Now that you have completed your graduation in BCA, it is the time for the next step towards your success. But the question now arises, what to do after BCA? Every step in our life gives you a choice. A choice which would have a direct impact on your coming future. After BCA, you have a number of choices before you. You can either go for a job, MCA, MBA or any other course.  Now it's up to you, how 'you' want your life to lead. A single wrong choice can make you suffer for a lifetime. To avoid this mistake, you need to analyze each choice which is in front of you before taking any further step. Since you are now an expertise in many applications in computer language, the best option for you is to go for MCA. A job after BCA can never give a stability and sustainability that MCA after BCA can give. MCA is always valued over BCA as it makes you specialized in a particular field and grooms you as an individual. We can say that MCA has its own value and personal identity.


Why enroll for MCA after BCA?

A master's level program always serves as a booster for one's career. In most of the reputed firms, an applicant with a master's degree of MCA is always preferred over an applicant with a degree of BCA. Big companies such as Microsoft and EssarCommunications recruit the students of MCA. Many other major companies such as Wipro, Vodafone, Infosys, and Satyam give preferences to the MCA students. You can clearly see that the future of students with MCA after BCA is much brighter than the students with only MCA.

MCA is a three-year course which includes six semesters. Duration of each semester is six months. At the end of this program, you would be a specialist in C, C++, Algo and many other computer languages. More details for the same can be found on the official websites of the institutes that offer MCA. The students are also provided placements in their final year in industrial trainings.
