| Who we are and what we do
The Department of Commerce (Honours) was started in the year 1991 with the intention of adding to the growing pool of economic leaders with some of our own. Along with providing the most comprehensive-yet-specialized commerce course in the market, we bolster our excellent curriculum with E-commerce labs, AV rooms, and the best faculty for your buck.
Some key statistics for the Department of Commerce (Honours):
we offer 1 UG course of 3 years for B. Com. Honours
Admissions to our B. Com Hons. course happens through the common Loyola admissions route.
| What makes us different
While turning our students into future economists and entrepreneurs is a priority, we find it even more important to help them grow into well-rounded individuals who use their commerce-based powers for the greater good. Here are a few ways we try:
Students are encouraged to take up final-year projects based on social causes such as women entrepreneurs, girl-child education, role of NGOs, etc.
02Leadership & Presentation
Guest lectures, seminars, and group discussions are conducted regularly to train our students to be firm in their opinions and yet be able to put them across artfully.
Students get to work on original projects with some of the best companies. This helps them gain experience and also pads their resumes amply before they even create their first.
Young minds can be made greater by association with great minds. We ensure that our students get to interact regularly with people of great academic and professional stature in the industry.
