The Department of Commerce was established in the year 1970 with one teacher and seven students. Over the past five decades, the department has grown and produced tens of thousands of commerce, industry and finance professionals who are presently serving in leading administrative, industrial, business and academic organizations across India and abroad as well.
The department while bringing innovations in its existence Programme has also introduced number of innovative courses based on market demand and changing needs of the society. Accordingly, along with the M.com program, Post graduate Diploma in marketing management, post graduate diploma in Business Management, P.G Diploma in office management, oral coaching for ICWA and ICS were launched in early 80’s and 90’s.
With the beginning of new millennium, the department realized its responsibilities to the growing demands of super specialized finance professionals and launched Master of Finance and Control (MFC) Programme to keep pace with financial sector reforms in the country. Eventually MFC program became MBA (FM) and is taught regularly in the university.
The educational pedagogy of the programs offered by the department emphasize on conceptual understanding of the subjects, development of technical and behavioral skills in students besides exposing them to the practical business realities within and outside the state. In fact, the multipoint contact with the industry is the hallmark of the courses taught through industrial tours, interactions with executives, internship based project reports which give students first hand exposure to the actual business situations.
I take pleasure in stating that many of our students have been placed with the reputed companies across the country including Reserve Bank of India, Multi-commodity exchange, clearing corporation of India Ltd, UTI, BOI, HDFC, Jammu and Kashmir bank, IDBI, ALOK industries, ESSAR steel, Bajaj Allianz, Reliance Insurance etc. to name a few. Many of them hold/ held key positions in Government (like IAS, KAS, KPS etc.), in finance sector and industry (as executives and leading entrepreneurs) within the country. Similarly, our alumni are manning leading positions in organizations in developed countries like USA, UK, UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, etc.
I feel privileged in affirming that our students have the dynamic leadership qualities in delivering in their chosen fields of specializations. With the paradigm shift in the country’s economic and social milieu, the department shall be proactively following its vision and is set to make all out efforts to build a new cadre of Accounting, finance and commerce professionals having intellectual maturity, sense of commitment, ethical behavior and integrity.
I take this opportunity to invite the young inquisiting minds to join the M.COM Programme in this department and become a chosen few to create a niche in the society as responsible, dedicated and conscientious citizens.
