Abstract

The parents of many students while admitting their ward in intermediate classes and undergraduate classes dream to make them Chartered Accountants. CA is most aspired career goal of many students too. There are two entry opportunities for the aspirants to get admission. The first opportunity is soon after twelfth standard and second entry opportunity is after Graduation in any stream. Even if both entries are equally attractive, students prefer to enter to intermediate level after graduation due to the fact that graduation is very important to encash other options too in career path. Thus, CA ambitious students have the challenge to prepare their bachelor degree exams and CA intermediate exam simultaneously during their undergraduate education studies. To solve this constraint of the simultaneous study of two courses with the different curriculum, Srinivas University is starting a B.Com programme in Corporate Auditing with CA intermediate curriculum as well as B.Com syllabus. The syllabus of B.Com – Corporate auditing is developed by combining CA intermediate subjects and regular B.Com subjects with more vigor. The paper contains the details of this new B. Com programme with CA syllabus including the compulsory information technology subjects, soft skill training for competitive exams and 4 months full-time internship with the auditors. We have also discussed the special features, advantages, and benefits of the programme to earn Dual degree/certification by hitting two birds with one stone.

Keywords: B.Com in Corporate Auditing, Curriculum of CA Intermediate & Dual Degree/Certification Through UG Course
