Commerce is the conduct of trade among economic agents. Generally, commerce refers to the exchange of goods, services or something of value between businesses or entities. From a broad perspective, nations are concerned with managing commerce in a way that enhances the well-being of citizens, by providing and producing beneficial goods and services.
Generally, commerce is the exchange of goods or services for money or in kind, usually on a scale large enough to require transportation from place to place or across city, state or national boundaries.
M.Com is a 2- years post graduate course that is divided into 4-semesters. The course mainly includes thesis-based components and there may be some research-based elements. The course prepares the students for a career in the finance and corporate sector. The course also builds an in-depth knowledge about various commerce and trade practices.
