What are the career scopes in commerce?

Commerce is a very promising field, if someone wants to make their career in it.

But,
Will reveal that in our country, just 15% of commerce student are seriously concerned towards career.

Most people either opt that because schools do not permit to choose them science and maths or when someone is being too much crumbled up with studies.

I assume you are in the 15% category.

 So here's list of career opportunities:

Commerce is about figuring out how business works, how to manage a company and personnel, keeping a track of the stock market, keeping tabs on tax schemes and much more.

The top 5 courses at the graduate level are as follows:

  • Bachelor Of Commerce (BCom)
  • Bachelor Of Business Studies (BBS)
  • Bachelor Of Management Studies (BMS)
  • Bachelor Of Business Administration (BBA)
  • Bachelor Of Business Management (BBM)

However, the Bachelor of Commerce programme itself offers a plethora of specialisations.

1. Bachelor of Commerce (BCOM)

The BCom degree can help establish a career in finance, taxation, operations, etc, depending on the course specification opted for.

    There are two important aspects of choosing a career. First is awareness, you need to know (What is, Education, Skills, Positives, Challenges and A Day) in the profession you finally choose. Second is Self Assessment, after you understand a particular profession you should try to figure out if that profession is good for you.

    Do not waste your time with parents, friends, relatives, teachers, counselors, aptitude tests… Declare to yourself – My Life, My Career, My Decision. Rest of your life will depend on how much effort you have invested in taking a smart career decision.

    Using LifePage Android App you learn about various careers by watching videos of real professionals. Then you do Self Assessments to choose a career.

  4. Choosing a right course or a career is purely depends on our interest and liking. If we analyse our self then will can easily find out best career option for us.

    its just find your personal interest.

    it could be anything.

    1. Accounts

    3. Hotel Management.
    4. Air Hostess.
    5. Finance.
    6. Share Market.

    20. Life advise person.(If you love to talk about life all the time,this personally helps,you know why? because even you needs a person who listens you and react,suggest as you are making picture in your mind.
  6. Considering that you already know about the most common degrees available to the commerce students i.e. Chartered Accountancy with CS, and B.B.A/B.M.S with M.B.A.Let me acquaint you with fields these degrees and others offer you. Now assuming that you are good at accountancy, economics, and math, these are the fields you can pursue.

    1. Investment Banking – Provided that you’re good at it,investment banking can help you make a lot of money. An investment bank is a private company that helps it’s clients to raise capitals, advises about mergers and acquisitions, etc.
      It is a high pressure job, which requires long hours and diligence. M.B.A from a reputed college or a degree in C.F.A can help you land up in an investment bank.
    2. Corporate Law – Being a law student, I know about the immense opportunity this field provides. However, you can only excel in this field if it interests you because scoring good marks at law school, and performing superbly during your internships is the only way to grab a job at a top law firm.
      You can also pursue other areas of law as per your interest like litigation, arbitration,judiciary, etc.
      You’ll have to prepare for law entrance exams like CLAT, AILET, Symbiosis Entrance Test, and MH-CET to get into a good law school.
    3. Finance – Since you’re a high school student you might have a very limited knowledge about this field. A degree in Bachelor’s in Financial Market or Bachelor’s in Accounting and Finance can help you climb the ladder. M.B.A after any of these degrees can help you pursue fields like portfolio management, investment banking, hedge funds,etc. I advice you to research more about this if this attracts you.

      You might already know about the other mainstream undergraduate degrees like B.com, B.M.S which are also good if you want to prepare for CA/CS/CFA/IIM.

      Also, you can appear for entrance exams of hotel management, fashion designing,etc. or switch to humanities after 12th. Every field has potential provided that you work hard

      All the best.

  8. There are already good answers w.r.t the options available in the field of commerce. I would like to throw some light on the process of career choice.

    Like many people, you may be wondering how to choose the right career. The most important thing you can do when you are trying to pick a career is to choose one that is right for you. Finding out what career is a good fit for you is truly all that matters. Ignore people who tell you what type of work to pursue and best careers lists hyped in the media unless you do your homework.Because you will pour so much of yourself into your job, and spend so much time at work, your career must be suitable for http://you.It has to fit well with your interests, aptitudes, work-related values, and personality type. It has to have job duties that you can see yourself performing day in and day out, you must be willing to do everything you must to prepare for it, and it needs to have a good outlook for years to come. If a career fits these criteria, there is a better chance you will be satisfied with it and enjoy your work. And you won't resent spending so much of your waking hours doing it.

    First, Learn More About Yourself

    Your first order of business is to learn as much as you can about yourself. If you think you know all there is to know, you will definitely be surprised by what you will discover by doing a thorough self assessment. While you can find online resources to help you with this, the most efficient and effective way to do it—although often not the cheapest—is to hire a career development professional, for example, a career counselor or career development facilitator.He or she will use various tools to help you gather information about yourself and, based on it, provide you with a list of careers that might be a good fit.If finances are an issue, don't let that keep you from getting the help you need. Many public libraries, for example, offer career planning services.Ask the librarian at your local library. If yours doesn't provide this service, you may be able to get help from one in another community. The librarian can also direct you to local agencies that provide career counseling.If you attended college, you should also check with that institution. Many career services offices provide help to alumni. Some local college or university career offices may be open to members of the community. Programs that train career counselors often have students work with clients at no or a low cost to gain experience.

    Next, Learn About the Occupations on Your List

    While the self assessment is a great starting point to begin your quest to choose the right career, it is not your final step in this process. Your list will contain seemingly suitable options. Some may be nearly perfect for you, but others may be all wrong. They may be a good match for your personality type, interests, values, and aptitudes, but may be unsuitable in other ways. For example, the job duties may be unappealing; the outlook may be poor; or you may not be willing to get the required education or training.But you won't know any of that without moving ahead to the next step. Learning about the careers on your list is the only way to make an informed decision.Before you do anything else, read descriptions of the occupations and learn about the job duties for each one. Try to ignore your preconceived notions. You may think you know something about a particular career, but unless you have personal experience with it or did prior research, you probably don't have enough information to decide whether you would be satisfied with the day-to-day work involved in it.If after getting a job description and learning about its job duties, you are still interested in an occupation, you must learn what you will have to do to prepare to work in it. Unless you are willing to fulfill the educational and training requirements, you should not keep it on your list. If a career, for example, requires a great deal of education before you can begin working, but you have neither the desire nor the resources to commit to that, it's not a good choice for you. Likewise, neither is a career that requires little training when you have the inclination and ability to earn a college degree.Finally, you will be doing yourself a great disservice if you don't look at an occupation's outlook. When you have narrowed down your choices to just a few, then you should investigate even further, perhaps conducting some informational interviews with those working in the field. You can now make an educated decision. Now that's how to choose the right career.
