which option is best for student of commerce such as mba,ca,cs
It depends on individual preferences and skills. Commerce stream is more or less connected to all three courses; CA, CS, MBA. However, these courses are open for students of other streams too.
Chartered Accountancy is related to the field of Accounting. CA requires hard work; involves study, practical training; offers good opportunities to get engaged in trade and industry, private practicing, and own industrial or business venture.
Company Secretary acts as an advisor and consultant to companies for legal aspects. A qualified CS can work in the private and public sector, financial institutions, stock exchanges; and can opt for independent practice as well.
MBA is more versatile, has various branches of specialisations e.g. finance, marketing, human resources, sales, retail, operations, etc. and hence offers opportunities with almost all types of establishments at managerial or executive levels.
CA and CS are pure professional courses and have their own independent governing authority which provides guidelines, conducts exams, and grants memberships to qualified members at all India level. These governing authorities are the Institute of Chartered Accountant of India for CA and the Institute of Company Secretaries of India for CS. MBA is different; a regular or distance education course comes under AICTE/UGC run by various institutions which have different syllabi, teaching procedures, question paper and examination systems.
A small percentage of students enrolled with CA or CS programme completes these courses as compared to MBA.
