Hello there. I am glad that you approached with this good query to and you can be rest assured that you are at the right platform and will get good guidance. Bachelor in Computer Application (BCA) is a very good course and considering the growth of Info.Tech sector year on year, computer application specialists will be in demand and will keep getting good jobs and salary packages. Hope you know that BCA is a graduation course and is actually a strong foundation building course in computer applications. Just on the basis of BCA you can get jobs but they wont be of good salary package or job profiles. I am happy that you are thinking of doing some thing more after BCA. The best course available for a BCA student is MCA. Master in Computer Application (MCA) is an excellent course and large companies are taking MCA qualified candidates in thousands. MCA is a qualification which is a master level degree and makes you a specialist in computer applications. With growing research and technological opportunities in applications, MCAs are in high demand and are getting very good salaries in companies like Infosys, Cisco, HCL, TCS, etc. Apart from these large companies there are hundreds of medium sized companies which are also giving good salaries at par with the large corporate groups. I would strongly suggest you to pursue MCA full time. Please do not go for part time or distance learning MCA, since a technical based course like MCA if done through distance learning is not recognised by the industry at the time of selection of candidates. Also along side MCA or after MCA you can do courses like CCNA Certification, SAP certifications, which will add tremendous value to your resume and also enhance your knowledge in information technology. Also remember that scoring good percentage in BCA and MCA is very important since good marks will help you get selected faster. If you are not interested in MCA after BCA, you can do MBA Systems or Information Technology from a reputed Institute. BCA and MBA as a combination of qualification is also very good and will help you get jobs in Info.Tech companies in departments like Systems, Maintenance, Testing, etc. With an MBA you can also aim to become Project Manager.

Best Luck

RE: I want know about career option after BCA?


There are lots of job opportunities for graduates in computer application in private sector. Many private sector companies recruit bachelor in computer application graduates. These are mainly the software companies.

The career scope for BCA graduates is private sector is not limited to software companies. Now a days almost every company requires an IT professional and so a BCA professional can also find a job outside the software field. Private sector companies provide very high salaries to BCA graduates. They are appointed as software developers. Initially some companies provide training also.

But i recommend you to choose some good institute from where you can get good career boost as Christ University, Birla Institute of Technology, Lovely Professional University... also it is advisable to go for Post Graduate if that can be possible for you, as your career depends upon this only.
