Department of Commerce and Management Events
The Department of Commerce and Management has recorded consistent improvement in its academic, research and development and placement performance. It offers a range of innovatively designed programs whose curriculum are constantly updated to meet the changing requirement of the industry and also to meet the needs of major stakeholders. We believe that our students have been well accepted in their job profiles and have consistently exceeded expectations of the corporate world.
During study at the department, the students are encouraged to get hands-on experience in the corporate world through internship study, research projects with reputed organizations. In their curriculum they are encouraged to take up mini projects and minor projects to supplement theoretical knowledge with practical experience. They also undertake projects benefiting local industries or dealing with local problems. These projects enable them to understand the relevance of working in a group and also help them to realize the finer aspects and importance of teamwork.
We also encourage students by participating in conference, Seminars and Guest Lectures means distinguished speakers are invited from the industry and education sector each week to highlight current issues, trends and concerns of the industry. Students are given the opportunity to interact with these experts and gain their viewpoint on academic concepts that are actually practiced in the industry. These opportunities provide overall perspectives to the students for evaluating theoretical concepts and transforming them into realistic plans.
