Ques. How is Nirma University for a B.Com. (Honours)?

● Top Answer By Debjani Modak on 16 Jul 21

Ans. It is too early to remark on the quality of Nirma University's B.Com. (Hons.) program because it only started in the 2016–17 academic year. As far as I know, it is held in the Institute of Management building. It has excellent infrastructure and a high-quality learning environment. Nirma University is the place to be if you are studious and want to earn and learn something important. Most people would not recommend it until a few batches graduate from the Commerce Department. The fee structure is very high compared to any other institute. Since it is a new department, there are no records of placements/internships. If you are a middle-class person, investing a lot for a year with no prior experience is a large risk. But it is a good value for someone who can afford it because of the university's overall reputation.Read more
