Ready for Busi­ness

Ex­cel­lence is not an aim but a tra­di­tion in this premier in­sti­tu­tion for com­merce ed­u­ca­tion

India Today - - BEST COLLEGES - By Mi­hika Sharma

ALL LALA SHRI RAM had re­ally wanted to do was cre­ate a cen­tre for com­merce ed­u­ca­tion in In­dia. But, even by his own imag­i­na­tion, he would have prob­a­bly been stunned to see that what he started in a hired house in Delhi’s Darya­ganj, with all of 12 stu­dents, has grown to be­come In­dia’s premier in­sti­tu­tion for com­merce and eco­nom­ics. To­day, the Shri Ram Col­lege of Com­merce at­tracts stu­dents from all cor­ners of the coun­try. They come seek­ing top qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion and high­est stan­dards of ex­cel­lence. The stu­dent com­po­si­tion at SRCC is uni­form—most set foot here af­ter top­ping their school, city or state in the 12 boards. The other group of achiev­ers is one that has made a mark in the sport­ing arena.

SRCC pas­souts go places. The aca­dem­i­cally in­clined make it to renowned na­tional and in­ter­na­tional in­sti­tu­tions—IIM, Delhi School of Eco­nom­ics, Lon­don School of Eco­nom­ics to name a few. Place­ment records are en­vi­able, with no top re­cruiter giv­ing SRCC a miss, from Google, Uber, Deutsche Bank, Citibank to McKin­sey.

What sets SRCC apart is its lib­eral and en­er­getic at­mos­phere. The SRCC Busi­ness Con­clave, ar­guably the biggest un­der­grad­u­ate man­age­ment fes­ti­val in In­dia, has in the past seen par­tic­i­pa­tion by 10,000 stu­dents and at­ten­dance by the likes of Prime Min­is­ter Narendra Modi, Bharti En­ter­prises founder-chair­man Sunil Bharti Mit­tal, In­fosys co­founder N.R. Narayana Murthy and Go­drej group chair­man Adi Go­drej. It is planned and or­gan­ised en­tirely by the col­lege stu­dents’ body.
