The Department of Commerce organises Panel Discussion ever year for its M COM programme. It is a forum opened for intensive discussion and dialogue on current affairs and business with a core objective to educate the student community and keep them abreast with the current happenings in the commerce world. The sessions are highly interactive with industrial experts present to enrich student’s learning. The topics that are selected add an important dimension to the curriculum.
This year, the discussion was focused on the topic “Licencing of new banks and its impact on the Economy”.

Vasanth Rai, (Former Workmen Director, Canara Bank), Ms. Swathi S.M (General Manager, Corporation Bank), Mr.Shrikanth Rao (Associate Professor, CUIM) and Mr. T.S Ramachandran (Associate Professor, CUIM) were the distinguished panellists.
