Importance of Commerce

It is said that whole life is a big schooling. One is never too old to learn. What is necessary is the willingness to learn. All knowledge is possible through the two eyes - curiosity and desire. Knowledge is like a vast, unfathomable ocean.

Education may be liberal or it may be special. Now a days there are three faculties in higher education namely arts, commerce and science. Young people, now a days, are generally guided by lucrative aims. There main desire is to earn money and become rich. Very few aspire for knowledge for the sake of knowledge-the aim for the older generations. Business education offers good prospects for the ambitious person. Many of them join commerce colleges or take admission in commerce with the aim of getting good jobs.

Economic activities and aims dominate the minds of modern men. Business, commerce and industries are important branches of economic activities. Industries are said to be the backbone of national economy. Trade or business follows the flag. The Englishmen came to India as traders and ultimately became the masters.

Commerce is at the moment a promising subject as a whole. In the present day world, almost every human activity is related with economy, whether in the shape of trade and industry or commerce and banking. Any concern which has transaction of money, a commerce graduate has his footing there.

Secondly, the related fields of commerce are many and varied. Science, in spite of its expanding scope, is yet limited in providing jobs to the teeming millions. The scope of science is all the more limited in backward countries like Pakistan. The Humanities subjects are also not very promising from the profession point of view. Arts subjects appear to have lost their worth from earning point of view.

In view of above stated facts, it maybe said that commerce graduates have some what better prospects in Pakistan.
