I am 27 years old and am pursuing BA final year. I could not pursue graduation at the right age due to personal reasons. Could you please suggest some career oriented course which will help me get a good job soon after graduation?
Your first target should be to complete your BA with a first class. There are many career oriented courses in areas such as hospitality, retail, travel and tourism, sales and marketing, administration, fashion etc., that may help you find a good job. Decide based on your aptitude and interests. You may explore such courses at SNDT University, Sophia College, and Mumbai University’s Garware Institute of Career, Education and Development, to name a few.
I am a SYJC Arts student. I wish to do BMM.Could you please recommend some colleges?
There are more than 50 colleges in Mumbai which offer the BMM programme. Hence you can choose any of these depending upon your convenience. You can get the list and other useful information about BMM at http://www.bmm.co.in/documents/1/2/list-of-bmm-colleges-in-mumbai
I am a class XII student and wish to pursue a Company Secretary (CS) course. Further I want to study Law alongwith it. Is it advisable to also get an MBA degree after this?
CS and Law are an excellent combination and can help you have a great career. I would however suggest that you may consider a five year integrated course in Law available in India today. This would give you a solid career foundation and you can pursue CS concurrently. In case you are keen on an MBA then you could do your MBA first and CS concurrently. Subsequently you may study Law through the distance mode from National Law School of India University, Bangalore, National Academy of Legal Studies and Research, Hyderabad & such institutions of repute.
I am a graduate in accounts and finance management. Could you please suggest what kind of job should I be looking for?
You should do a CA, MBA Finance or atleast an ICWA to build a solid career foundation. You should complete your further studies immediately without a break. In case you still wish to work, you may apply to banks, financial institutions for a role in their finance department. You may get a basic role as an assistant and can then seek career progression over a period of time. However you need to pursue your further studies even in this case to build a good career foundation.
