Brief History of the Committee & Introduction:
Department of Commerce has formed this Association way back in 2005. Main aim behind the forming this association was to create a platform for commerce students to come together and showcase their skills & talents by organizing some programmes on their own, of course under the guidance of departmental staff. The other important fact behind creating this association was, as number of commerce students is very large it is difficult to bring all of them together, so by having this type of association we can at least bring together like mended students. In fact this also gives an opportunity to teacher to develop personal rapport at least with few students, which otherwise difficult in larger commerce class.
