Which course after plus two commerce?

Industry Oriented Integrated Course

Even after the global pandemic like Covid, the Indian economy is growing and future looks really bright. It is sure that the job market is going to grow like better than the pre covid period.

But it is true that every growth comes with a change, the change for good.

The global economy is growing selectively and in some developed markets, grip of recession is growing.

What will happen in such layoff situations?, this is the question most of the people ask. The answer here is whenever the recession or the fear of recession happens, there will be lay offs and most of them will be unexpected.

Who will be more affected by layoffs?

Mostly people does not have any professional qualifications, in understandable terms the generalists will be thrown out easily than the specialists. So we need to differentiate between academic learning and professional learning.

Who is an academic learner?

Academic learner is a person who learns the subject to the deep. He understands the subject theoretically without any life time scenario encounters. He will be able to answer most of the questions asked but may not be able to handle a situation. The advantage for such a person is he will answers for the most of the questions on the subject of expertise, but may not be able to handle a situation. He can do any work, but when we look from the enterprise angle, they need somebody who can do their work as a specialist, especially in recession situations.

Who is a professional learner?

A professional learner is a person who have academic qualification along with practical knowledge. It means a person who is an academic learner along with proper exposure to practical scenario so that they will be able to solve the problems independently and work towards the growth of the enterprise where he is working.

Some of the statutory qualifications awarded by the Government of India are explained here in this article, it does not mean that these are the only courses available, you will definitely have more courses available according to your choices.
