The courses by the Department are offered basically to students of the Jain community and also to students from under privileged sections of the society.
The Department of Commerce has a rich tradition with outstanding Professors who were stalwarts in the field of Commerce education.
The founder Head of the Department was veteran Professor V.V. Raman who contributed immensely to the growth and reputation of the department. He subsequently became the Principal of the College .
His successor was another outstanding Commerce Professor Sri M.S.Balasubramanian who by his rich knowledge and expertise carved a niche for the department among other departments of commerce in the city colleges. He was also responsible for introducing the M.Com course, thereby elevating the department to a post graduate department.
Many faculty members of the department have become Principals of the College. Some of our faculty members in the past and present have been conveners and members of academic bodies in the University of Madras and other autonomous Colleges in the State.
Most of our students including first generation learners have become successful entrepreneurs and most sort after professionals in the field of commerce.
