“Commerce is a practical choice for today’s students.”
When it comes to popularity, Commerce, Bachelor’s of Business Administration (BBA) and Bachelors of Computer Applications (BCA) have scored over all other disciplines this year. The subject is not only the hot favourite among the city’s undergraduate students, but also among class XII students. The reason is not very difficult to find.
While on the one hand, it helps children from business families prepare taking over their family enterprises in the future, on the other, it opens myriad options for students, ensuring good pay packages and a secure future.
After commerce, the other favourites among students are Bachelors in Business Administration (BBA) and Bachelors in Computer Applications (BCA).
Educationists say commerce has always been the favourite among students from business family children. However, over the years, it has emerged to be quite popular among the student community at large, for the fact that it opens many doors at all levels.
“Commerce is the most sought after subject globally. It gives the students practical knowledge to fulfill the demands of the corporate sector. Moreover, as compared to other streams like science or arts, commerce opens better options for the students. One can start working right after completing his graduation, without really having to complete his masters first, which of course opens further doors,” said Dr G Munjal, chairman, Swift Group of Colleges, a venture of Indswift Group.
“We received thousands of applications for a few hundred seats across city colleges. The demand is so high that we have requested the university for permission to open another commerce unit on our campus,” revealed Munjal.
“Commerce is a practical choice for today’s students. The astronomical rise in its popularity is due to the availability of commerce-related add-on courses. Students can appear in many competitive examinations like CA, CS and CPT,” said the coordinator of SGOC.
