B.com(H) is a 3-year undergraduate degree designed to inculcate Business Acumen in students. The course includes subjects like cost accounting, financial
accounting, law, tax, economics, organisational behaviour, management, etc. 

Through this course, one can specialize in fields like Accounts and economics.
Students can also pursue courses like C.A., C.S., ICWA along with B.com(H).

Some students confuse B.com(H) with B.com(prog.) and perceive them to be equivalent. But the difference lies in the fact that B.com(prog.) gives only an overview of all the subjects taught in the Honours course and ofcourse Honours provides specialization and core knowledge about the subjects. Thus, honours can be seen as wider in scope and the industry demand for this course is relatively more.

As the competition among students is rising, the cut offs every year are also rocketing high and hence, it is becoming tougher to get admissions in a course like B.com(H) in top colleges of delhi university. So a student aiming for B.com(H) from colleges like SRCC, Hansraj, Hindu, LSR has to secure atleast a bove 95% in XII and also having Maths is a pre-requisite one has to take care of.

As far as the scope of this course is concerned, B.com(H) has a great scope but one should keep one thing in mind that just after doing graduation one cannot expect to get the best jobs in the market but one can gain experience and eventually grow in the industry by taking up a job.

Coming to the Jobs!

What one looks for while taking up a job? Perhaps the profile or the salary package a company is providing. But what we must be looking up for is the area in which we have our interest. If you are interested in work which involves processing of payrolls, administration of accounts or insurance, you can probably join a KPO(knowledge process outsourcing) at entry level positions. If you are good at figures, then you can join accounts assistant or auditing department of various firms.

Therefore, it would not be wrong to say that B.com(H) definitely provides an edge over other commerce courses and prepares you for many job profiles simultaneously but what differentiates one student from the other is the application of that knowledge.
