न हि ज्ञानेन सदृशं पवित्रमिह विद्यते।
ज्ञान के समान पवित्र इस संसार में कुछ नहीं है।।
There is nothing more pure in this world than knowledge(Jyana)
“Vanijya Samiti”, the Commerce Society at Bharati College, came into existence in 2013. It was inaugurated by Dr. A.K. Singh, Associate Professor, Department of Commerce, Delhi School of Economics, University of Delhi.
The society aims to make a difference in the domain of learning through practical exposure of the students to the insights of the business world.
It constitutes 16 hardworking members and a few faculty working as mentors. The society has been, since its inception, organizing various events and activities each academic year related to the domain of commerce as an extension of the curriculum to provide a platform to the students to hone their skills at networking as well as understanding the nuances of the business world. It thus, provides students with the opportunities to explore subjects beyond the classroom and comprehend and imbibe critical life skills.
