Often we worry a lot, if there are any other lucrative or meaning-full career options after 10+2(intermediate) beyond IIT-JEE, NEET, CA and ICWA even CAT in long run. Well, for that matter let me guide you to other options through this blog. In recent days, when I had conversation with students, maths student don’t want to look beyond IIT-JEE and similarly, Biology student can’t see past Medicine (NEET) and so is our commerce student who think CA or ICWA can only materialise their career. These all things are nothing more than a sheer lack of awareness.
Let’s talk what are the new age career options for Undergraduate courses. The journey of legal education in India has picked up its substance with setting up of National Law University of India (NLSIU), Bangalore in 1987. The ‘institutionalized mediocrity’ before NLSIU’s introduction has been far left behind and the progress is notable from then onward. CLAT – Common Law Admission Test is a major entrance gateway with few other entrance exams like AILET, LSAT, etc. which lead you to National Law Universities and Other reputed Law Schools of India. Law as career gives multiple options to choose from. Judiciary, Legal Advisers to corporate firms, Legal Journalists, Lecturers, etc. are more lucrative careers than a single conceived career of lawyers in lower and higher courts.
Five Year Integrated Programme in Management by Indian Institute of Management – Indore and Rohtak (IPM-IIM Indore & IIM Rohtak) – is another high end opportunity to study in India’s premier institutes that too an IIM. This course is divided into two segments i.e., BBA+MBA. In modern days management courses are so much in demand. Whether it’s in corporate firm or for life en-devouring entrepreneurship, business administration is all necessary. Similarly, very reputed BBA like courses of Delhi University – Bachelor of Management Studies – BMS, Bachelor of Business Administration Financial Investment Analysis – BBA (FIA), B.A. (Hons.) Business Economics – BBE. These courses are also high in demand these days, where entrance is through DU – Joint Admission Test (DU-JAT).
National Council for Hotel Management and Catering Technology conducts a Joint Entrance Examination (NCHMCT-JEE) for admissions into reputed college offering Hotel Management and Catering Technology courses. Hotel industry is growing leap-forth in India and globally too, and hence specialized personnel are in high demand with thick packages.
Considering the entire above options one should feel how to do it. It’s very simple, definitely simpler than IIT-JEE, NEET, CA and ICWA. Mostly these are aptitude exams which check the adaptability, objective acumen, decision making skills, reasonability and definitely your ‘General knowledge’. See beyond the horizon and you will see a world of lightening opportunity, just keep your eyes and mind open.
