Hello My Dear...

This is the perfect time at which you have asked us this query. I compliment you for deciding to approach us at CareerGuide for seeking clarification to your excellent query. I am also more happy to answer this since I am myself an Inter CS qualified person. I would also like to appreciate that being in the 11th level, you have thought about your career goal and looking to have information about it sincerely. Keep it up my dear..

You have taken admission in Commerce and now planning to do Company Secretaryship course. This combination is an excellent combination my dear and you are very much at the right career path. I am happy to see your liking for company secretary course.

Company Secretary course can very well be done along with your commerce graduation. You need to go to your locally located ICSI Chapter and fill the form for Foundation Course of ICSI. However you will have to wait till you complete your HSC Commerce with minimum 50% marks in aggregate. BCom Hons and Company Secretary course CAN BE DONE simultaneously and in fact there are thousands of students who opt for the Company Secretary / Chartered Accountant / Cost Accountancy course along side the graduation.
However a word of caution for you my dear... DO NOT NEGLECT graduation studies at all. Your Commerce graduation is a solid foundation for your post graduation ahead in life. It happens that since the professional courses like CA, CS, CWA require lot of hard work and time, students neglect the graduation studies. This should not happen with you my dear, is what I feel.

Therefore score good marks in HSC Commerce and then you can apply for Company Secretary course and do graduation and CS course simultaneously.

Best Luck

Greeting's for the day!!!

Everybody has some career goals in mind. Somthing they are thinking of doing or becoming. For commerce students, there are many avenues where they can build up a good career in future. Company Secretary Course is one such course which can be taken as a profession.

Stages to become a Company Secretary:
the student who would like to join the course after 10+2 pass or equivalent has to undergo three stages to pursue the Company Secretaries course. i.e.:
1. Foundation Programme
2. Executive Programme
3. Professional Programme

The student who would like to join the course after passing the graduation has to undergo 2 stages of the Company Secretaryship. i.e.
1. Executive Programme
2. Professional Programme

- Foundation programme which is of eight months in duration can be pursued by 10+2 pass or equivalent students of Arts, Science or Commerce Stream (Excluding Fina Arts)
- Executive Programme can be pursue by a Graduate of all streams except Fine Arts.
- Professional programme can be pursued only after clearing the Executive Programme of CS Course.

Roles and Responsibilities:
1. An expert in Company, Corporates, and Security Laws
2. A Vital link between the company and its Board of Directors, Shareholders, Government and Regulatory Authorities.
3. A Conscience seeker of the company
4. A Compliance officer of the company

The CS has very wide scope in the Industries now a days.
A qualified Company Secretary has openings in industry and also has scope for practicing as an Independent Professional.

CS course offers lucrative career options. After successfully completing this course, you can get into multi national companies for jobs. CS acts as a compliance officer who may provide legal advises in area of Corporate Laws, Capital Market, Corporate Governance, etc.

Job Opportunities exists in both private and public sector companies. Some of the areas where you have chances of jobs are SEBI, Stock Exchange Markets, etc. A qualified CS can also practice independently. Many government companies also employ CS such as AAI, ONGC, State Infrastructure Development Corporations, etc.
