Message from Head of the Department

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” –  Nelson Mandela

The Department of Commerce and Research centre seeks to combine excellence  in education with service to the industrial and Commercial sector.      As Head of the Department, I firmly believe   that we would maintain high academic standards focusing on  student centered teaching-learning methodology, which would definitely enable our students  to face  challenges of life with our holistic approach in teaching and learning. We would ensure that students inculcate and indulge in extracurricular activities to shape them as better leaders of tomorrow so as to face the challenges of the competitive world and meet the needs of the stakeholders in the industry.

The department  encourages  exposure in the corporate world through internship projects with reputed organizations.  In their curriculum, they are encouraged to take up mini projects to streamline and bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical experience. They also undertake projects benefiting local industries highlighting  local problems. These projects enable them to understand the relevance of  teamwork.

 Our experienced faculty are the strong pillars of the department and they  ensure  quality of the curricular, activities of the students and help   to manage the quality of  education.   We are confident that our current curriculum has enabled the overall development of budding managers to come up with the expectations of the corporate world.

We are confident that the students would definitely hold high the creditability of the department by showcasing high professionalism in their respective field of competence. On behalf of the department I wish you a blissful  journey in our institution.
