Which Option Is Better In B.Com Degree: Accounting, Finance, Human Resource Management, Marketing?
or Insurance? Better in terms of getting a job easily as well as getting a well paying job?
Based on what I've seen, accounting is the best option. The others are expendable in an economic downturn.
There's always a need for accountants and they generally command a decent wage regardless of the company's fiscal health. Further, accountants can cross over into other areas more easily than vice versa. Conversely, people in management or human resources are totally lost when it comes to the intricate details of an accountant.
Accountants determine a company's profit and loss and forecast P&L well into the future. For this reason they are considered a firm's backbone and are not likely to be downsized.
Business communications is a nebulous area. So learn the basics well. Accounting as a specialty would be a good career enhancer.
Forget "Human Resource Management". That is a fluff job so companies can meet their diversity quotas. Many of those jobs will go as the economy tanks further. Consider what foreignpress said -- accounting. Marketing is iffy. Sales would be very good for those than can actually do it. Insurance requires selling, and it involves a "product" that most people buy reluctantly.
HR has become a must-have for every company in the West, and if you have any languages then your employability will be sky-high should you wish to head overseas with your degree and education.
Whether you're a people person or a numbers person, HR is a broad occupation with many specialties - and best of all, it always pays well. Always. For some reason, no-one wants to annoy the guys in charge of payroll or who have every single detail of your life in their vault.
If you're creative, go for marketing. If you're numbers-obsessed, go for insurance/accounting. If you're practical, go for finance. Whatever it is, make sure you're confident about what career you can/will do when you're done - it may be an expensive mistake otherwise.
First, I would have to say -- what are you interested in? No matter how many people are hiring accountants, you may have zero interest in that. It really depends on what you want to do. Four years of number crunching may be your thing or maybe marketing is more up your alley. This should be the number one factor. ANY business degree is valuable.
After that, school choice should be the next step. I think this is something that will require research on you part on what your interests are. In addition, you could always double major or get a minor in something else. In the world of hiring, experience becomes more and more important than what you specialized in college.
if you're unsure of what you really want, i'd say go for management. This is the "umbrella" discipline that explores the other studies you mentioned - accounting, finance, human resources, and marketing.
All of the following are popular as far as getting a job and for the pay - that may also depend on years of experience and what entry level you enter into the company.
I feel that B.Com with a major in FInance can fetch you a better job. It does not mean that the other subjects are lesser. But I feel you need to understand your strengths and then choose the subject. This will help you to master the subject and then you have a good choice in terms of choosing the best job opportunity.
Reckon, its Important, that you do, what you love ...
For money and fame are not all, there is to life ... these are just the means, to a comfortable living ...
So do, what you love most, by adopting it as the means of livelihood ... and you will lovingly put in the needed labor ...
Remember ... Sincere Hard Work, will never fail you in life ...
