The role of Commerce education in our day to day lives has undergone a paradigm change over the last couple of decades especially after the onset of the information age. Previous perceptions were that after graduating in Commerce, the only jobs obtainable were accountants and office secretaries, which were considered as clerical jobs. These archaic concepts have changed with the opening up of new possibilities in career for Commerce professionals as fiscal managerial & administrative positions beckon in MNCs and Corporates. The phenomenal professional needs happening due to globalisation and liberalisation have also immensely influenced the scope in Commerce careers. Commerce graduates now have a wider scope that span varied job roles from finance and human resources to marketing and logistics not to forget academia and research.
