The Department of Commerce at St. Xavier’s College enjoys a pre-eminent status for the excellence of its teaching in this dynamic discipline. It is ranked alongside the highly-acclaimed departments in Commerce among the undergraduate colleges of this country. Our academic program is of the highest caliber and aims at transforming ideas and thoughts into applications and achievements. The programme is designed to enable and empower students to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities to analyze and synthesize the contemporary realities of the domain of business. It encourages students to explore the world of technology and digitization in the relevant field. Further, this course is designed to help cultivating entrepreneurial mindset and skills. The diverse student structure together with dedicated faculties contributes enormously to sustain the efficiency of the Department. Apart from our committed faculty members and support staff, we are proud of our enthusiastic, vibrant and academically brilliant students.

Simultaneously, the students are also encouraged to participate in social work and be aware of the social realities and challenges faced by this country. Our unique and possibly one of its kind “college to village and village to college” (’Prayas’) project was devised to achieve this objective. Additionally, the foundation course on inter-religious studies will surely build up the morale of the students to mutually appreciate and respect each other. Our students fare very well in their CA, CMA and CS examinations as well as in all the other competitive entrance examinations like CAT, XAT, MAT, to name a few. They also actively participate in extracurricular activities, attend various national and international fests organized by premier institutions across the country. Our emphasis has always been on the overall development of the students keeping in line with our motto “Nihil Ultra”. This collaborative effort will necessarily produce human beings for others and emerge as agents of change and transformation for the benefit of the society.
