The Department of Commerce at Shivaji College upholds the tradition of the University of Delhi in imparting excellent education. The department provides a stimulating environment for an all-round development of the students. Dedicated faculty with a strong background in Commerce and Economics encourage the students to understand not just the theoretical, but also cognitive and practical applications of the subject. To expose the students to latest developments in the financial and corporate sector, the department organises seminars, discussions and workshops on contemporary issues.
Students are encouraged to take up the responsibility of organising the events so as to enhance their administrative and managerial skills. The annual inter college Commerce festival “OPTIMUM” provides a platform for students to think beyond the lines of formal curriculum and showcase their creativity. This festival is organised by the duly elected Commerce Society “KAIZEN”. It is one of the most awaited academic events in the College and attracts wide participation from different colleges in competitions like paper presentation, group discussion, business quiz, mock stock, logo redesigning etc. The Commerce department also has to its credit well placed and successful alumni.
