Reasons Why Commerce Students Should Pursue a Specialized Course

You pushed yourself hard for that B. Com admission and put in full dedication for those three years. Moreover, now, you have got your B. Com degree all framed and hanged on your bedroom wall. Well, congratulations! You know what job profiles you can explore with that degree. However, do you know how well you can establish yourself financially after pursuing a specialization?

There are many benefits of pursuing a specialization after B. Com admission and degree but choosing the right specialization is one of the most difficult parts. Why? Because the specialization you choose will decide the career path and even the money that you will make. For example, you want to be a part of the finance department of any of the MNCs, a specialization in taxation will open doors of various organizations for you.

Not just this, specialization in taxation will make you entitled to work with various firms & companies, government departments, banks, agencies, educational institutions and many other types of organizations in their Taxation and Finance department.

Now let’s have a look at why specialization in any field holds importance in the corporate culture.

Industry Oriented Curriculum

Many colleges and universities offer an industry-oriented curriculum that makes the students thoroughly prepared to step in the corporate world. The entire curriculum is based on the on-going demands of the industry and hence imparts the exact knowledge that the students require.

In-Depth Knowledge of One Field

It is always a great step to gain in-depth knowledge about one industry or domain and further take measures to make a mark in that field. Even MNCs and corporate look for candidates who have in-depth knowledge about the domain. For example, if two candidates, one with B. Com degree and the other with B. Com (Hons.) Taxation degree apply for the same position in the company, weightage will be given to the one with specialization.

Recognition from the Corporate World

As stated above, companies consider those candidates with higher qualification and better domain knowledge. Whether you apply for the position of Tax Policy Analyst, Risk Analyst, Tax Examiner or Financial Analyst, your specialization will help you bag the role. Furthermore, you will receive recognition in the industry as well.

Polished Skillset

You might be good with numbers and great at what you do. However, there isn’t any harm in working towards polishing the skillset that you have. When you pursue a specialized course after your commerce degree, your skillset is further polished and starts getting noticed by industry experts. So, it’s not just your B. Com admission and degree that counts, but the specialization as well.

Final Words!

To climb the ladder of success, you must leave no stone unturned. From getting the right degree to further having a specialization in it, you should do it all. Another thing to consider is the college or university to pursue the specialization. Trust us, it makes a lot of difference. Universities like UPES follow an industry-aligned approach to make all their students ready to take on the role from day one. So, if you want to make it big, go for a specialization after you have completed your B. Com admission and degree.

Scholarship is an Opportunity That Should not Be Missed

Scholarship is an Opportunity That Should not Be Missed...

Quality education, brilliant guidance and better resources are some of the most important things that students need for their academic excellence. However, not all of these things are available equally to all students. Most of the times, privileged students with a strong financial background get this golden opportunity to stay ahead among others.  

Others either get an education loan or just end up leaving their dreams behind. However, as they say, “Where there's a will, there's a way”, students who don’t want an education loan can opt for scholarship exams. SCHOLARSHIPS are not just a monetary help but also a recognition of student’s talents.

Irrespective of their academic level, students can opt for plenty of scholarships that align with their career goals. While some scholarships are especially given to those who belong to poor families, others offer financial help to students based on merits.

So, if you look for a NATIONAL TALENT SEARCH EXAMINATION FOR CLASS 8, you can easily find scholarship exams like Aakash National Talent Hunt Exam (ANTHE) and apply for it. However, before that, it is important to know why scholarship is an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed.

Here are all the benefits that you get if you win a scholarship:

No Financial Worries

It’s obvious, but still isn’t it exciting if you don’t have to pay any fee to get an excellent education at the premier institute? Whether you wish to prepare for entrance exams like NEET and JEE or wish to pursue a course abroad, you can do it all without worrying about the fee if you win a scholarship. No need to take a loan or make your family feel burdened with the hefty amount to be paid for your education. Just prepare well for the exam and ace it with flying colours.

Guidance from Experienced Faculty

You want to take the medical or engineering competitive exams, but before that, you need excellent guidance from a premier coaching institute. To ensure this, you can opt for scholarship exams such as the one conducted by Aakash Institute. ANTHE is a national talent search examination for class 8, 9 and 10 students and offers scholarship for its classroom as well as distance learning programs. If you ace the exam, you will get the chance to learn from the experienced faculty and prepare excellently for the entrance exams.

Earn Recognition

By winning a scholarship, you don’t just get free education but also earn recognition for your talent which will help you grow further in your career. You will outshine among your classmates; moreover, your parents and teachers will be proud of your achievements. Getting all these at an early age is one of the driving factors that will motivate you to concentrate more on your goals and become a winner.

Get a Boost in Self-Confidence

Self-confidence is one of the key traits of winners. This only comes when you are motivated enough and have complete faith in your abilities. At times, you do not even know that you are capable enough to reach for the bigger milestone in the academic field. Scholarships come as a great option in realising that. Once you secure a good rank, you will know where you stand and then practice well to improve your standing. And in case you win the scholarship, well, there is everything good about it, isn’t it? You not only feel confident but also aware of your future goals.

After reading the above-listed advantages of scholarships, we are sure you will not want to miss this opportunity. However, if you keep on thinking about applying, this opportunity will hardly come your way. So, hurry up and apply for the scholarship to gain amazing benefits.
