B.Com again tops popularity chart

Colleges in and around the city have started issuing applications for undergraduate admissions even as class 12 students await their results. While some institutions said they were yet to calculate the actual number of applications for each course, early trends indicate that B.Com remains the most popular among the degree courses. We had to open a third section for B.Com, owing to the demand, said SRM University dean (admissions) R Muthusubramaniam. At the Madras Christian College, too, it’s B.Com as usual. Academics and students said the variety of options a candidate had, after graduation and while still studying, made B.Com the most sought after.

B.Com again tops popularity chart

Commerce graduates have a good chance of getting jobs in the banking or insurance sectors and the BPO industry is also quick to pick them up, said educational consultant Jayaprakash Gandhi. While pursuing a B.Com, students said, they would have time to train for exams like the Common Admission Test. I want to pursue MBA after graduation and have enrolled in a CAT coaching programme. My parents and I feel B.Com is ideal as it allows some flexibility, and because it is also a course I can bank on even if I am unable to get into a good B-school, said Vaishnavi Santhanam, who has applications from four colleges.

Gandhi said around 60-70 % of students looked to pursue an MBA after B.Com. Not least because it would equip them with basic managerial skills and give them an idea of general business principles, quantitative analysis and organizational behaviour topics dealt with in detail in MBA. Many also saw commerce as the first step towards becoming a chartered accountant or company secretary. S Guruswamy, head, commerce department, University of Madras, said, Now, there is no arts and science college without a commerce department. There is a growing demand for teachers, and qualified teachers who have either cleared the National Eligibility Test or have completed their PhD.
