After completing school studies, students have a lot of courses to opt from different streams; like B.Tech, B.Com, MBBS, BBA, BSc, etc. The real concern arises after graduation, what next?
The available options to students are:
Doing Masters as an extension to the same course- For example, B.Tech students may go for M.Tech, B.Com students for M.Com, and likewise.
Opting for campus placements- Top IT companies hire many students directly from colleges after their graduation and train them in different fields like Java, DotNet, etc. and assign them roles in support and development areas.
Graduation plays a critical role in shaping one’s professional career. After completing graduation, one is supposed to have specialized knowledge in a particular stream of education. It provides a base that can be utilized to realize one’s dreams.
One of the most lucrative field in today’s scenario is Management studies. A majority of students and even working professionals now aim for MBA (Masters in Business Management). It provides objective specialization in Finance, HR, Marketing, etc., which helps people achieve professional success in their desired domain.
Professional courses like CA, CS, CFA are also good options for students having keen interest in Commerce – more specifically, Accounts. These courses last for around 6 years and eventually enable people to offer their services in exchange of exorbitant fees.
Students who get in graduation courses like B.Ed and further M.Ed make their careers in academics. This track gets even better when one completes M.Phil and eventually PhD in a particular subject. This enables them to become professors in colleges, which unlike before has higher pay package and exposure to international forums if interested in attending academic events.
Students having keen interest in creative fields can get into courses like Interior Designing, Fashion Designing, Home Science, Film Making, etc.
The main idea here is, that the student should identify his area of interest and decide the graduation course accordingly. But if this does not happen, the student can get into a course based on the subjects one studied in school (Commerce, Science, etc.) and figure out during the years of graduation the area of interest and then pursue it.
One advice for students is, don’t think much – experience, learn and progress! Get involved in online discussions with similar peer group on EduThrill, to compare your scope of growth.
