Commerce education is now being increasingly called upon to create executives who exhibit socially responsible behaviour that at the same time adds value to firm’s performance.
Our efforts are aimed at producing technically well-prepared and competent executives who are better able to deal with the national and global canvass as well. We provide the executives that industry, Governments and other policy makers demand.
On behalf of Patna University in general and the Vanijya Mahavidyalaya in particular, I appreciate the interest shown by you in our institution.
The ultimate aim of education is to make a person knowledgeable and well informed and offer him/her skills so that one can earn one’s livelihood and foster better environment in the society.

From the Vice-Chancellor’s Desk
Patna University is the seventh oldest University of India, with the richest of academic traditions. The best students from all over the Eastern Region and Abroad have always sought to be educated in this University. We would like it to regain its past glory and rise to new heights through modernization and all-round development.
Special efforts are required for achieving high academic excellence. Qualitative change in Higher Education is possible only through radical means including incorporating Information Technology/e-Governance, adopting a policy of social inclusion and making quantitative as well as qualitative changes in teaching, research & development activities.
We would need synergistic efforts and cooperation from all quarters for achieving this distinction, so that we may provide quality education to all our students.
