COMMERCE MORNING

The Department of commerce at St. Xavier’s College enjoys a pre-eminent reputation for the excellence of its teaching in this dynamic discipline. It ranks alongside the most highly-rated departments in commerce among the undergraduate colleges of this country.

From a very humble beginning in 1946, today it is the biggest department of the college catering to more than 3000 students.

Our academic program is of the highest caliber because we believe in the transformative power of ideas. Our faculty, and diverse student body from various social walks of life, all contribute towards the same purpose: to maintain the department’s excellent reputation in education at the cutting edge of economic, institutional and organizational aspects of commerce.

We value an interdisciplinary undergraduate education with an emphasis on critical thinking and discussion of original texts. But then only concepts without connecting them to the real world situation may not always be desirable. Bridging both theory and practice is essential. In an effort to achieve this we have moved beyond the traditional methods of teaching. We bring together notable scholars, academics and industry heads from broad disciplines to foster an awareness of the permanent questions at the origin of learned inquiry through seminars and workshops on a regular basis.

We appreciate the exchange of ideas and breadth of knowledge that result from academics but at the same time feel that our students should also be aware of the social realities and challenges faced by this country. Our unique and possibly one of its kind “college to village and village to college” (which we call “Prayas”) project was devised to achieve this objective. Our emphasis has always been on the overall development of the students keeping in line with our motto “Nihil Ultra”.

The program in commerce leading to a B.Com. Degree is spread over three years and consists of six terms, each approximately of six months duration. The honours program is of 130 credits with specialization in the third year in any one of the following disciplines: Accounting and Finance, Marketing Management, and E-Commerce.Our department has been adjudged as no 1 college amongst all commerce colleges in India by India Today for which the college felicitated all the teaching and non teaching staff members on the 7 th of august.
