Highlights | What makes us different

While our lecturers go out of their way to make classes as engaging as possible, we also include plenty of practical work and participatory activities to let the students hone their skills against their peers. Here are a few things we do differently:

  1. 01 Exhibitions and Seminars

    We often join hands with the other commerce departments to conduct state-wide and nation-wide exhibition and seminars; where industry experts speak on latest trends, and hold discussions with our students.

  2. 02 Advanced Teaching Aids

    We provide students with two E-commerce labs, one of which is dedicated to tally packages, while the other is used for practical studies in statistics, etc.

  3. 03 Industrial Visits

    Students are taken to various organizations to give them a live demo of every aspect of finance. These visits are often followed by written or practical assignments.

We have created a commerce course that is as comprehensive as it gets, with the intention that our students have a solid stepping stone to the career of their choice. So far, we have been succeeding proficiently.
