Expectations of businesses and industries are changing very fast and therefore the conventional B Com programme should also change to cater to the changing needs. Conventional watertight compartmentalization of Arts / Commerce / Science is not going to offer the required skill sets to people to face the changing business environment.
Whether one is self-employed or having a job, only domain knowledge is not enough in today’s world. One needs to think out of the box, develop critical thinking, negotiation skills, an exposure to national and international events, and also an awareness of a varied aspects of society and culture.
Considering these factors Symbiosis College of Arts and Commerce introduced Liberal Arts Programme in 2006. For this purpose, Symbiosis Centre for Liberal Arts was established. The ‘Liberal Arts’ programme was well received by the students as an ‘Add On’ diploma or certificate. This interdisciplinary component was then integrated into the ‘Degree with Honors Programme’ after the College received the Autonomous Status in 2012-13.
Taking a step forward on the same lines, the college has now started a new programme named B Com (Interdisciplinary). This program integrates some more courses offered by the ‘Centre for Liberal Arts’ into the main stream B Com programme.
By opting for this programme a student has an opportunity to differentiate himself in this competitive world. The college believes that this programme will lead to a holistic development of the student’s personality in the true sense, thus making him industry and profession ready.
