“Education is the ability to meet life’s situations” – Dr.John G.Hibben

Every Journey invariably starts with a single step and the Journey to scale great heights needs unflinching grit and relentless efforts. With the same determination we had embarked on a Journey in 1997 by setting up Commerce Department with two courses of one section each i.e. B.Com (General) and B.Com (Computers).B.Com (Honors) was introduced in the year 2003. The department expanded from single section to double sections in B.Com (General) in the year 2002 and B.Com (Computers) in the year 2006.B. Com (Professional) Integrated CA and CS was introduced in the year 2012. B.Com (Information Technology) was introduced in the year 2015. B.Com (International Finance & Accounting) was introduced in the year 2016.Commerce department is the largest department of the College with annual average student strength of 1200.

The College attained Autonomous status in March 2011 and this set the department ablaze, constantly striving to offer relevant and updated courses with practical dimension to provide dynamic business environment with equipped Personnel. The department has adequate well qualified, competent faculty who are dedicated to the academic and overall development of the student community. The teaching highlights of the faculty of our department are Learner- centric, ICT enabled, Project based, continuous assessment and comprehensive & realistic evaluation.

Our aim is to form young men and women of Competence, Commitment Conscience and Compassion. We cultivate in students an uncompromising commitment towards enhancing the quality of life both at the organizational and societal level and also fostering passionate pursuit for academic and intellectual excellence. Our students have brought laurels to the college by participating/winning in various Academic, Cultural, Sports and other competitions at University and National Level.

The most important asset of any civic society is its skilled manpower. Today, education is not just dissemination of knowledge, but equipping the students with appropriate skills and ability to take up new challenges for contributing to the society as well as fulfilling their career dreams. Our college has a well equipped Placement cell and every year many recruiters visit our campus to provide employment opportunities to our students.
