Hello My Dear,
BFM along with Company Secretary would be very much fine as a combination since you will be exposed to finance in BFM and in CS to law/secretarial.

I am glad that you approached the right platform of CareerGuide at the right time for seeking guidance to your query.

The decision to pursue a professional course like Company Secretary ship is a very good decision and will definitely go a long way to make you successful.Pursuing BFM and Company Secretary course together would not be of any problem study wise and time wise. Just you need to schedule your studies so that no course is left back or unattended or less focused.

 

A word of caution here to my Dear, that generally we lose the focus on your graduation studies while studying for a professional course. This should not happen with you, see to it that graduation studies are equally important and is the basic foundation qualification which one should do seriously.

Also another option I would like to just suggest for your thinking...

If you are interested in finance since you have opted for BFM, then why not go for Chartered Accountancy course instead of Company Secretaryship course?

CA course and BFM course are compatible and the studies initially are very much related. Doing these two courses alongside, will help you either ways in the course and also not make it hectic and there will be equal focus too. Just think about it!

However BFM and CS course can surely be done with ease.

Best Luck
