2. BACHELOR OF COMMERCE - VOCATIONAL [B.COM (Voc.)]

Recognizing the need for Vocational Training, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has introduced a scheme for Vocationalisation of Education.

This College has permission to conduct two vocational courses viz. Advertising, Sales Management & Sales Marketing and Computer Applications. Students who opt for these courses undergo On-The-Job-Training (OJT) during their vacation, which is a compulsory part of the course.
These courses are now self-financed courses, as the grant period of 5 years came to an end in the academic year 2004-05. The College will offer these courses depending upon the number of students registering for them; a minimum of 25 students is essential if the course is to be viable and affordable for the average student. The fee structure for the two courses will be announced later.

The financial sector is one of the most rapidly growing service sectors in India as well as in the world, and offers tremendous employment opportunities. Presently specialization in Finance is only a Post-Graduate option (MBA, MFS), which not all students can exercise. The BA(FS) aims to develop the student’s knowledge and skills in Finance and Financial Services, and can help students gain entry into the Finance sector. It will also be an ideal educational foundation for a Management career in Banking and Financial Services.
The course aims at achieving the following objectives
• To provide a thorough exposure to the fundamental disciplines underpinning financial services
• To enhance analytical, communication and problem solving skills
• To develop students' knowledge of management in banks and financial services companies
• To help students apply the theoretical knowledge gained to practical, operational and strategic issues in banking and finance
• To provide the student with knowledge of domestic and international financial systems
The 3-year,6-semester programme is designed to enhance students' understanding of the theory and practice of financial decision-making and its environment. It provides a focussed programme for those who wish to pursue careers in corporate finance, banking, insurance and financial services. Graduates from the course are likely to be employed in the areas of financial management and treasury, banking, and financial services in general. Their knowledge of financial markets would make graduates of this programme eligible for employment in all types of financial institutions.
