At the first year, all papers are common for B.Com & B.Com(Hons) and the choice of programme is to be made at the end of Semester II i.e. before the student begins his/her second year of undergraduate studies. The final programme structure & syllabi will be displayed once finalized by the Goa University.
The B.Com students are the mainstay of the College making up almost 75% of the student strength. In academics the College offers students all the elective papers at all three years, giving them ample choice. Subject allocation is based on objective criteria and is done in a completely transparent manner.
The College has produced Goa University rankers almost every year in the past 10 years and will continue to do so in the future as well. The students of the College study hard and play hard as well — they participate wholeheartedly in NCC, NSS, sports and a variety of co-curricular activities and have also developed leadership skills by organizing all College-level and inter-collegiate events. Winning prizes and awards in academics, sports and cultural activities is second nature to our talented B.Com students.
Besides the normal co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, the College also takes pains to augment students’ skills so as to improve their employability. Towards this end, we provide the students with training in Soft Skills, Tally, Financial Planning, Practical Banking and other add on courses.
The Career and Placement Cell has been successful in placing students with banks, financial institutions, non-voice BPO firms and private sector organizations for marketing and accounting jobs.
