We all are familiar with choosing the appropriate stream before high school. SEE has been a threatening exam since every long for the students whereas the choice of science, commerce or humanities has been a concern for the students as well as parents beforehand.  But the irony is SEE seems to be a difficult task but then its a gateway to life further because it allows us to choose the stream that we prefer but the major subjects can be entered only after the high school.

As we choose management stream in our high school, we are given choice for some subjects like business studies, business maths, computer, marketing, economics, hotel management, and travel and tourism. Besides, most of the subjects are a compulsion for us.

In this case, the major destiny for the students can be a manager or an administrator which has their owns status and importance in the field of business society.
