Dear Aspirant,

Definitely Advertising as a career is for any graduate. Hope you are however very confident and confirmed that after BCom you wish to go to Advertising.

There are PG Diplomas / Master degree courses in Advertising / Mass Communication / Media Studies / Media Management. These courses are from one year to two year full time / part time.

You need to check with the Institute in your city which offer university recognised or private courses in Advertising.

Best wishes

Hi Geeta,
Though any Graduate is eligible for pursuing a course in Advertisement.

But my question to you is Why do you wish to pursue advertisement now???

Please note that being a Commerce graduate, you have completely no background of media or creativity.

Though both can be developed, but building a base at this stage gets difficult.
Please note that at the PG level, you would meet Graduates who are media qualified and you may face hassles to establish yourself.
But if you are passionate and hardworking then there is no looking back.

At the same time, be aware that Advertisement or Media field takes longer to settle than just any Graduate and especially with a commerce background.

So make a calculative decision.

Wish you good luckkk...
