I am doing my graduation in B.Sc. with Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science as my optionals. As I have only one year to complete my degree I am very much worried about my career. Being a Computer Science student I am very much interested in Information Technology and want my career in 'IT'. As I am interested in Business, I want to know what are the IT Oriental Business and the qualification for that. Recently I have heard about courses like i) Master of Computer Management (MCM), ii) Postgraduate Diploma in Management (PGDM-IT and Marketing). I want to know more about these courses and other courses of Management in IT regarding syllabus duration, fees etc. And also the colleges, which offer those courses any where in India. Please take my letter seriously and give me some suggestion regarding my future studies.
