About Department


The college was shifted to the present building in 1988 from University Arts College building. It has been felt that there should be specific focus and emphasis both in teaching and research in respect of different subjects under the umbrella of Commerce and Management. Consequently, the faculty of Commerce has been bifurcated in July 1999 into two distinct faculty’s viz., Faculty of Commerce and Faculty of Management. The college represents these two faculties.
