About the Department


The Department of Commerce was introduced in Auxilium College in the year 1980 with an initial sanctioned strength of 50 in the UG Course. During the first few years of establishment, the Department was under the care of Mrs. P.M. Vijayalakshmi, Head of the Department of Economics. There was only one Assistant Professor of Commerce to handle Commerce classes and the Law related subjects was being handled by Ms. Suseela, an advocate from Vellore.

After a few years, when the Department obtained sanction from the Government as well as the University of Madras, to which the College was affiliated then, the number of staff members in the Department increased to three who started handling all the subjects including Law related subjects.

Since the year 1985, the class strength was raised to 70 and the number of staff members was four. In the following years, due to the excessive demand for seats in B.Com., the strength was further increased to 76 and the number of sanctioned posts for teaching staff increased to five.

Due to the heavy demand for the course, in the year 2002, the UG Course was also introduced in the unaided stream with about 30 students with the aim of preparing Women Entrepreneurs. Owing to the demand for commerce students, the P.G Programme commenced in the year 2003. The department has a full time research centre for M. Phil. from the year 2008.
