It is an honour and a privilege to be the Principal of Vidya Vikas Mandal’s Shree Damodar College of Commerce & Economics. Both Vidya Vikas Mandal and Shree Damodar College of Commerce & Economics are widely known in Goa as leaders in the field of education.
Damodar College was established in 1973 by a young band of pioneers who had a great dream, but very limited resources. Undaunted, they approached the people of Goa for help, and the rest, as they say, is history. Damodar College is therefore, a College that owes its very existence to the people of Goa and their generosity. Mindful of this great debt, the College is committed to providing quality education to meet the needs of the community, and to serve the community in every possible way
The College offers 4 undergraduate programmes – Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com), Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) [B.Com(Hons)], Bachelor of Computer Applications (BCA) and Bachelor of Business Administration (Financial Services) – BBA (FS). The College has also made a mark at the Post graduate level, offering the M.com programme of the Goa University. With recognized research centres of Goa University in the campus, the College now offers PhD in Commerce and PhD in Management Studies of Goa University.
Catering to over 1000 students from diverse backgrounds, Damodar College is one of the most sought after colleges in Goa. While striving towards academic excellence, we realize the importance of all-round education and holistic development of students, and actively encourage wide participation in NCC, NSS, sports, public speaking, debates, writing, business skills, and so on. With a strong desire to help develop the personalities of our students, the College provides an enabling environment to nurture and develop creativity and leadership qualities of students. At the same time, the College is keen to develop in students a sense of social consciousness and responsibility, which will make them good, responsible citizens.
Backed by a supportive and visionary management, the College is stepping into the fifth decade of its existence, full of energy and vigour, eager to exploit new opportunities and take on any challenges. We invite all our valued stakeholders- students, parents, alumni, employers and the community at large – to join us in our march towards excellence in education.
