Bachelor in Commerce (Professional)

Traditional B.Com. degrees offer little more than accounting and taxation basics and therefore, do not offer students scope for being anything more than an accounts assistant or an accountant at best. Limited, narrowly focussed syllabus of traditional B.Com. courses seriously limits job opportunities and career options for the students of commerce. Today’s competitive world demands a much more broad based and simultaneously intensive knowledge of market ready skills. Our B.Com. (Professional) course is designed precisely to cater to such industry demands. B.Com. (Professional) course incorporates an eclectic combination of subjects and skill sets that transform a commerce student into a business professional. Apart from imparting the essentials of traditional commerce courses, this course teaches fundamentals of financial and marketing management, evaluation of debts and shares, as well as banking and insurance. The course tops it all by training students in effective use of communication skills as well as computers for managing business. The course also trains them in entrepreneurship skills. With this kind of curriculum, students are better poised to pursue multifarious opportunities that today’s globalized economy has to offer.

The course is open to students of all streams, and not just for those with a commerce background. Students from non-commerce background at the Intermediate/Plus 2 level will have to appear for a qualifying test in basic Accounting, Mathematics, and Computer Literacy. Further, after taking admission, they will have to go through and pass a mandatory bridge course of 15 days in Accounting, Mathematics, and Computer Literacy. The bridge course aims at bringing all students at par with each other in terms of academic capability.
