Options after 12th Commerce

Commerce – An Overview
Commerce is a stream of education that deals with financial assistance or trade and business activities. In the past two decades, commerce as a stream has witnessed a resurgence, shattering the long-standing belief that academically-inclined students naturally drift towards science. As a steam, it is witnessing a renewed interest from students as it offers a plethora of options to choose from. It is a well-structured course that provides a thoughtful outlook to students and teaches all the aspects of trade and business. With core subjects like accountancy, business studies, and economics it provides a strong foundation to the students who wish to be future entrepreneurs or seek a career in the financial domain.

Why Choose Commerce?
Commerce is the most important or rather the only factor that determines the quality of financial health for any country. For a growing country like India, the growth of the economy solely lies on the shoulder of its commerce sector and this is enough to understand the importance of commerce as a stream. As a student when you choose commerce, you are not only responsible for your growth, but also the growth of the economy of the country. Hence, commerce is now becoming a popular choice among students endeavoring to secure well-paid jobs and make substantive contributions to national growth.

Who Should Choose Commerce?
There is a widespread misconception that those who cannot make it to Science prefer Commerce or Commerce is easier than Science. This assumption is erroneous. Both subjects are fairly tough in their way.
So how to assess your ability to take up Commerce? Here's how:

  • An analytical bent of mind
  • Interest in the financial system
  • An aptitude for numbers and numerical data
  • A keen interest in brands and business trends
