    Re: Can I do M.Com after completing my graduation course with BCA?

    Yes you definitely can pursue your post graduation studies in Master of Commerce (M.Com) after your graduation in Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA).

    Although it is generally recommended to students to pursue their post graduation in the same field as their graduation, there are many students who feel like swapping their subjects or changing the entire field of subject or pursuing their further education in a new discipline.

    Hence we find students from science discipline taking commerce in their under-graduation and something entirely different in their post graduation.

    As M.Com is a commerce based field, you can go for pursuing it but you will need to cover some subjects like accounting, economics and the like.

    And if you find it difficult to go for, you can go for your own field of studies in MCA, which will acquaint you with the thorough knowledge of your specialization.
    Think well!!!
    All the best!!!

    ya my friend,

    you are perfectly eligible for m.com course.

    but m.com is not a good choice for BCA students.

    you do

    **MBA

    **MCA

    both are good options for your career.

    MBA:-

    **master of business administration

    **2 years course

    **eligibility is graduation in any stream from any recognized university.

    **you must write MAT or CAT entrance exam for MBA admission.

    MCA:-

    **master of application

    **3years course

    **eligibility is maths in 12th and graduation in any stream

    **you also entrance exams

    choose any one stream

    all the best

    Hello Friend,
    The Minimum eligibility for M.com is the candidate should be graduate in b.com from a recognized university with minimum percentage of 55%.
    As you are a BCA steam student you cannot pursue M.Com .You have a chance to pursue MCA .
    Some universities also accept graduation degree with honours in economics or business ,management studies.
    If You go with MCA there is a good scope for this course.You can get good placement in many companies.
    The average salary of an MCA graduate is Rs. 35,000 to Rs. 45,000 If he has completed it from recognized university and with good marks. The salary can be increased after getting experience.It is better to go with MCA only .
    All The Best.

    Re: Can I do M.Com after completing my graduation course with BCA?

    Soon after the completion of BCA course, I don't think doing BCA course is not a wise decision as basically you are a candidate of computer related stream and having knowledge on various programming languages.

    But if you have profound interest to join M.Com course, you can join the same. You may come across various business related aspects in M.Com course.

    One more thing that I can suggest you is, you need to strong enough in subject knowledge by the time you complete your M.Com course. So make your preparation in such a manner.

    Several institutes are offering M.Com course in regular and distance mode. Try to get admission in good college and get grip on various concepts related Commerce and Management studies.

    The job opportunities for these candidates are less when compared to that of MBA candidates.

    No friend

    you can not pursue M.Com after your BCA bachelor of computer application ,


    because both the fields are different .


    eligibility for M.COM
    • candidate should hold the degree in B.com (bachelor of commerce )

      or
    • Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting & Finance)
      or
    • Bachelor of Commerce (Banking & insurance)
      or
    • Bachelor of Management Studies degree examination
      or
    • an examination of any other University recognised as equivalent
      or
    • Bachelor of Mass Media Degree Examination (only for Management specialisation subjects)


      at the M.Com. Degree levels.) .

    Re: Can I do M.Com after completing my graduation course with BCA?

    i think you can not do M.Com after completing graduation in computer application. BCA and Commerce is totally different. M.Com is master degree in commerce. only B.Com students after completion of their B.Com can take admission in M.Com. no students from other stream are not eligible to take admission in M.Com. so as a BCA graduate you can not take admission in M.Com.

    as you are BCA graduate i will suggest you to take admission in MCA or you may go for MBA. but if you are really interested for M.Com then you have to do graduation again from commerce stream. i think best option is MCA or MBA for you than M.Com.

    No, you cannot do M.Com. Only B.Com. degree holders can do M.Com.
    But there are a number of master's degree courses for you like MCA, PGDCA, M.Sc. (Computer/IT), MBA etc.
    You can try in these courses.

    yes, you can go for M.Com(entrepreneurship) from Annamalai University and many other institutes also offer M.Com for students not of commerce background but you will have to give entrance test for it.

    Yes it is possible for you to join for the M.Com course. You may need to appear for the entrance exam. This will depend on the university where you plan to pursue the same. You must pursue this course only if you wish to have a career in the finance field especially. You must decide based on the eligibility criteria for the job profile you wish to have. If you are planning to work in the field of accountancy then it will be better to pursue courses like CA, ICWA. The scope will more if you pursue these courses.

    Hey friend,

    To your info M.com is a PG course and it is Master of Commerce.

    If you ask my opinion you can surely apply for the M.com course as you would only need a UG degree.

    As you have done BCA which is Bachelor of Computer Application and a 3 years UG course you can apply for M.com.

    The problem is that it is not better for you to choose M.com after BCA as the departments change as you have done your UG in computer and wanting to do your PG in commerce.

    If at all you finish your M.com after BCA there will be no value for your PG as you have not done your PG from a appropriate line.

    According to me it is better you do MCA which is Master of Computer Application which is a PG course of 3 years duration or if you are interested in commerce line then you can opt MBA which is Master of Business Administration which is 2 years duration.

    For doing MBA you need to have got 50% aggregate in your UG degree and for SC/ST candidates it is 45%.

    I have clearly mentioned the causes and advantages,thereby it is your opinion to choose.

    ALL THE BEST.

    But for appearing M.Com you have to be a graduate with B.Com course.Hence you can't appear for M.Com.

    I didn't understand why are you appearing for M.Com after BCA.BCA is such a good course you can get a job if you like after BCA or you can get good job after doing MCA course from any good university.

    You will learn about computer networking,security applications,software application,OS.After MCA you will get good job in software companies like Infosys,Sapient,Microsoft,Google etc.

    3. If you are apperaing for final years exam of degree can also apply for MCA.

    4.You should have studied science subjects at secondary and graduate level.


    If you are eligible for this course then you should apply for several exams conducted by various universities.

    There are a lot good colleges of MCA:

    1.University of Delhi

    2.Banaras Hindu University, Varnasi

    3.Indian Institute of Technology – IIT Bombay

    4.North Maharashtra University, Jalgaon

    Re: Can I do M.Com after completing my graduation course with BCA?

    Yes you can do M.com after bca.Yo are eligible for m.com after mca.But if you want to do your master's than you can choose MCA after bca.

    Its very good to do higher education related to becholor degree course.So you should choose mca option.There is so much scope after mca.You can

    get a good job in IT sector after mca.You can get more information and knowledge about computer field which will help you to get a good job.So i

    suggest you to go with MCA course.

    Both courses are good but MCA is better than M.com.

    You can choose any one of them which you have more interest.

    SO all the best.
