Hello Priya,   Your question is like comparing a product manufactured by say Parle and the same product manufactured by a local brand. Please note this does not mean that a local brand would not be great. Its just that through ages a company has made a niche in the mind of the people and earned their loyalties. Similar is the case with IIT.   Right from syllabus, which is industrial oriented to practical methods of teaching, allowing student to raise questions, conduct research and experiments and learn, to most importantly faculty members.

Dear Aspirant, Having 40% in your graduation and that too of commerce which is a scoring stream is really a problem area. The fact is all courses generally admit students on the minimum percentage of 45-50% only. Your 40% is a problem which you will have to live with. What can you do now should have been thought about when you appeared for the exams of graduation very casually and got so low percentages. However, you can do one thing now. Do M.Com in a good subject which you can score in and get atleast 55%. After this you will be able to get jobs to begin your career at lower level or you may

Hello Honey,  Every professional these days opt for an MBA to achieve a higher position. But ofcourse MBA is not the ultimate.  Please note being a commerce graduate is the first step towards a finance career. Along with graduation, you could opt for certificate courses like CA or CS. After graduation and few years of work experience, you could opt for courses like ICWAI or CFA. or courses related to financial markets or trade markets.  Insurance is another field open for a finance graduate. You could opt for a course in Actuarial science. Hope this helps. Wish you good luck...

Hello Girija,  Its like too many questions together making it more and more complicated. But its better being complicated and questioning now than regreting later. If in the future you have decided to pursue MBA, then a graduation in any field is alright because anyways its just your management certificate that would matter only. But still as said one must pursue higher studies as per their basic qualification.  Hence, pursuing a undergraduate management course like BMS or BBA would be beneficial as you would get an idea about management and what you would face in the future.

Hi Vidhi, Go ahead and do a MBA in tourism. If you do it from a good college; then your future is secure. Do it provided; you love meeting people, organising things and events and of course traveling. Not many persons select such a course.

Your friends and family members (maybe people around you) may say that 'Do HR or Finance'. But, let me warn you that there are enough people doing the same. So, competition is tough; and growth may be slow. It's a sa

Dear Aspirant, Labour Laws, Learning & Development, HR Strategy are some of the fields in which you can specialise in the HR domain. If you are not an HR MBA qualified, doing that is recommended. If you are already an MBA, then a short term executive development programme with one of the top BSchools is recommended. Switching jobs is also recommended if you want growth and change in work environment and culture. Alternatively, think for starting your own recruitment consultancy services which require very less capital but large number of contacts. Best wishes

Dear Aspirant, Firstly your question suggests that the Human Resource field you chose was itself a wrong career decision and therefore now after years you have realised that human resource is no more of interest to you and you now think of shifting to another field. I would have understood if you told me that you wish to diversify or change your domain from Human Resource to another related field, but when you say that you wish to go for Biology, it gives me the impression that you are still not sure what to do in career and life. Doing different things will not lead you anywhere and will comp
