CO-ORDINATOR’S MESSAGE

“Education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change the world”.

Our department started the journey in the year 2015. We always focus on providing the best education and creating professional leaders and entrepreneurs. This is being highlighted in the mission statement evolved for the department. Right from the beginning commerce and management were areas of preference for many students. As such we had full-fledged classrooms every year.

The main objective of the Department is to provide holistic education. We are designing programmes intended to update the knowledge and to meet the changing requirements of the curriculum. We encourage our students to organize events such as intra – departmental management meet, group discussions, quiz competitions, etc. Apart from this various workshops and seminars are being conducted to enhance their knowledge. A poster designed by each on the research topic and individual presentation was carried out based on their project work. The Department organized an inter-collegiate management meet as part of the mega event “IGNITRON”. The Department is conducting Industrial Visits to B.Com students. This helped the students to get first hand and practical experience related to the concerned field. A two-day startup lab organized in association with CARVE labs was a very useful session.

We are also motivating the students to participate in management meet organized by other colleges and they secured many laurels being the champions on many occasions. With the motive of creating social responsibility charity visits have been organized for all the students to centers of social commitments. We can assure that our students are responsible citizens capable of facing any challenges in today’s world.
