The Xavier's Commerce Society is the representative society of the Department of Commerce of St. Xavier's College, Kolkata. The society strives for the progress and intellectual mastery of every undergraduate commerce student within the college. The society by organizing holistic events throughout the academic year ensures that every student is taught critical lessons before stepping into the Corporate World.


The Xavier's Commerce Society was formed with the motto “Dreams. Development. Destiny.” in March 2006.

  • Dreams symbolize the aspirations and desires of a person. The society encourages everyone to dream big and helps them to strengthen their abilities so as to enable them to give flight to their dreams and fulfill their desires.
  • Development stands for the process of gradual advancement from the stage of aspiration to the stage of achievement of one’s dreams. XCS helps its members to develop useful skills which they will require to accomplish their goals in the corporate sector.
  • Destiny refers to the fate of a person’s life. At XCS, we believe that a person's destiny is not predetermined but it is in his hands to shape his future. XCS strives to develop certain traits in its members which will help them convert their dreams into destiny.



  • To act as a synonym to professionalism and a body that believes in the quality of the events.
  • To ensure and provide fair and maximum participation of the commerce students in seminars and events in Kolkata and elsewhere.
  • To ensure each event has an educational/guiding/training purpose to it and that each of them is fulfill led.
  • To provide all its members an equal opportunity to not only learn and grow individually, but also as a team.
  • To appreciate and mutually respect the hard work, initiative and dedication of all its members.


The Xavier's Commerce Society after its humble beginning with the launch of the annual journal of the Department of Commerce, ‘Youthink’, in 2006, branched into newer areas which allowed students to get adequate exposure to industry and help them hone their skills that are essential at the workplace. The year 2007 was a significant year in the society's calendar as it initiated the intra college management festival, ‘X-Calibre’. 2009 was another landmark year as the society reached a new landmark by organizing ‘Insignia’, a national level management festival which witnessed top colleges from all round the country competing for the ultimate title. ‘Intelligentsia’, a panel discussion involving eminent and distinguished speakers; 'Innovision' which is a collection of numerous seminars and ‘Inception’, the management simulation event exclusively for the first year students of the college was also initiated in the same year. In 2013, Zonal Auditions were held for two events in Insignia wherein we received an overwhelming response from hundreds of undergraduates of Kolkata.

In the passing years, the society has shown phenomenal growth. It has expanded its horizons, allowing the BBA and Economics students of the college to participate in its events. We are proud to have been associated with the top brands in the industry; TATA, Birla, Hero, Cadbury, HP, Motilal Oswal, HDFC Bank and many more. We are also proud to have been associated with eminent personalities like Mr. Shahrukh Khan, Mr. Narayan Murthy, Mr. Suresh Raina and many others. The Xavier’s Commerce Society received applause and accolades from all quarters; and all corporates associated with us acknowledged the growth of our society from strength to strength with every passing year.

The Xavier’s Commerce Society organizes 6 distinct events and also publishes the annual journal of the Commerce Department every academic year.




The year will commence with our event Innovision, a weeklong knowledge saga wherein numerous seminars will be held. The seminars not only focus on career options available to students, but also on broadening the mindsets of budding entrepreneurs. The workshops, being the best means of resource and knowledge sharing, help commerce students warm themselves in the clasp of the corporate stream. The event will be held from 15th July to 19th July 2013 and incorporate seminars on the lines of the Financial Market, Family Business, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Career Options, Ethical hacking and Graphology.

The participants have to pass through various rounds ranging from group discussions, written tests and a personal interview. The event will be held on 26th and 27th July 2013.
