Challenges in Commerce education

   The current condition of commerce education is such that it lacks employability skills and does not enable students to face complexities of business. If somebody will ask me a question, “Does commerce education offer good employability skills and talent?” The answer will be a straight ‘No’. When I say ‘No’, what are the reasons for saying no? The most important reason being lack of communication skills, lack of analytical skills, lack of confidence, lack of ability or capacity to work for long hours, lack of dynamism etc. The result is that either the students are not employable or they are employed but with below standard salary packages. In order to break away from such situations, commerce students resort to an MBA, MMS or PGDM programme.

To overcome these challenges:

1. High priority should be given on developing a proper board for drafting the syllabus.

2. Making regular changes as per the need of the industry and global markets.

3. Making English the compulsory medium of instruction after standard XII.

4. Case studies for developing analytical and presentation skills.

5. Encouragement to apply for practical training through internship programmes.

6. Exposure to real industrial problems and solutions.

7. Exposure to successful corporate strategies and reasons for failures.

8. Exposure and analysis of successful global strategies.



Some students prefers higher studies such as M.Com., M.B.A and MSW or they may go for joining law related courses.


Some students prefer family business and some may choose either new sole trading concern or partnership concerns with their own knowledge and funds else they go for borrowed funds for their capital.
