All you want to know about BAF

WHAT IS BAF?

The University of Mumbai started the Bachelor of Commerce

(Accounting & Finance) course in 2003-04.

The main aim to introduce this course was to improve self-employment and provide benefits to the organizations by providing them with suitable trained persons in the field of Accounting & Finance by way of interaction, projects, presentations, industrial visits, practical training, Job orientation and placements..

As per the University rule a candidate is eligible for BAF is he/she has passed Std.XII Examination of the Maharashtra Board of Higher Secondary Education or its equivalent and secured not less than 50% marks in aggregate at first attempt (45% in case of reserved category).

WHY BAF?

Well as we know that finance is one of the major aspect for every individual as well an organization, not only the sources of finance are important but also its optimum utilization and planning is required to increase the profitability. At the same time accounting helps to maintain clear records of all financial transactions which help’s for smooth functioning of organization

A BAF student acquires specialized knowledge for the same and further the candidate can enhance their knowledge by pursuing M.COM in Finance or MBA in Finance and can also opt. for CA (Chartered Accountant)

ADVANTAGES OF BAF

  • Professional degree

  • Better accounting knowledge compared to B.COM

  • More job opportunities as accounting and finance is heart of every organization

DISADVANTAGES OF BAF

  • Subjects like import export trade, commerce etc are neglected.

  • Lower management knowledge skills compared to BMS

 

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

As a BAF student I would recommend a candidate to opt. for BAF as it is more over based on practical knowledge. If one opts. For regular B.COM the candidate gets very basic and part of knowledge in management as well as accounting. BAF being a professional course has more emphasize on accounting so the candidate gain a proper base and understanding in Accounting field, BAF has a good scope to make a career in accounting and finance in addition to it candidate can opt. for CA side by side or after completion of third year to acquire in-depth accounting knowledge
