Study Abroad Options for Commerce Students after 12th

May 2018

Commerce, despite the growing number of engineering colleges in the country, is a popular subject choice among students. Across the different boards of education in India, the Commerce group in higher secondary schools includes papers in Accountancy, Business Studies, Economics, Business Maths, English and the regional language. This opens up a whole world of undergraduate degree options for students. Students who wish to enter the Humanities or the Liberal Arts can choose from Literature to Drama and History to Music and much more.

Just a couple of decades ago, Indian students who aspired to study abroad looked only towards engineering, medicine, and law. The courses offered abroad were not just costly but not aligned with our education system here. However, things have changed considerably since then. With the progress of education and availability of various scholarships opportunities & loans, students are now exploring options beyond the traditional favourites. Nowadays, we see many students opting for undergraduate education in Commerce, Accountancy, and Management in top universities abroad.

There are a number of universities all around the world offering degree and diploma programs in the above fields related to commerce.
