- Mr. Dash
My point is, whether my son will be a technical graduate and then prepare for IIM or he will enter into commerce field to be a commerce graduate and then prepare for IIM. in case of technical graduation, every body knows about IIT, NIT, BIT etc. But in case of commerce field, I have no idea about good institutions, imparting education on commerce to get a commerce degree and their procedure for admission into their college. Recently I found that Mumbai University has launched a course on ’BMS’ (Bachelor in Management studies) three year degree course. It has an edge over general commerce graduate for IIM preparation. Howfar it is true & also good I do not know. Therefore I request you to educate me, if possible, about the good institutions imparting commerce graduation course and their procedure for admission to their institution, so that I can prapare my son accordingly.
Choice of stream depends on various factors including one significant factor i.e. what area of specialisation you want to choose for MBA, such as finance, human resources, marketing, operations.
If somebody does MBA after engineering, it is, generally, easy to understand technical aspects. It may be helpful more if you choose a company/industry involved in technical work and projects. Some technical experience may prove even more beneficial. Ideal specialisation fields might be marketing, operations, and related areas.
With commerce stream, you can choose any area of specialisation. But if your target is finance, it is the best option to start with as we know study of commerce provides basic knowledge of finance and accounts. You can find any good commerce institution in nearby location. Some well known commerce colleges in India:-
Shri Ram College of Commerce, Delhi
St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai / Kolkata
Loyola College, Chennai
Narsee Monjee College, Mumbai
Symbiosis College, Pune
Presidency College, Chennai
Christ College, Bangalore
BBA/BBS courses are specially targeted for business management and business administration education but restrict you to management studies only.
Again, we will say ten years is long time. Your son can get bachelor degree in any stream/area he likes. Additionally, it will be much better to review and check trends after 5 years. Things are changing all around. It is quite possible that after few years our education system is different and he has more interesting combinations of subjects to choose from.
