Overall the commerce education in India is provided at three levels in general viz; at higher secondary level, college level and at university level. These three levels have to be viewed and responded differently. When we look at the school education, commerce is not given due importance. Most of the states in India provide the commerce option only after matriculation. Steps can be taken to standardise school level courses by offering the students a course on business. Secondly the under graduate level commerce is facing innumerable challenges for the survival which face competitions with BBA programmes in particular and other UG professional programmers’ in general . Therefore the content and focus of traditional B.Com programme has to be changed and modified to make it more practical and professional. With general subjects, the curriculum should offer specialized subjects as alternatives to students from the very first year of their undergraduate programme. The fact is that the specialization would allow students to focus on things that they are really interested in, as well as get a solid foundation in the basics. Similarly a serious industrial linkage has to be developed to bridge the gap between classroom and the real working world. Apart from this, commerce departments must have a memorandum of understanding with a wide spectrum of companies across various industrial sectors so as to help our students to expose their talent and to identify and select appropriate career options. Finally when one looks at post graduation (M.Com) level, we could see the programme is losing its relevance year after year. Although some universities have diversified their coarse structures in their commerce departments by introducing programs like MFCs , MHROD (Master in human resource and organizational development) but this is not large enough remedy to get over the crises of our curriculum. A student who has finished his masters in commerce still doesn’t know in which subject he has made it.
