Department of Commerce

Post Graduate and Research Department of Commerce, with its roots dating back to 1967, the year of inception of the college, started with two batches of students of Pre-degree. The demand for a commerce college was so huge in western part of Kochi, which was a prominent centre of business and trade amongst the various communities that the need culminated in the form of Department of Commerce of The Cochin College. Western Kochi, which is famous for its trade and commerce, steadily provided a stream of laborious and intellectual students to the Under Graduate Programme with specialisation in Finance offered by the department, whereby the existence of the Department in the institution was truly justified. The Department was also equally productive by generating top three consecutive ranks in the Under Graduate Programme in the University examination in 1981. The Department of Commerce is a dream destination for those aspiring to pursue their interest in the areas of Commerce, Business and Management. The department offers some of the best academic resources for excellence, be it by way of faculty, infrastructure, library and computers. The Post Graduate Programme was offered in the year 1995 with Finance as the area of specialisation. The second batch of Under Graduate Programme offered by the Department was Bachelor of Commerce with specialisation in Marketing, considering the need of the hour in 1999. A prominent achievement which comes to the limelight is the establishment of Research Centre on 3rd August 2006. The Department also publishes double blind peer reviewed half yearly journal with an ISSN – Contemporary Commerce Review. The journal aims to keep readers up-to-date with latest research and newest thinking in commerce and management in a simple way. The Journal is currently getting ready with its fourth edition. 
 
    While the college provides a blend of academic, cultural and intellectual resources, the department brings to the students a dynamic environment for the overall development of their personalities, aspirations and talents in the discipline of commerce. The students of the department enjoy a distinct advantage in the matter of employment in reputed organisations and a good number of them are offered positions through campus recruitment, even before they complete the programme. The Department can also confidently boast of having a strong almuni base where communication is primarily done using social networking sites. The department has consistently bagged 100% pass in the university examinations and prides in producing a plethora of toppers in the university examinations year after year, in both B.Com and M.Com programmes. With the advent of CBCSS examination also, the Department has produced University toppers – students securing A+ in overall semester grading. Various programmes and workshops on the lines of project based methodology and lecture series are successfully conducted for fruitfully accomplishing the interest of students in academics. The students perform excellently in their projects so much to awaken the interest of industrial sector for financing the further study. Social outreach and interaction programme is part and parcel of the departmental activities where by special care and concern is given right from grass root levels- homemakers and self employed ladies in connected areas like finance, practical training, awareness regarding subsidies offered to them are made known. The Department of Commerce has evolved itself over the years and retains its prestigious position as the foremost of institutions dedicated to Commerce and Economics education in this part of Ernakulam. The Department was first headed by Prof. Andrews Mooken with a succession list of eminent and capable teachers ,the list running the names of Dr.S Venugopal, Prof N P Raveendran and also Prof Dr M C Dillep Kumar, who is adorning the post of Vice Chancellor of Sree Sankaracharya University of Sanskrit, Kalady, later to Dr. K R Jaya who went to act as The Prinicpal of the College and then to Dr,Geetha C A. The Head ship of the department has been handed over to proficient hands of Dr Geetha M. The faculties at the Department are active participants in various seminars, conferences conducted at various parts of our country and closely on the path of research. At the age of 44 years, the Department is a young and promising adult with well-defined goals and aspirations. The generous support extended by the Management, the merit of the faculty, the academic excellence of the students , gratify and enthuse us, especially since we at the Department of Commerce believe ‘Sky is not the limit’.
