If you wish to grab a seat in B.Com Hons and especially in a Delhi University college, you need to pass with flying colours at your plus two level. And if you are pursuing this course already then you are in the list of fortunate ones, as a lot of students every year dream for this prodigious course but not all get to grab a seat in it. After 3 years of meticulous learning, this course offers you various opportunities to embellish your career. Some of you would be dreaming to pursue a job and some would be planning to go for further studies, hence I have bifurcated the post into two brief parts! Have a look and choose what suits you the best! Check out these career options after B Com.

Career After B Com (Hons.)

Further studies:

1) M.COM– The very first option is masters in your own subjects. Students interested in research can opt for M.com followed by MPhil and Ph.D. This set of qualifications offers nice teaching jobs as associate professors at the university level.

2) CA, CS, ICWA:

These professional courses are the choice of most of the commerce graduates as it provides a promising career once you have crossed over those “monstrous”  exams. Also, you do not need to take the foundation exams, as you can get a direct entry in its level 2 on the basis of your b.com degree.

3) CRISIL Certified Analyst Programme:

Not much known to all, this course offered by CRISIL with Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) as it’s academic partner, provides you with live projects on various research and analysis subjects. It offers a more liberal syllabus than other masters courses. Being a professional course, it lands you at a good earning option. CRISIL conducts its own aptitude test, it also gives direct admissions based on CAT, XAT and GMAT scores. Fees for the program are comparatively low.

4) Actuarial Science:

The much-hyped course remains untapped due to the myth that ” ye to aukat ke bahar hai Bhai!”. Actuarial science includes subjects related to risk analysis and lands you after successful completion mostly in the finance and insurance sector. This course requires high mathematical and statistical skills and marks at +2 level as well.

5) MBA:

All time famous MBA is like a wishing well in which every year thousands of students slip there coins. Students should be very clear about, in what subjects they want to get specialization in their MBA, even before filling its application form. You can also choose an executive program in applied finance which is a complete value addition for a commerce graduate. This course is exclusively offered by IIM Calcutta.

6) Diploma Courses:

You can go for the various available diploma courses, which will provide you a platform to enter corporates and government jobs as well. Diploma courses in Treasury and Forex management, Merchant Banking and Financial Service, Export-Import , foreign trade and so on, can help you to build your profile.

Difference Between B Com (H ) & B Com (Prog.) | Which is Better

JOBS After Graduation:

1) Jobs through govt. Exams:

You can try your hands in the conventional Bank PO, IBPS and many other exams at the clerical level also if you want to stand financially on your own feet right after your graduation. These jobs offer really good salaries along with govt. facilities. Also, government jobs are the most sought after ones in the country, hence competition level is high. You can also apply for junior association in various KPOs and Tax audit assistance.

2) IES:

Although IES comes under govt. Exams only, but this one deserves a separate mention. Indian Economic Service (IES), is one of the reputed jobs in the country. Govt. conducts exams for this service same as IAS and those selected, get a place in govt. planning cluster such as NITI Aayog. But again it needs a dire love for economics and if you are an economic freak, then you can opt to become the future Economist serving the nation!

In a nutshell, you are in the best course available for graduation. You have the pool of opportunities which are waiting for you to grab them, so start planning if you are a Fuchhaa and start preparing if you are going to receive a farewell in the coming months!

  1. It’s Actuarial Science, not Acturial Science.
    On one hand you’re talking about the course being unknown and untapped and on the other hand you’re writing the wrong spelling, indirectly proving your point.
    Anyway, kindly correct it. ?
    Ps – I like the post.

  2. Yes give AFCAT and CDS exam in your final year of college to become an Air force officer after B.com. You will be eligible for ground and administrative branch.
