  1. Very good post, Himanshu. MBA is the most favoured option after B.Com. ITM Institute offers mba in finance and the course is called executive masters of financial markets. The course offers the students real-time experimental learning in financial markets.

    • It totally depends on you. It is always better to go for a degree course rather than diploma as it will give you higher growth options. Since you have already completed your graduation you can go for masters or search for jobs. However, if your priority is to do an immediate job, a diploma course will definitely help.

    • Yes! you can, It needs maths as a 12th std subject . The criteria are different from college to college. but for MCA from the most prestigious examinations like NIMCET (for NITs) needs at least 60% in bachelor’s and maths in 12th.
