About the Department

Commerce is a field that is continuously evolving, changing and developing and thus, there is a need to be well-informed and proficient in the basics of business, finance and the entire field of trade and commerce. Due to intense competition it is necessary to offer programs that enhance the analytical and understanding ability of students and build in them competence to secure diverse and quality job opportunities to ensure a bright future. Commerce in itself has vast scope and there is a necessity to be aware of its components.

An institution that offers higher education needs to churn out students who not just excel in their academics but extend their learning to frontiers beyond the regular curriculum. It is necessary for the institution to identify the talent gap between the abilities of the students and what the corporate world really needs and enable the learners to acquire the entire technical, professional and leadership skills required to face the challenging environment.

To nurture inquisitive and evaluative abilities among students.
To increase the relevance of courses offered through contemporary curriculum updated regularly and provide intensive training for competitive examinations.
