    Re: Career options after BCA? Job or MCA?

    It is for you to decide which is the best option for you. The most suitable option depends on the your current needs like financial needs and also what your career aspirations are. If you are not in a position to go for higher studies due to financial constrains then certainly you must go for a job. Once things settle you can pursue higher studies either through correspondence or full time course. It is a must that you must pursue higher studies even if you do not pursue it immediately. If you are interested in technical side then go in for MCA course else MBA is an option available. If you would like to go in for short term course then you can go in for a certification courses like C++, JAVA etc. So first decide what it is important for you and how you will achieve it. Certain sooner or later you must complete your postgraduation as only then will you be able to reach heights in career.

    Since you have completed your graduation, the best choice you can make is going for higher studies. You can also opt for career having a Bachelors’ degree. You can work as programmers or web developers in IT companies. However, you may be able to apply only for the entry-level jobs in Software companies. Your career opportunities may go in a hike once you complete your post graduation. Better, pursue the MCA program from a recognized University. For doing the MCA course, you may have to appear for an entrance test. Various Universities conduct the test. Once you clear the test, you can apply for the programs in your preferred college.

    Re: Career options after BCA? Job or MCA?

    If you have completed your BCA course, then i will suggest you, just do MCA course, because after BCA, MCA is best for you. So, if you are interested in furthur study, then please do MCA Course. Because after completing your BCA, you will not find good jobs in IT companies. So, its better if you can do MCA course. After completing MCA course, you will get good jobs in Top IT companies Like Dell, IBM, WIPRO, Infosys etc... So, please think, because it is totally your decision and after completing MCA, your future will secure. So, if you are interested in study and your financial background is good, then i think You have to do MCA course, because Master degree is very important in these days. So, please think and then decide, if you want to secure your future.

    since you have completed your BCA,I will suggest you to go for MCA degree because you have completed you bca,so it will be easy for you to go for mca degree.It is a demanded course.many IT companies are interest in mca and also paying high salary.dont waste you time in other courses go for it.

    you should prefer mca better than bca job because bca has less software knowledge than mca .
    mca is like software engineer so you will get greater opportinity than bca.

    Re: Career options after BCA? Job or MCA?

    it's better you pursue your post graduation in MCA, so that you can get thoroughly acquainted with your specialization. it is highly recommended and significant to complete higher studies as it gives you a platform to learn the in-depth essence of your field of study. this way, after your Masters, you will be able to apply your knowledge more skillfully than doing it now.

    After BCA you must do MCA , from that you can gain the knowledge. But after a year or more of job experience it will be a great deal for doing MCA after BCA .

    Re: Career options after BCA? Job or MCA?

    soon after completion of BCA you can go for job or MCA. but it depends on your career prospects and objectives like financial needs, growth in career , interest in subject etc.

    If you are financially sound and want to continue your studies then you can go for higher education.

    As you have technical background and want aspire to become programmer or software engineer then go for MCA

    doing masters will enhance career growth and leads to high career prospect.

    By just having graduation in your resume you will not find professional jobs so better to go for post graduation.

    All the best.

    DEAR FRIEND THE CHOICE IS SOLELY YOURS, IF YOU WANT TO FURTHER STUDY THEN YOU SHOULD GO FOR MCA OR IF YOUR INTEREST IS RUINED OR THERE IS SOME PROBLEM REGARDING FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE THEN YOU CAN OPT FOR JOB. IF SOMEHOW YOU CAN MANAGE TO GO FOR MCA, THEN I RECOMMEND YOU TO GO FOR THE SAME BECAUSE THE GROWTH RATES ARE FAR GOOD TO EXCEL THAN ONLY BCA GRADUATE. ALSO IF YOU DONT HAVE INTEREST IN TECHNICAL LINE, THEN MBA IS ANOTHER OPTION .
    THINK WELL AND BEST OF LUCK...........

    like bba bca is also an undergraduate programme which needs mca to complete for the full course programme.i mean it will be better if u complete mca then your job scope will increase as there is very less option for a job in case of bca programme.

    Based on your graduation degree, that is BCA you have less job opportunities available.
    You should go for Post graduation , that is MCA. That will increase your mastery over the subject.
    And you will have good number of oppourtunities in goverment as well as private companies.
    You can join some reputed IT firms or software companies and work as a Project manager,
    Analyst, SAP consultant, Programmer, Devoloper etc.

    Re: Career options after BCA? Job or MCA?

    after doing B.C.A there is less job opportunities........you should go for M.C.A........ AND alongwith this if you want to do job..... then do some part time jobs......like work in a B.P.O or work as a D.T.P. operator..........

    ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!

    If you want a bright future then you must pursue masters degree i.e MCA or MBA.If you get on campus placement than go for job for a experience or the best is masters degree.You can also apply for IPS Exam which is conducted under UPSC.

    Although success in every work depends on the one who is doing,but useful guidance matters for his/her.well after BCA,its depend on your wish,if you wanna do job then grab it.if you wanna pursue MCA the go for it,but if you want Job and Study also then join the job and join MCA as a part time.so you will get money with work experience and you will get your desirable way.have a nice future.
