Rather than going for just MBA go for MBL Masters in Business and Law..... This is a unique program offered by A renowned law college in Bangalore. They have a distance learning program is also available if you do not want to shift to Bangalore.

This unique program combines both law as well as management subects which are very necessary to learn in order to do a job in any corporate sector.

Since this a distance learning program you can also doa CS side by side. I must tell you based in your query i believe you have interest in a subjects which are corporate driven.
I also must inform you that till today LLB/LLM along with CA/CS is the rare xombination you will find in any of th CV. Adding Management subjects to this will make you different from crowd.

MBL is available in NLSIU, National Law School of India University in Bangalore and ranked as top law school in India.

I hope the information provided by me is going to help you choose correct course for yourself.

All the very best for your future.

Hello There!

I am glad to see you approach CareerGuide with your genuine and good query. Professional courses like Company Secretaryship, Chartered Accountancy, Cost Accountancy are the ones which I personally like and have counselled many students from this field before and therefore I am glad to be here to answer your genuine query.

You would like to know whether Company Secretary course is good and its scope and also if MBA is best option or not.

Let me answer one by one.

MBA is definitely a good course which can be done after any graduation. However looking at the current market scenario, MBAs are plenty but there are no jobs for all MBAs. MBAs from top institutes only get good jobs and job profile. These days doing MBA has become a very general thing and there is nothing to prove that you are different that others in terms of skills and knowledge. In fact, doing an MBA is recommended now only after gaining some years of work experience, since after that you will find beneficial to do MBA and implement its learning in the job place immediately.

Int his world, there is nothing called as 'best option'. It is you who is best for a particular field or stream or career and there fore it essential to know what are your strengths, weaknesses, passion, interests, lickings, abilities, personality, capabilities, etc. These things actually a very much required to choose a particular field for career and only then you can get successful in that particular field.

Company Secretary course is one of the professional courses in India like CA, CWA, CFA, LLB, etc. Company Secretary course will make you a specialist in secretarial law, compliance, procedures, conveyancing, liasioning, drafting, reporting, etc. Therefore if you are interested in clerical and secretarial work then Company Secretaryship course is best suited for you.

Along with Company Secretaryship you may either pursue LLB course or MBL course from National Law Universities. CS plus legal qualification is the most demanded combination in the industry since many years.

However with CS there would not be any use of an MBA qualification directly.

I recommend you to also think for undergoing a psychometric assessment from us through our downloadable tools. This test can be donate your home by your self and you can know all the above aspects which I mentioned to make sure that you are made for a particular field or not.

Best Luck Dear..

Good to hear that you are interested in doing a professional course like the MBA or CS. I shall explain on them both here in detail.

Choosing an MBA: Masters in business and administration is a professional management degree and is often suitable for people who have a minimum of three year work experience and are also aiming to progress in their career ladder by completing a professional qualification. An MBA will offer promotional status in job as well as with better hike in annual pay. It also takes a person completely into management side of a business rather staying at technical side. If you are interested in business, managing people, managing finance, influencing people and managing budgets then this is the right course for you. If you are with a minimum of three years work experience then you can be suitable for general MBA with any specialisation. Students often have Human resources, marketing, operations management, project management, supply chain management, accounts and finance as choice subjects and studying one of them, you get to be specialised in that particular stream. Alternatively if you are a person with more than ten years of work experience, then you are highly suitable to study Strategic management or the Leadership MBA. An MBA is a professional accreditation for students willing to work in business and management. To study an MBA, students should ideally complete a bachelors degree in any subject and hold at least two-three years of work experience. After this, you can prepare for CAT/ MAT/ XAT exams and depending on your score you can be placed at top B-schools.

The second option that you have quoted is the Corporate Secretaryship CS program. This is a program that ideally matches only commerce student and not students from any other background. Therefore to be eligible to study for a CS, you should definitely study Commerce subjects at school level and then study Bcom with company secretaryship at college level. It is a three year bachelors degree. There are many stages in aiming for a CS career.
  • Students with 12th level pass: After completing 12th, you can appear for Foundation program in CS.
  • Students with Bachelors degree: After completing Bachelors degree, you should undergo two stages of program known as executive program and professional programme. To appear for CS exams, you should contact Institute of Company Secretaries of India, as they are the ones conducting this exam.

You can choose to either do an MBA/ CS. But if you are interested in going into management side, MBA is suitable. If you are interested in Commerce and secretaryship then CS is best for you. Hope this helps.
