ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
The project that we have undertaken required a lot of information gathering and guidance which has been provided by various people at various stages of the project. We are thankful to all the 240 students who have spared their valuable time for us from their respective busy schedules and provided their responses to fill up the survey questionnaire. We are really very thankful to them for providing the required information based on which a major portion of my analysis depends. Also we acknowledge the efforts of all the people behind the success of the various websites and the social networking sites which proved to be the major sources of data collection to us as many of the respondents couldnt be directly contacted. Finally we would like to thank the person, who gave us the opportunity to work on such a wonderful project, own teacher, Mr. BHUVANESH GOYAL. We really thank him for stressing on collecting first hand information; otherwise this project would not have been so much interesting. And the blessings of our parents and the almighty which were always there to help us in times of any difficulty.

INTRODUCTION
The survey which we have undertaken studies the various preferences among 240 graduating students in Delhi from various different backgrounds like science, commerce, and humanities. We have tried to find out the percentage of people who want to pursue higher studies in various fields. Also according to our survey many people want to opt for some job experience before they actually go for higher studies. We have studied all the career options available like Company Secretary, Masters in Business Administration, Indian administrative services, Chartered Accountancy, etc and also the various coaching institutes for the same. We asked the students if they would prefer some coaching for the above mentioned courses and also their preference of institutes for the same. The purpose of this was to know the trends prevailing in the market. Further the students were asked to rank the parameters on a scale of 1-5 on which they based their decision to join a particular coaching institute. The various factors which the students kept in mind while selecting a coaching institute are as follows: y y y y y BRAND NAME FEE STRUCTURE PAST RESULT FACULTY MENTOR-MENTEE RELATION

SCOPE OF STUDY

The survey report covers the important issue of whether to opt for higher studies after graduation or to first take up a job to get some experience.

The preparation for such courses has to be very systematic with most of the serious students opting for coaching for the same. The various available coaching institutes have also been listed down and also based on different parameters like brand value, fee structure, faculty and past results, the most sought after coaching institutes have been identified.

LIMITATIONS
y

Only 250 students were questioned keeping in mind the time and money constraints that we had.

Many people couldnt be contacted directly, so indirect methods of data collection were used like mails, smss, etc.

Many opted for job as their preference after graduation which led to the incomplete analysis and lack of data for further questions.

y y y

Many people were reluctant to give their personal details for the survey. Many might have given random answers rather than thinking genuinely for the same. Since we asked for their ranking in 1 of the questions, accurate analysis of the preferences was really difficult.

METHODOLOGY
In total 240 students were surveyed upon by us. Each member was given the duty to collect data from 60 students. Various modes of data collection that we used were:1. through Mobile Phones 2. Facebook 3. E-mails 4. Personal visits After the surveys were filled, they were sorted out according to various factors and then further analyzed to know about the preference of students after graduation. Many different tools were made use of like pie-charts, bar diagrams, multiple column charts, etc, to analyze the results thereof. Finally we have tried to come up with the conclusion giving a summary of all the data collected and also a summary of the preferences of the students.

CONCLUSION
y Most of the students are interested in higher studies rather than take up a job after graduation. As many as 75% students desired to pursue higher studies. The most sought after career after graduation was found to be MBA with 65% graduates opting for the same. However keen interest was also shown in the fields of IAS and CA/CS.

Almost 80% students opted for coaching rather than self study. This clearly shows how much diversified is the market for coaching institutes and also the scope which they have in the current market scenario.

The most successful institutes in the field of MBA Coaching are TIME, IMS and Career Launcher. Due to their high brand value, most of the students opted for these institutes only when asked for their preferences for the same.

The factors which the students thought upon before joining a particular institute were studied and the results showed high preference towards the brand value, fee structure and past results.
