About the programme

In the context of today’s globalised economy, it has become increasingly important to develop an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the contemporary business environment and our B.Com Programme has been streamlined to reflect just that. Its aim is to construct a strong foundational grounding in core subjects such as Accounting, Taxation, Economics, Statistics, Auditing, along with a choice of Cost accounting, Finance, Marketing and Human Resources, studied in the fifth and sixth semester. The Programme is challenging, yet, rewarding for students with high aspirations. Our students have been sought after by employers for their excellent knowledge, skills and attitude, giving them an edge over their peers from other institutions. The B.Com Programme of the college is rated amongst the top 10 in the country. (India Today, AC Nielsen Survey 2016).

Student seminars, workshops and conferences are organized through the even and odd semesters,

      disciplines to be seamlessly integrated into the framework
They will be trained in Tally, Excel and Advanced Excel to be on par with industry standards locally
      and in the global arena.
Students connect meaningfully with the working world through regular field trips.
      These visits provide students a thorough understanding of business skills and cultural
      education to make a mark in the industry.
In addition, students are encouraged to join the college clubs and take up credit certifications
