Why 90% of Commerce Graduates Do Not Get Good Jobs After B.Com?

               Best B.Com (Hons) College in Lucknow.

Today, in the competitive job market scenario, merely having a graduate degree like B Com is not enough to land you in a good position. Students need to have a proper knowledge and additional competencies rather than just a B.Com degree to face the strong competition in life.

It is generally believed that earning a bachelor’s degree, particularly B.Com degree in the commerce stream is a pretty good career move and often the minimum requirement for getting a job. Although in many cases, this is correct,  it might be misleading sometimes. And here’s why.

Procrastinating the Career Choice: Most of the students get into commerce stream with no understanding of what it involves. Many students are under the false impression that career moves are to be made after graduation only. The more you postpone this decision, the lesser are the career choices you can make.

No practical skill sets: While there can be a plethora of job opportunities for B.Com graduates, the major game changer becomes the salary package and position and for that merely a B.Com degree is not enough. These days, organizations prefer candidates with additional practical skill sets. Students generally don’t have an idea about the available options of parallel courses that might boost the value of their B.Com degree.

Joining unrelated courses: Without a proper assessment of one’s own strengths and weaknesses, students join certain courses. This could be either because of personal fascination or peer pressure. But at the end, it doesn’t work out, leaving them with poor & underpaid jobs.

Focusing on Academic Courses only: Usually, there are three types of courses in the commerce segment i.e., academic courses (like B.Com), professional courses (like CS, CA etc.) and vocational courses (like Banking & Finance etc.). Generally, students tend to rely only on the academic courses with no inclination towards acquiring practical skill sets. But students with practical skills and vocational courses are given more preference by recruiters. So, it makes much more sense for students to pursue a B.Com degree along with CS and Banking & Finance course.

One Institute that offers 3-in-1 UG Diploma course (Advance Diploma in Banking & Finance+ B.Com (Delhi University)+ Company Secretary) for 10+2 students in three years is the Institute of Banking & Finance (IBF).

This course intelligently combines the academic, professional and vocational course in the commerce stream. While academic course i.e., B.Com degree is suited to give theoretical knowledge, the professional course i.e., CS and vocational course i.e., Banking & Finance make the student industry-ready. Students with this degree have an upper edge over those who have finished only their B.Com degree after class 12th.

With a major part of Delhi University’s B.Com embedded in the curriculum, the students in this course study one of the best-crafted syllabuses in the country. With visiting faculty from regular Delhi University Colleges, it is same as pursuing a regular B.Com Degree from Delhi University along with Advanced Diploma in Banking & Finance.

To make it globally oriented, IBF also holds Global Lecture Series from Ivy League Institutions every week through web streaming of lectures from Harvard, MIT etc. The International guest faculty is invited twice a year and top ranking students from the Institute get an opportunity to go on an Asian Banking Tour for global exposure.

In a nutshell

Thus, it is better for the students to opt for rather than doing something else like BBA. While after BBA, students can only do MBA, after B.Com, students can opt for various options like MBA, M.Com, CA, ICWA and so on. But a mere B.Com degree will not suffice. If additional course like CS and Banking & Finance are added to the B.Com degree, students can become industry-ready and start with better salaries and positions.

Why Study BBA?


Most established universities in India now offer BBA or Bachelor's in Business Administration courses. Similar to an MBA, a BBA degree aims to equip an individual with knowledge of the various aspects of business such as product and distribution, sales and marketing, operations, human resources, financial management, international trade, and strategic planning.A BBA gives graduates the opportunity to be employed as entry-level employees in big corporations, including MNC's. Industries hiring BBA graduates include retail, banking, pharmaceutical, FMCG, BPO's, and financial services. A BBA degree holder can also capitalise on his education to drive an existing family business or start a new one.

BBA Admission - Top colleges and Entrance Test

More and more students these days prefer to enrol for a graduate program that gives them important skills they can implement right away in the work place, rather than study an undergraduate program that is based on pure academics. This would explain why courses such as BBA have become popular with students who have cleared their 10+2.A full-time BBA degree is for three years, while part-time BBA programs typically run for four years.If you are keen on a BBA, 

Although the entrance criteria to these colleges varies, the admission to a BBA course is typically based on 10+2 marks, an entrance exam, and an interview. The entrance test for a BBA is similar to the CAT and MAT exams held for MBA admissions.The entrance test may include the following four sections -

English language test -  
This section will assess your proficiency in the English language. It includes questions on grammar, synonyms and antonyms, passage composition, spelling, and spotting common errors in use of words.

Quantitative aptitude -  
This section tests your level of maths proficiency and is mostly based on math curriculum from 6th to 10th standards. Even if you have a strong grasp of mathematical concepts, do prepare for this section prior to taking the entrance test. Some of the concepts you must brush-up on are square roots, HCF /LCM, percentages, fractions and decimals, compound and simple interest calculation, and quantitative comparison.

Logical reasoning test -
  Logical reasoning questions test your ability to use apply concepts, relations, and logic to solve seemingly complex situations. These questions are unlike anything that is typically taught in school, so you must prepare for this section well. The question types include series tests, insert missing sequence, odd man out, mathematics, data sufficiency, and analogy tests.

General knowledge -  This section evaluates your awareness of general knowledge topics such as politics, trade, business trends, sports, economy and current events. Apart from keeping track of the current local and global news, also brush up your knowledge on subjects studied in school such as political science, history and geography.

B.Com Versus BBA -

A B.Com or Bachelor’s of Commerce is a pure commerce degree covering subjects such as Accountancy, Business Administration, Finance, Economics and Industrial Policies. While B.Com is a highly coveted course in Indian universities, it is not a degree tailored to make you employment-ready. Most students who do a BCom, immediately follow it up with further qualifications such as an M.Com, MBA or a law degree.

A B.Com focuses on the financial aspect of running a business ( for instance business laws, profit and loss, and balance sheet), while a BBA looks at a 360 degree view of business ownership that includes product design, marketing, HR, operations management, and financial accounting.

The choice between BCOM and BBA is a personal one. If you enjoy studying subjects such as accountancy and business law, if you wish to become a chartered accountant / company secretary, or if you want to pursue a line of work other than management, then a B.Com degree is a better choice. On the other hand, if you want start working immediately after graduation, if you aspire to specialise in management studies, or start a business venture, then a BBA is a better choice.

The cost of studying BBA also varies largely. You could have to pay less than a lakh for a BBA from a government sponsored institute, to three to five lakhs from a private institute. Keep the admission costs in mind before applying to a BBA college.

On completion of your BBA, it is advisable to get hands-on experience in the business world before you pursue a MBA. Working for a company will give you the much-needed insight into how to marry ground realities and management theories. In fact, the more reputed business schools in the world prefer candidates with work experience.

How to improve your concentration in study ???

Many students complain that they just can’t concentrate, and that minds race from one thing to another and their thoughts are all over the place - except on their studies.

But almost everyone has the ability to concentrate. Think of a time when you were totally engrossed in something you really enjoyed, for example a movie, a book, a game of rugby or netball. The trick is to use the right strategies to unlock your natural ability to concentrate and apply these to your studies. If, however, you try the strategies below and still struggle to concentrate, contact the Library and Learning Centre; we may be able to provide additional support.

Getting started

  • Your choice of study space can influence your level of concentration. Choose a study space with good lighting and ventilation, which is a tidy, organised and pleasant place to work. This will help reduce distraction.
  • Leave your cell phone outside or turn it off.
  • If you like music that’s okay, just ensure it is not a distraction.
  • Draw up a study timetable that takes into account your energy levels at different times of the day, and stick to it.
  • Divide your work into logical sections that have a beginning and an end. Our brains are holistic, so you’ll find it easier to work on something that forms a whole, rather than something that's left hanging midway.
  • Make a plan
  • Draw up a study timetable that takes into account your energy levels at different times of the day, and stick to it.
  • Divide your work into logical sections that have a beginning and an end. Our brains are holistic, so you’ll find it easier to work on something that forms a whole, rather than something that's left hanging midway.

Set goals for each study session

  • Before you begin studying, take a few minutes to think about what you’ll achieve.
  • Write down your goals for the study period. For example: ‘Summarise pages 40-65’ or ‘Complete the outline of Assignment 1’.
  • Set yourself a time limit before you start. For example: 'I’ll summarise Chapter 2 in 40 minutes'. By doing this, you're setting yourself a goal and your subconscious mind will start working on completing the task in the time available.

Take breaks

  • Research has shown that people:
  • Remember best when they study for shorter periods then recap and consolidate what they learned, as opposed to studying for longer periods.
  • Learn better at the beginning and end of a study period.

So, plan to study for about 30-45 minutes, review what you have learnt, then take a five to 10 minute break.

Build in variety

  • Change the subject or study strategy every few hours. This will lessen the chance of your becoming bored.
  • Use your study break for exercise (or perhaps housework). This changes the pace and helps to get rid of extra adrenaline.
  • Alternate reading with more active learning exercises. For example: mind mapping or writing model answers.

Just say 'Stop'

Every time you notice your thoughts wandering, tell yourself to 'stop'. Then consciously bring your thoughts back to your studies. Initially, you might have to do this many times each study session, but with practice you'll find you are able to focus for longer periods.

If you find it almost impossible to re-focus try taking a break, switching to another subject or topic, or using a different study strategy.

Schedule worry time

Allow yourself time to worry but decide beforehand when and for how long you’re going to worry. Then, when something distracts you while you're studying, or if you start to feel anxious about something during the day, write your thoughts down and set them aside, telling yourself you’ll deal with them during your worry time. 

Learn actively

  • To help you concentrate and remember, learn actively. Active learners do something with what they have learnt, this may include:
  • Putting what they learned into their own words.
  • Comparing what they are learning with what they already know.
  • Linking new facts to what they already know.
  • Applying what they are learning to their own situation, and
  • Using the new information.
