002' refer to the 11th job introduced in the year 2002. Any such numbering scheme could be designed similar to that for an inventory of materials. Now each job position number should be linked to a higher level Job position number. This would define the default career path of an employee. The next could be the linkage to a Job Position Number to which each job position reports. This defines the reporting hierarchy & thus builds the Organization's hierarchical structure.

I am not sure if as a BBA student, you can understand the JDs approach to developing an Org Structure, but this type of a modeling is very useful to define the totality of an organization. HR Managers who have attempted this approach could use the data for recruitment, competency gap analysis, Job enrichment, promotions, career planning etc...

An organizational structure consists of activities such as task allocation, coordination and supervision, which are directed towards the achievement of organizational aims.[1] It can also be considered as the viewing glass or perspective through which individuals see their organization and its environment.[2]
Organizations are a variant of clustered entities.[citation needed]
An organization can be structured in many different ways, depending on their objectives. The structure of an organization will determine the modes in which it operates and performs.
Organizational structure allows the expressed allocation of responsibilities for different functions and processes to different entities such as the branch, department, workgroup and individual.
Organizational structure affects organizational action in two big ways. First, it provides the foundation on which standard operating procedures and routines rest. Second, it determines which individuals get to participate in which decision
