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:
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.
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.
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.
Our efforts at creating a complete academic experience pay off with the most pleasant of surprises. Here’s just a few:
Nikhat Banu represents India in Commonwealth Table Tennis championships held at New Delhi. She wins the singles in Al-Fazr Cup ITTF Circuit International tournament held at Tehran, Iran and reaches the quarterfinals in the doubles.
