Hello My Dear Aspirant,

Great Great Great Question! I really liked and I would like to appreciate your thought process! Also I am glad that you chose to approach us at CareerGuide for seeking guidance on this wonderful question, very rarely asked by students.

Private Questions

I am an Educationist and have been into career counselling for more than seven years now and have counselled many students from diverse fields of commerce / management / law / banking / finance, etc and have really not seen anybody till now asking such a good question. I am also into teaching and interacting with hundreds of students every year.

Basically you know what? Commerce without Maths is not a problem at all. It is perceived that without maths career in the commerce field is not possible or gets tough. But according to my experience it is really not like that. I have seen many students from commerce without maths and still doing excellently.

It is perceived that students wishing to do professional courses like Chartered Accountancy, Cost Accountancy, Financial Analysis, MBA Finance, Finance related courses, need to mandatory have the knowledge and the subject of maths in their commerce graduation. However the reality is not that.

Courses like Chartered Accountancy and other courses listed above (except Financial Analysis) do not require much of typical maths but of maths related to transactions and totally, percentage, ratios, etc. No high level og maths is required for commerce courses frankly.

However as everybody says that having a good command over maths and English is always good and helpful. But I wold say that it is not mandatory to make careers.

Career courses like Company Secretaryship, Law (LLB), Human Resource, Marketing, etc do not require maths mastery but a little of maths awareness, thats it!

Disadvantages of not having Maths:

  1. You may not be able to grasp the financial analysis courses like CFA since this involves high maths command

  2. You may not be able to find comfort in business intelligence, data mining, data warehousing courses and jobs

  3. You may not be to find comfort in doing things about financial planning, financial forecasting, budgeting, etc.

It is really up to you how you look at it. According to me, I do not see any issue if a commerce graduate is not having maths. But yes, basic knowledge and command on maths is VERY MUCH DESIRED.

Best Luck

Dear Friend

Commerce is the another side of coin for math which is conceptualized by mathematical tools. I guess you have fear-psychosis about math and inspire of knowing the things you do not want to take it up. Commerce has different approach to solve the issue at complex level and give the smooth direction which makes you the smart banker, chartered accountant or company secretory. These are all the like minded job which require different mathematical skill unlike the core operational and statistical maths which seem to be an essential modules for engineering and other technical jobs. So be assured you are going to enjoy commerce based on economical dynamics where numerical will be required.

I guess you are going to option commerce at 12th level where course structure is very much fixed and common for all commerce students so look at the course basket and then analyse the suitability with and without maths. I do not think commerce course structure asks you prerequisites of maths as it has its own designed module where mathematical explanation is given to the certain extent at basic level. As you know no subject has disadvantage until and unless taken for further study option which will be the source of your result and future career. So never discuss if and but regarding any subject which is not involved into your main stream. Commerce stream has well defined curricula given by the esteemed academicians where your interest and career have been taken into the consideration.

Once you join the commerce course then start to think about the future specialization which will be the determined by your interest and suitability. As you are living in economical era and there is a huge demand of commerce and economics manpower not only in India rather entire world is having shortage of such manpower due to the global employment, stock exchange, market and commerce, banking and finance etc. Keeping all these requirements in mind explore the suitable specialization at bachelor level which will decide the fate.

My final advise to you to do the commerce without any pre-occupied thought of maths and something else otherwise it could be misleading and negative for you. Just analyse the course structure and then monitor your future.

Good luck
