especially the Department of Commerce with Farm Management.
An ultra-modern course curriculum has been designed incorporating mainstream management courses and also including
some aspects of rural management. That way it honours the recommendation of the NAAC (National Assessment and
Accreditation Council) Peer Team on one hand and on the other pays due regard to the inherent nontraditional character of the University.

and write an array of articles for general business publications. Apart from the in-house faculties, sincere attempts are made to invite
guest faculties from management and allied departments of other reputed universities and institutes to prvide desired blend of input to the students.
At present, the department intakes 60 students from various streams through CAT, CMAT, JEMAT, MAT, VUMAT and
other recognized management aptitude tests. They are offered innovative yet globally accepted programs for

But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
