There was a time when mayhem of characteristic confusion of students on the threshold of making a career choice, “getting an engineering degree, then an MBA and finally landing in a banking job” (for instance) proved to be a disaster of a career” – as succinctly portrayed by the character “Rancho” in the movie “3 Idiots”. Although it is proven to be lucrative, today however, ‘Engineering plus MBA’ is slowly becoming passé. Today, the younger generation is much more informed and is more inclined towards careers that have a clear vision right from the beginning.
This brings us to a subject called BCA or Bachelor of Computer Applications. The BCA course is a step in the right direction, if a student wants to pursue a long term career in Information Technology. This course of BCA creates a solid base for the master’s degree and opens up job opportunities on an international level. It is here that specializations like BCA – IB (International Business) make this further focused.
