Outcome Oriented Curriculum for Employable Commerce Graduates

The NorthCap University has taken several initiatives to make the commerce undergraduates experience worthwhile. While keeping in consideration the recently introduced Learning Outcome Based Curriculum Framework (LOCF) for commerce education, the curriculum is designed to equip students with expertise, values, and attitude. As the millennials require practical knowledge and hands-on learning for better employability, a mandatory internship has been a part of the syllabus to expose students to the varied requirement of industries and start-ups. The students are motivated to opt for different projects and data collection surveys to develop their research acumen. The syllabus of subjects for instance Accountancy, Taxation, Entrepreneurship is developed to inculcate interdisciplinary approach among the students. Introduction of General Electives, Skill Enhancement Courses and Discipline Specific Elective courses under Choice Based Credit System(CBCS) would enhance the scope of their careers. The curriculum is revised by domain-specific faculties in consultation with industry experts to keep students abreast of the latest changes in business environment and to attain skills following the current demands of the industry. The inclusion of case studies and simulation activities adds value to the conventional mode of studies. Frequent guest lectures from corporates and alumni gives an insightful experience to the undergraduates. Moreover, recent initiative of blended learning through MOOC courses offered by reputed national and international universities enrich the cognitive abilities of students and make them ready for campus placements. The endeavours of the university have made commerce education the first choice among various undergraduate courses.
