Director’s Message

Nirma University added one more feather in its cap by starting Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) Programme from Academic Year 2016-17. Like any other programme of the Nirma University, BCom (Hons.) Programme is also premised on the twin criteria of rigour and relevance. The curriculum is primarily focused on addressing the needs of accounting profession and BFSI sector.

The field of commerce education is becoming more fragmented and specialised to address the ever increasing demands of complex business entities and transactions. The demand of good business professionals, such as chartered accountants, management accountants, auditors, finance professionals, actuaries, company secretaries, chartered financial analysts, etc. is ever increasing to stay buoyant in the competition and fuel the further growth of organisations.

As part of our commitment to overall development of the students by providing quality education, we continuously update our curriculum taking industry and global markets into account. Apart from the traditional lecture method, we use case studies and simulations, extended internships and right blend of extracurricular activities, presentation and communication skills to equip our students with skills sets demanded by the market. The strong pedagogy and variety of extracurricular activities including cultural, NSS and sports activities, makes the BCom (Hons.) Programme a unique learning opportunity for young students while being on campus for three years.

We have entered into several partnerships/engagements with organisations such as GIFT SEZ CITY, CIMA Global, AIMA, Tally, ACCA, NISM, etc. to provide our students with additional certifications. In a very short span of time, the Institute has outperformed its peers by claiming various prizes and medals in team as well individual categories of various games, sports and cultural activities organized by various Universities and other organisations. Our placement record of first batch graduating soon is quite impressive.

I wish our current and future students a fulfilling and academically rewarding life on the campus of Nirma University. I also invite suggestions from students as well as other stakeholders to further improve our service delivery.
