Commerce and Business Education

Commerce and Business activities have remained part and parcel of human life since long. But in the present era emphasis on this education has tremendously increased due to advancements in technologies and complex market phenomenas. In order to cope with these market challanges and to equip the new generation with relevent knowledge and skill, the government has set up at least one College of Commerce & Management Sciences in every district of the province. Some districts also have a seperate such college for female students.

Commerce & Business Education enables the students to be able to start their own business in a professional way. It also enables the students to become an indespensible part of government and private financial departments.
