Industrial Visits

At St. Joseph’s College of Commerce, one does not confine learning to the four walls of the classroom. The management of the college encourages industrial visits for the students in order, to ensure that the students are updated about the latest developments in the corporate world. The students also get an opportunity to meet eminent professionals from the business world who can impart their knowledge and share their experiences.

Each class in the BBA department has to compulsorily undertake an industrial visit every academic year.

In the past, these industrial visits have been to Torishima Pumps Factory, Wipro Lights Factory, Mysore, Karnataka Milk Federation Factory, Paramount Nutrition Limited, Brilliant Printers Factory and Navkar Bio-Chem Pvt. Ltd.

Industrial Visits are not limited to local industries. The BBA Department organizes an annual international industrial/ university visit to give the students an international outlook.

In 2015, a 10-day International Trip to Spain, Italy and France was organized for forty-four students of the department. The trip was a remarkably enriching experience that juxtaposed sightseeing tours with industrial and academic excursions. The students visited the Fragonard Perfume factory in Paris and the Carraro Axles factory in Italy, where they experienced the practical aspects of Supply Chain Management and Materials Handling. They also spent a day at the University of Padova- the alma mater of the likes of Copernicus and William Harvey, where they attended a seminar on the educational and professional opportunities that Italy has to offer.
