Information System Management typically focuses on the intersection of business and technology. Job opportunities such as business analyst, IT consultant, systems analyst, database administrator, project manager, or digital marketing specialist.

Which one should you choose is an extremely persona question and would completely depend on your interest areas and the academic (and otherwise rigour) that you plan to take on

My son is doing in II BSc Physics (Hons) in Bangalore in a residential college. At the end of each semester he ends up with two backlogs. This time he has three backlogs and therefore he was not promoted to IIIrd of BSc. He feels very dejected since he says after putting efforts he is unable to clear whereas he is of the view that his classmate with low efficiency than him has cleared the exams. I was having hope that after his third BSC he may pursue in some foreign university. The hopes are being dashed for both of us as a father as well as my son. In the process he will be losing one year. Please guide whether he will be treated as the same candidate as BSC Physics after fourth year if he wants to pursue his MSc Physics or related subject to get admission in India as well as in some foreign university.
Ans: You might not want to hear this.

However, I'm going to tell you this. Maybe physics BSc / MSc. is not the right career choice for your son.

I would strongly suggest you to sit with him and understand what excites him and what does not. Why is this problem recurring and you might come to realise that he never wanted to do the current course in the first place

There may be a better opportunity. There may be a different career path for him

My suggestion right now is that since the current BSc physics honours is not really working out for him, you should not choose to pursue MSC physics

The problem would be same whether you try to pursue it in India or abroad

hope this helps

Ans: I am sorry to hear about your situation.

While it is understandable that losing a job during the pandemic and struggling with addiction can lead to feelings of fear and uncertainty about the future, you need to remember that situations will keep on changing as long as you retain your confidence.

My 2 cents:

1. Seek professional help to overcome addiction and regain control of your life. You can counseling, support groups, and rehabilitation programs.

2. Consider taking online courses or certification programs to enhance your skills and increase your job prospects. Be up to date with the current trends and opportunities.

3. You try to explore financial advising or stock market analysis as an alternate career path. Try going in for certifications and courses with regards to the same. They can help you gain the knowledge and skills needed for this type of job.

4. Leave the past in the past and focus on your strengths and past accomplishments. Be confident in your abilities and remain optimistic.

5. Reach out to friends and family for support and encouragement during this difficult time. They may be able to provide valuable advice or connections that can help you in your job search.

If it all seems too daunting, take one step at a time, seek support, and remain persistent in your efforts to overcome challenges and achieve your goals.

Hope this helps.
