In a short period of time, the Department of Commerce has become one of the best commerce departments in Kerala, India, catering to even international students pursuing professional qualifications together with B Com/M Com. 

The School of Commerce and Professional Studies (SCAPS), since its inception, focuses on building a strong foundation in theory and practice to make each student well fit for employment and higher studies.
