No need to worry about your options after completing your ‘B.Com’ as choice and opportunities are endless depending on your interests, application and perhaps some luck.
I have listed below few options for B.Com. graduates:
- Becoming accountants, auditors, information systems officers, taxation specialists and customer relationship officers:
- in the Accounting and Computer Profession,
- in the Finance and Banking Industry,
- in the Corporate Sector and at all levels of the Public Sector.
As a commerce graduates you can also pursue higher education and specialize in several areas like M.Com., M.B.A., M.C.A., C.A., Cost Accountants etc. and get into top and middle management levels in corporate and public sector. A law degree goes well with the commerce degree and one can take up private practice or join a firm specializing in tax laws.
All said and done, now one piece of advice from my side – ‘Try to gain some Industry experience before you make a decision to specialize in one of the areas mentioned above‘. This experience will help you in getting better understanding of the concepts you have grasped till now and will also open your mind towards the various other opportunities.
Hope I was able to solve your problem to a bit!! Let me know if you need to discuss anything further in detail.
Its always beneficial to have some work experience before going for higher studies, as you will be able to connect more with the courses offered. Being a B.Com graduate you have got to chose from a variety of options listed below:
- Accounting – Careers with numbers
- Auditor – includes checking accounting ledgers and financial statements within corporations and Government.
- Market Research – The essence of the market research industry is to enable companies to reduce risk when they take important decisions in the market.
- Rural Management – it’s all about going back to our villages, the basic unit of Indian life.
- Event Management – a range of services like Brand Launching, live shows, conference staging, exhibitions, retail merchandising, fashion shows, materials management, delegate management, event marketing etc.
- Entrepreneurship, another option, is not just about making money. It is about initiative, imagination, flexibility, creativity and the capacity to see change as an opportunity.
Choose your options wisely!!
In my perspective you should work for a year or so.. Till you find what you are looking for.
While you are at work you get to learn a lot on job.
Later if you feel you want to study further do take it up.
As 1 year of experience will give you a better perspective to study further.
And if you think you have to study further don’t delay it..
Gaps can be a problem on the long run.
Hope this helps….
Go with your heart. If you want to study more, go for mcom or mba but if you want to start a job and are physically prepared, go with the job but you will get a job with good pay roll if you pursue masters first. all the best.
