History of the Department of Commerce-Christ University
The Department of commerce was established in the year 1969 and is one of the oldest department. It began as Christ college and now it has attained deemed university status. In 2006 Christ University received autonomous status. Originally Christ college had only one section and later with the demand in the programme the department had four regular sections and now the department has grown in terms of programmes offered like, Bcom Hons,Mcom and MPhil .As we have increase in terms of number of students we have also diversified into variety of students coming from different countries. In the beginning the department had very less enrolment ratio of students and some of the students belonged to foreign countries mainly from Afghanistan.
Coming to the structure of the department we had only Hod and coordinators now we have associate dean and Hod and coordinators for Bcom Regular and Bcom Hons.Even the pattern of assessment of students has changed drastically. Earlier it was annual exam system and now there are continuous internal assessment patterns and semester system. There are add -on courses which are mandatory certificate courses to be undertaken by first and second year students.
