1. Bachelor of Commerce
This is a course that most 12th Commerce stream students pursue after schooling! And there are many reasons why this course is so popular.
First of all, the level of academic difficulty associated with this course is not too high. That means it is relatively easy to go through a Bachelor of Commerce and obtain a Degree.
Another advantage is that it allows students to venture into other fields. It is one such course, after doing which, one may go for other job-oriented courses such as M.B.A., Vocational courses, Skill oriented courses, etc.
When it comes to Bachelor of Commerce, the course duration is 3 years. After its completion, students may go for M.Com, which is a Master’s program. M.Com. will take 2 years to complete. After B.Com.-M.Com., one may easily get a job in the teaching sector.
Usually, only graduates may pursue L.L.B. But, thanks to new rules, it is also possible for 12th Commerce students to pursue Law courses from Law schools after schooling.
But to do so, they will have to select an integrated Law course! Such integrated courses last for five years. These Integrated courses are the combination of a Degree course and a traditional L.L.B. course.
Talking about job opportunities, one may take up a job in any law firm at the beginning. Gradually, one may start up on one’s own private practice, start a consulting firm or even start an own law firm!
3. Chartered Accountant
The job of a Chartered Accountant is to see to it that the financial affairs of businesses and companies are in accordance with the laws set by Government authorities.
Their tasks include looking into tax affairs, looking into financial transactions through auditing, creating necessary reports, etc.
To become a Chartered Accountant, one has to successfully complete the Chartered Accountancy course and become a member of ICAI (Institute of Chartered Accountants of India).
In the case of 12th Commerce passed students, they may start off by applying for CPT (Common Proficiency Test). This test managed by ICAI.
Once CPT is cleared, students have to appear for the Chartered Accountant Intercourse. After completing the Chartered Accountant Inter exam and doing Information Technology Training Course, one may appear for Chartered Accountant Final exam!
4. Bachelor of Business Administration
It is a 3 years long degree course. After completion, one may also follow it up with an M.B.A. (Master of Business Administration) Degree too!
After Bachelor of Business Administration, one may land managerial jobs in the private sector. Though jobs are available for the Bachelor of Business Administration graduates in the Government sector, the private sector offers more opportunities!
Many MNCs recruit talented Bachelor of Business Administration graduates to deal with management and finance-related posts.
5. Bachelor of Economics
Why I mentioned this course here is that Commerce stream students will find it relatively easier to deal with B.A. Economics.
After completing this course (which lasts 3 years), one may land jobs in the private as well as the Government sector.
There are many Government posts, which B.A. Economics graduates are eligible to apply for! And in the private sector, companies hire graduates to take up posts related to finance.
6. Company Secretary Course
For any company to function properly, a company secretary is needed! And to become a company secretary, one has to appear for the Company Secretaryship course and clear the exams associated with the course.
ICSI (Institute of Company Secretaries of India) is the Institute that the Government has tasked to conduct the course and examination!
In the case of 12th Commerce passed students, to get selected for the company secretary course offered by ICSI, they must go through a 3 stage program. The three programs are-
1. Foundation Program
2. Executive Program
3. Professional Program
Talking about job opportunities, with no doubt, the private sector provides ample job opportunities.
7. Hospitality Diploma Courses
When it comes to Hospitality courses, the eligibility criteria are not very strict. Even 10th passed students may pursue Hospitality Diploma courses!
But on the other side, such courses possess good value too! I must say that they are job-oriented courses.
