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 Honorous Programme’ offered by our college 2012-13 after the College received the Autonomous Status.
The college now proposes to integrate more courses offered by the ‘Centre for Liberal Arts’ into the main stream B Com programme and thus creating a new programme to be named as B Com (Interdisciplinary). By opting for this programme a student will have an opportunity to differentiate oneself in this competitive world, and also will have an added advantage to pursue higher studies. 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.
The classes for the regular courses will happen in the morning as usual. However, for the Liberal Arts courses which are a part of the B Com (Interdisciplinary) Programme, the classes will be held in the afternoon as per the present schedule of Liberal arts.
