The Department is one of the 4 Departments that formed the nucleus of the
University when formed in 1985 by carving out 4 PG Departments from the
erstwhile Alagappa Arts College. The Department soon started offering
M.Phil (Regular, Part-time and Summer- Sequential) and Ph.D in Commerce,
besides the M.Com program.
In 1996 the Department started Master of
International Business Administration (MIBA) to coincide the
Liberalization, Privatization and Globalization (LPG) drives on the
Economic Policy front. The program was a great success. Hence Ph.D and
M.Phil programs also started. In 2005-06, the Master of International
Business Administration program was modified into MBA (International
Business and E-Commerce).
