DEPARTMENT ANALYSIS AND FUTURE PLANS

 

Strengths:

Today, men are in demand for computer based business knowledge. Well qualified and experienced faculty coupled with research experience is the strength of the department. Reference books and Text books are available for the students and the faculty. The Commerce stream holds more prominence in the Job world. Hence, more students are attracted to commerce.

Weakness:

Curricula of B. Com and M.Com courses are teaching intensive rather than research oriented though there is a Project Report and Viva voice in the IV Semester of M. Com. Very few opportunities are available for the Commerce students in the rural areas to get them exposed to the business practical knowledge.

Opportunities:

The department believes that research based education is a never ending process. The department of commerce visualizes various future opportunities for encouraging, motivating, progressing and developing post graduate students making them involved research activates. Further, it is believed that we need to hold on to our strengths to tide over our weaknesses and grab available opportunities.

Challenges:

The college is located in the backward rural area. The department is confronting mounting task in integrating skill development programmes with the academic programme. It is believed that our Commerce Department needs to be transformed into a smart department, exploiting the benefits of the digital technology.

Future Plans:

  • Arranging a National level seminar in post accreditation period.
  • Expansion of infrastructural facilities particularly exploitation of digital technology for teaching and learning.
  • Starting MBA courses
  • A Research Projects to be undertaken by the faculty.
