The Department of Commerce (Morning) at St. Xavier’s College enjoys a pre-eminent status for the excellence of its teaching in this dynamic discipline. It is ranked alongside the highly-acclaimed departments in Commerce among the undergraduate colleges of this country. Our academic program is of the highest caliber and aims at transforming ideas and thoughts into applications and achievements.

The Department has implemented Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) since July 2017 for Semester curriculum. The coverage and depth of the topics are well appreciated by all stakeholders.

The Department has also introduced the usage of app-based attendance system for the students. The graphic and the list view displayed in the application guides the faculties to identify the students easily. The application provides a user-friendly platform to carry on other academic activities. This endeavor is a remarkable milestone in the history of St. Xavier’s College, Kolkata. The motivation goes back to the legacy of the Jesuits at St Xavier’s College, who are known for their innovations in terms of adoption of new ideas. In the footsteps of Father Eugene Lafont, who set up modern India’s first scientific observatory at St Xavier’s, the core committee of administration is spearheading the effort towards e-management of the various engagements of the college. The app-based attendance system has undoubtedly been a commendable initiative of the department.

The Department appreciates the exchange of ideas and assimilation of knowledge by organizing seminars and workshops on a regular basis. The FDP is conducted regularly by the faculties to update themselves. The department exhibited unique effort in introducing GST in their curriculum for the first time among the other colleges in Kolkata. Another noteworthy development of the department is the introduction of SPSS in the syllabus of Business Mathematics and Statistics, catering to the second year students under CBCS curriculum. The Department also invites resource persons from the areas of industry, commerce and trade to conduct enriching seminars for students. These efforts aim to instill an in-depth knowledge among the student fraternity.

Simultaneously, the students are also encouraged to participate in social work and 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. Additionally, the foundation course on inter-religious studies will surely build up the morale of the students to mutually appreciate and respect each other.

The diverse student structure together with dedicated faculties contributes enormously to sustain the efficiency of the department. Apart from our committed faculty members and support staff, we are proud of our enthusiastic, vibrant and academically brilliant students. Our students fare very well in their CA and CS examinations as well as in all the other competitive entrance examinations like CAT, XAT, MAT, to name a few. They also actively participate in extracurricular activities, attend various national and international fests organized by premier institutes like Christ University, Loyola College, SRCC, among many others.

Our emphasis has always been on the overall development of the students keeping in line with our motto ”Nihil Ultra”. This collaborative effort will necessarily produce human beings for others and emerge as agents of change and transformation for the benefit of the society.
