Hello there! Glad to see you approach CareerGuide.com for your career confusion and I am sure we will be able to guide you to the right career path. I am assuming that you are a commerce graduate. You seem to be confused in choosing the right master degree for your self. As mentioned by you, you are confused between MCA, MBA and MCom. Hope you understand that all those three courses are very different than each other and all those three courses have separate and distinct career streams. MCA as you may be knowing is a computer / Info.tech related masters course, MBA is a management masters course and MCom is a general advanced level commerce course. Career, job, salary package wise, MCom candidate is regarded at par with a normal graduate. Therefore it is recommended to do MCom just for the sake of a masters degree but not for building a career or job. MCA is computer application course and candidates secure good jobs with good salary packages with good companies. MCA candidates are required in hundreds for low level companies and also for top companies every year. Therefore MCA have good career options. However MCA is of technical field completely and mainly into programming, testing of softwares, etc. MBA is management course, which is generally done after commerce graduation by many. MBA has good job opportunities and good salary packages only if done from good and top ranked institutes. So now choosing among the three entirely depends on your liking, passion, interests. You will have to decide which is better for you. For coming near to the decision, I would suggest you to go for a psychometric test from CareerGuide.com through which you will clearly come to know what are your strengths, weaknesses and how you can choose the right career course for you. This test can be done at home too by your self. When there is too much of confusion, it is always recommended to under go formal aptitude tests to avoid frustration or repenting at a later point of time. I am sure you will be able to decide a good career option soon through this and with a little bit of introspection and speaking to your parents, friends. Best Luck
