Choosing Company Secretary as a PG course

By Niharika C ·
Hi there,
I have completed my Engineering in Computer Science and I am currently working in a multi-national software company.
I would like to know the possible opportunities I might have if I take up Corporate Secretaryship as a post-graduation course. I know this sounds like a very rare combination career, hence I would like to have a general opinion on whether my knowledge in computer science can be applied/can be useful in this field and also on the various opportunities that would be available considering my technical background. Thanks in advance!

A solid foundation in Law and Accountancy.

Otherwise you'll flounder and fail.

In the states, a 'secretary' is a very low-level administrative job.

The equivalent position here is a 'Corporate Secretary', which is a board-level compliance and governance specialist. Typically a lawyer, and in most cases the Corporate Secretary is the firms' General Counsel.

Now to answer you question: In my opinion having technical knowledge in a technology-driven company is vital.

How can you make good policy decisions and gain the support and respect of technical managers if you cannot speak their language?

In the states, the equivalent track would be getting a computer science undergrad and an MBA. Which can work out very well, I'm told.
