Department of Commerce

About

The Department of Commerce of Heramba Chandra College started its journey with the inception of the college in 1954 with the motto of imparting quality teaching in the commerce education keeping in view the need of trade, industry and commerce embarked upon by the country after  the independence. Since then it has traversed a long path ultimately reaching its present height. At present, it accounts for a sizeable portion of total student strength of the undergraduate Commerce stream of the University of Calcutta.  In fact, Heramba Chandra College is known to the outsiders for its Commerce Department which is treated as one of the best Commerce Departments among different colleges affiliated to the University of Calcutta.  It is no exaggeration that a large number of students qualify B.Com(H) with 1st class each year and  successfully pursue post graduation and professional courses like Chartered Accountancy, Cost Accountancy, Company Secretaryship or MBA.

The Department is proud of its past faculty members who enriched the department by their great contribution in the teaching and learning. Many of them authored books on the different subjects of commerce which are widely acclaimed. The present faculty is maintaining this legacy and thriving in attaining further excellence of the department.

The faculty always remains  careful and alert to the need and aspiration of the students who are treated as the most valuable assets. They are always encouraged to interact with the teachers and ventilate their problem,if any, in understanding any topic which is further discussed and made understandable to them cordially. The department is having a number of class rooms with ICT facility which is fully utilized to make the lectures interesting. While teaching, emphasis is given to develop the analytical mind of the students so that they can form opinion and give reasoning to the real world practices. Students are given easy access to the library of the college which is equipped with a rich collection of books on Commerce. The department brings out its annual journal ‘Apperception’ which provides a great scope to the students and teachers to write papers on the emerging issues of social science, particularly in the area of Accounting, Finance and Management. ''Aptitude'' iis another publication of the department brought out annually to present the outstanding project works of the current students of B.Com. Part III (H) so that they feel encouraged and  the students of the coming years can get guidance about how to write project report as per requirement of University of Calcutta. The Placement Cell of the college provides a great opportunity to the students of the department who like to join services after their graduation. It is a matter of complacence that many reputed multinational companies, among others, visit our campus each year and a large number of students get placed in different organisations.   The college also arranges for pre-placement training and career counselling for the students. The extra-curricular activities of the students of the department are also worth-mentioning. They are always encouraged to participate in games and sports, debate and quiz competition and other co-curricular activities. Many of them  have shown their excellence in games and sports, quiz competition and debating.

The department can also boast of its past students, many of whom are now well placed in the different walks of life. The Alumni Association of the college mostly comprising of the past students of Commerce Department regularly keeps in touch with the faculty. The department is privileged to get the invaluable advice, guidance and support from them.
