The strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, challenges and future plans of the department are:
The department is having well qualified and experienced faculty 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.
Curriculum of B. Com course is teaching intensive rather than research oriented though there is a Project Report and Viva voice. Very few opportunities are available for the Commerce students in the rural areas to get them exposed to the business practical knowledge.
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.
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.
