Business School Initiatives for Social Responsibility

Fee Contribution to the Needy Students

Students and staff of the department of commerce are committed to support needy students.

Participation in Local SME Finance Mela

As part of our policy for support and development of local small and medium enterprises, department of commerce have participated in the SME Finance Mela. During the mela, faculty of the department interacted with various stakeholders to understand issues and concerns of SMEs. During the Mela, one of the issues highlighted by our faculty member was that, due to the language barrier, majority of the participants were not able to understand the different financial concepts that were being presented by various stakeholders. We offered our services to explain those concepts in the local language for better understanding. That initiative was very well received and appreciated by various stakeholders.
