Jump to: navigation, search

The importance of commerce can never be falsified. It is the very basis for exchange of goods across the globe and development of economies. Countries lacking proper commerce system often find themselves in precarious positions whereby they are unable to generate the required amount of capital that would in turn help its citizens to maintain a high standard of living. The fundamentals of commerce are spread across every industry, discipline and organization. The demand for qualified individuals in different specializations of commerce is also very high. The exciting prospect about graduating with a commerce degree is that it offers endless opportunities for doing valuable work where one will know that the role played has been essential.

So how does one get into a career in the field of commerce? First and foremost one needs to pursue a proper degree such as graduation or masters. Diplomas provide jobs but not careers. Secondly choose the line of specialization such as banking, accounting, export-import according to one’s own interest. With so many institutes offering different options under commerce, it becomes difficult to select the right institute. Add to that the demand of the industry itself which values skilled professionals who have work experience. Sikkim Manipal University- Distance Education (SMU-DE) programme has taken all these aspects in its course offering Bachelor of Science in Information System (BScIS). The course while focusing on the fundamentals and principles of commerce delves in-depth with law, economics, accounting and taxation.
