Message from Dean
Dr. Salim Shamsher
The Finance Function plays an essential role in every aspect of Business. As has been rightly said, it is the lifeblood of every business organisation. A robust financial system is a must for an economy to prosper. As businesses evolve and change, the finance function has also followed suit, Technology has transformed and disrupted the Finance and Banking Function and has made it more cost effective, accessible and efficient. The finance function would thus need a proper blend of both technical and business skills. As financial markets become more and more informative and integrated and with complex and innovative financial products being launched in these markets, understanding the dynamics and intricacies of the same becomes highly pertinent. With Businesses today becoming more and more competitive, Corporate Finance Departments across the globe are changing and financial executives are assuming more of a strategic role and increased amount of time is being spent on financial risk management and strategic planning and analysis. Financial Managers and investors do not operate in isolation but within an everchanging Business environment. This environment is made up of multiple macro-economic variables which are complex and interlinked, thus Studying the subject of finance without understanding its linkages with economics, strategy and other areas of business and social sciences does not make sense. An Interdisciplinary and holistic approach towards learning finance is therefore the need of the hour.
In the light of what has been stated above, We, at the School of Finance and Commerce have designed both our undergraduate and Post graduate programs with this interdisciplinary focus and in such a manner that they remain relevant with the ever-changing business environment. Our students through these programs and through our co-curricular activities not only gain underlying conceptual knowledge about the subject area but also develop all the skills sets necessary to enable them to discharge their roles efficiently as well as effectively. Our excellent physical infrastructure and contemporary teaching methods facilitate effective learning by the students. A dedicated placement cell supports students in obtaining suitable placements. At the Undergraduate level we offer a Bachelors in Commerce (B. Com) and a Bachelor in Business Administration program (BBA) majoring in finance, similarly at the post graduate level, a Masters in commerce (M. Com) and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) program majoring in finance is offered. For aspirants intending to pursue research in the area of Finance and Commerce, we offer a PhD program in the relevant areas.
We Welcome you to the School of Finance and Commerce at Galgotias University and invite you to an enriching and rewarding learning experience.
