Commerce Department

Subjects offered through the Commerce Department are Accounting, Economics, and Business Studies.

Our philosophy is that general knowledge of Commerce/Business/Enterprise is an important life skill. We want to impart not only knowledge and skills to the students but also a ‘we can do it’ attitude.
