Commerce – Accounts & Finance

Accounts & Finance are part of every single industry, be it the food industry, the medical sector, the agricultural industry or any small & large firm or for that matter even the smallest of retail shop needs to maintain a daily account – be it the owner of a ‘pan-beedi’ shop, a grocery shop or a multi-national company everybody needs to maintain an everyday account. Why just retail shops or companies, let’s look at a very simple everyday example to which all of us can connect to – your parents. Ever seen your mother/father maintaining a daily account? It’s easy to spend, but when you are required to make a note of your daily transport, grocery, electricity, water, medical and many more expenses, you think it’s an easy task? Sure it’s tough.


The above examples are only to make you aware that money/finance is something without which the entire human race cannot survive. We study, we strive, only to build ourselves a good and comfortable living of which money occupies a major part. So when you have to maintain an account for every single thing throughout your life, imagine how much a course that trains you for such work will actually make things easy for you. You are then equipped with the talent not only on a personal but also on a highly professional front.


By and large the myth is that commerce is the most preferred course today, the reason being Science is a pretty expensive choice, Arts is only for dumb people and most of us are not aware of any other options apart from Science, Arts & Commerce. This of course is on a very general note. Several issues like personal choice, course cost, future scope of the course, employment avenues, and so on…also affect our choice of what we wish to pursue and what we finally pursue as our career.


Assumptions apart, Commerce is an equally interesting and one of the most practical subjects. It is true that a commerce student needn’t stay back in college for long hours. So choosing this subject provides ample time and opportunity to devote to related courses or fulfill your hobbies or for that matter even gain experience through a part-time job. Moreover, the subject provides a strong base to pursue further courses like Marketing, Human Resource, Industrial Psychology, Organizational Behaviour, and so on.
