    Re: Career options after BCA. Should I go for a job or MCA?

    Either of the options are fine. First of all you need to decide which area interests you. Also whether the BCA qualification is sufficient for securing a job as per your interest. If not then what qualification is needed to secure the job. It is better to join for the Masters course as you can specialise in the field of computer application. The chances of getting a good job is higher thereafter. If you have financial constraints then you can join for the job and pursue the MCA course part time. There are quit a few institutes like IGNOU, Bharathiar University, University of Madras which offer courses in this area. If you would like to go into the administrative role then you can consider taking an MBA. There are many institutes which offer part time and full time course. You will need to appear for the entrance exam to secure admission. Make sure that you pursue the course from a recognised institute.

    After completion of graduation most of the students often face a dilemma in which they have to choose whether to go for a job or for higher studies. In fact, this is an easy choice if they have a clear idea about their career goals. There is no problem if the student wants to work after BCA and gain experience and later on go for higher studies. This will help them to set their priorities straight and come right back and continue studies if they want. As a BCA graduate, ensure to get a job in the similar fields of studies. This will help you later on while going for higher studies. You can choose MCA if you are interested in the computer field. MBA is another good option after BCA if you like management field.

    You can do a job but it will not be of any use. In India there's no scope for the BCA students , MCA will become must for you to get a job in a MNC.

    If you have completed BCA from good colleges then you can also get job from MNCs.

    You should do MCA because now a days in India there is not much value of just graduation..and you may have limited option if you go for job after BCA....SO its better to do MCA after completion of your BCA...

    As you know,in the today's era,the competition is increasing,so after BCA,you have three ways-
    First-you can join job.
    Second-you can pursue MCA
    Third-you can join job and can do MCA part time.
    Although,its depend on your area of interest,but as my view the third option will best suit on you.Good luck.

    After completing , BCA you can get a low profile job only, so its better to go for MCA.
    Also there is so much competition these days its not easy for graduates to find job.

    For MCA:
    Eligibility Criteria
    Students who have done their BCA, BBA or B.Tech can apply for the MCA course.
    Students who have finished their graduation in science can also apply.
    These students must have studied Mathematics as a subject in class 10+2. There is no age limit regarding the admission to this course.

    Students who would like to join the MCA course must have a pass in graduation with more than 60 percent marks. They need to write an entrance exam as to get admission into the MCA course.

    Both of the options can be exercised if the expected success.iIn my opinion, MCA is the most appropriate option for a candidate who want to study further in this respective field.
    But if you wan to go for a job then this option can also lead to a bright and successful career. because opting for a job would give you a lot of experience and expertise in your concerned field.
    Just go ahead and make a bright and successful career by choosing from any of the two options.

    Re: Career options after BCA. Should I go for a job or MCA?

    If you have completed your BCA and want to study further, then I think MCA is the best option for you, because you have already completed your BCA and if you are interested to become a good software engineer then you have to go with MCA Course. After Completing MCA Course, You will definitely get good jobs in top IT Companies like Wipro, Infoysis, TCS, and others. These company will recruits the MCA Freshers Candidates with good starting salary package. So I think You have to go with MCA course and if you join this course, you will not face any difficulties because you have already completed your BCA and in MCA you will find most of the subjects same as BCA But you will learn in details. So, If you are Interested to make your career bright in Computer field, then MCA is the best option.

    Other wise If you are Interested in some Other course then you can go with MBA course, If you are Interested to join some top MNC company Or starting your own business.

    So, Please think and then choose course according to your own interest. But according to me MCA Is the best course for you.

    hi

    Career options after BCA
    After BCA, I Will Suggest You, Just Go for Mater Degree Course, Because After BCA You will Not Find Good Jobs.
    So, If You Are Interested To Continue Your Study And Your Family Condition Was Not Good, Then You Can Take Loan From The Bank, So That You Will Completed Your Master Degree Course, And After Completing Your Master Degree Course, Definitely You Will Get Good Jobs In Future.
    And If You Have Scored Good Marks OR More than 70% Marks In Your BCA Course, Then There Was Manny Colleges In India Who Provide Scholarship To That Students, So That They Will Complete His Study.
    After BCA, You Can Not Find Good Jobs, But If You Are Interested, then You Can Apply for Wipro. The Wipro Will Conducts The Exams, If You Will Be Able to Clear That Exams, Then You Will get Chance to Work With Wipro Company. For More details Please Visit the Official Website Of WIPRO -
    But, I Will Suggest You, Just Go for MCA Course, After Completing Your MCA, You will Definitely Get Good Jobs in Top Companies Like DELL, HP, Infosys, Wipro, TCS And Manny More. So, Please Think Properly And Decide Yourself.

    Re: Career options after BCA. Should I go for a job or MCA?

    In my opinion, you should go for further studies after completing BCA(Bachelor of Computer Application). Because of the reason that doing MCA(Masters of Computer Application) would further enhance your practical as well as professional knowledge. And the other reason is that you can increase your earning potentials after completing this course- for example a person who has completed MCA is more likely to get a job than a person who has completed BCA.

    But if your family is in financial troubles, and want that you should support them , than in that case you can opt for MCA through correspondence mode.So, in my opinion you should first complete your MCA , and then you should search for a job.

    Many of the multi national companies employ people who have competed MCA as such type of individuals have a lot of practical knowledge as well as skills to work in highly professional environment.
    So, in my opinion, you should pursue your MCA as soon as possible as it is in great demand in the corporate world.

    hii, its always better to go to the higher studies, so its better you do MCA.Because many of the top mncs like the wipro,tcs,hcl,hp are asking the mca graduates, who all are having minimum 70% marks.
    you can do the mca in good colleges like the amity ,sharda,ksou,jyoti nivas they are the good colleges will charge a mimimum fees of 30000.If you have any financial problem then you need to go for job, as many mncs are
    looking for the BCA people too.

    Hello...

    First of all you need to decide your interest with which you can choose either of the career option.....also whether the BCA qualification is sufficient for securing a job as per your interest.......As per my suggestion it is better to join for the Masters course as you can specialise in the field of computer...... The chances of getting a good job is higher then simple graduation...... If you have financial constraints then you can join for the job and pursue the MCA course part time which you can get in few institutes like IGNOU, Bharathiar University, University of Madras.

    Its better if you go got higher studies rather then to do job after completing your BCA
    because the growth opportunity after completing BCA is not that much as compare to if
    you go for MBA OR MCA .

    both are equally good depends on your are of interest.many students are doing MBA
    after BCA as it has more scope as compare to that of MCA .

    Re: Career options after BCA. Should I go for a job or MCA?

    The career options for you are limited as you can either go for a job or for
    Post graduate courses. And based on your graduation degree that is BCA ,
    you won't get too many job opportunities . As the software companies and IT
    companies mostly prefer BTech and BE (computer science ) or MCA 's, for
    the post of programmer ,software devoloper etc.
    So you need to study further and take admission in MCA, which will
    enhance your chances to get such jobs. A nd will help you in
    long term as it will help you gaining high level software knowledge also.

    hi
    you can do either of the both . you can do a job or you can go for MCA.
    doing MCA would 1st of all make getting the job easier and secondly you can get good salary .
    If you decide to go for a job this is also good as you get experiences before doing your masters.
    so the ultimate choice is yours.

    2. Birla Institute of Technology Mesra MCA Entrance Exam
    3. LUCSAT= Lucknow University Computer Science Admission Test
    4. NIMCET= National Institute of Technology MCA Common Entrance Test

    Career option after completing BCA ?

    First i inform you that the career is the most important thing of the human life. If you are a student of the BCA and interested in the higher education then you have many option to improve yourself. Here i give you the details information about higher education.

    After completing BCA course if you are interested in the higher education then MCA is the batter option for you because this course is fully related to the computer field and it is also related to the BCA course. So, if you want to take higher study after completing BCA course then MCA is the batter option for you.

    You can also take a job in a company after completing the BCA course. So it is finally depend on you in which field you want to go. I advise you to choose any field by own interest not by another interest. Wish you will get a brightness future.

    Dear friend,

    There are a lot of career opportunities after BCA. You should pursue Masters as it will allow you to earn more money. You can never be sure with the income you get with a bachelor's degree and the person with post graduation is always preferred.

    You can either go for MCA or even MBA if you feel like.

    The choice is upto you.

    Good luck!!
