Abstract


The paper focuses on the behavioural aspect of undergraduate students who want to pursue higher educational especially professional courses and deals with how students perceive full time and part time courses along with course fee structures. This also shows the perception of students regarding job guarantee along with course duration. The finding in the paper gives a clear idea that job guarantee is an important factor while opting for professional courses irrespective of gender. The investigation here finds that if students were offered a professional course that would actualize their dreams, they were even willing to migrate to other cities. The paper also investigates preference order of sample students' career options in some selected sector among FMCG/CD, Retail, Manufacturing, IT, and BPO.
