The vision of our institute is:
“To attain excellence of students in academic and other programs and for creating an environment that is dedicated to inculcating in students the skills and values necessary to succeed in real life situations and to make them responsible citizens.”
J.Z. Shah Arts & H. P. Desai Commerce College, Amroli came into being as a result of the foresight, the creative instinct and the tireless efforts of the ever enthusiastic trustee and members of Jivan Jyot Trust, Amroli. As a landmark instance of their dream project for transforming the little known rather isolated Amroli village into a well developed, self sufficient and civilized community, the foundation stone for the college was laid in 1990, which a view to imparting quality education, along with substantial training in nurturing moral principles, patriotic feelings, career building, personality development and social service so that a new generation of vigor and values might come up to uplift the village and thereby help the nation. The college ever since its establishment has been fully aware of these goals and every move is made towards this with utmost care and conviction.
We sincerely believe that the role of a college is not only to pursue academic excellence, strict discipline but also to motivate and empower the students to be lifelong learners, critical, thinkers and productive members of an ever changing global society we motivate students for multi faceted development, where students are encouraged to channelize their potential in the pursuit of excellence. This can only be possible in a holistic student centric environment.
The college has earned good name for academic atmosphere, self recognized discipline & encouragement which is given to the students who actively participates in extra-curricular and co-curricular activities. Centralized admission procedure is done by VNSGU, Surat for first year
B.Com. and PG programs. Admission demand ratio of our college is higher in comparison to other colleges of surrounding area.
For the upliftment of the society college believe in giving preference to girls for admission. This is the very reason why more than 70% of students are girls & parents have complete trust about the security and academic guidance given to their daughters. If the girl students of self-financed classes excel in academics, they are shifted to grant-in-aid classes so that they need to pay very less fees. The students who are economically backward are given opportunity to get registered under “Earn and Learn Scheme”.
It is a noteworthy point that 80% of our students are first generation learners who pursued college education. Their parents have not even completed higher secondary education. So, the college involves the parents to observe the growth, progress & achievements of their children.
The college plays active role in supplying study materials, books, previous five year’s exam papers with solution to all the students and the study material is also displayed on e-platform Google class room. This has helped to improve the results consistently. The college results are
invariably more than the university results every year. A unique policy is adopted by the institute of mentor and mentee where the class advisor becomes the mentor of one particular class and the students of that class are mentee. This practice helps in settling the grievances, needs and problems of the mentee. The mentor also does counseling if required. The college uses innovative methods of teaching- learning such as power point presentations, chalk-talk, assignments, group discussions, quiz, seminars, workshops, guest lectures, etc. The college
motivates students achievements through more than five prize distribution ceremonies a year.
In addition to a normal bachelor degree our college offers value added courses so minimum two more certificates are added to the bachelor degree to improve their placement eligibility.
After the completion of graduation studies 60% of the students go for higher education to pursue masters. 1% of our students are very much focused and definite for career orientation to get through NET/SET examinations. There are considerable number of students who applied for different government posts/entrance exams. The college has encourage these students by providing preparation & training through agencies like Sambhav Institute, Prasthan Institute, iRojgar, for UPSC, GPSC and other government exams. We have started the certificate course namely, “Campus to Corporate” and Finishing School for the final year students for preplacement training. We have also started center for the preparation of NET/GSET examination for the aspirants. We have also started “Tally Erp 9” as Vocational Educational Training Program and for bridging the gap between campus and corporate.
Amongst them 40% take part in placement drive. The placement cell of the college is functioning well through tie ups and linkages with various organizations as many reputed industries are willing to conduct recruitment drives on the campus like TCS, ICICI prudential, Kotak Mahindra Bank and many such. These companies every year come for placement interviews, preplacement training and conduct seminars and workshops. The entire career oriented activity is excellently done through the unit from campus to corporate activity. For example TCS Company visits our college since 2014 till the date. They groom our students. It is needless to mention that these companies do online exams sieving the candidates through four rigorous exams. They appoint the candidates. All these exams and interview has been taken in English. Our Gujarati medium students have also been able to crack these exams and use competent English. The performance of our Alumni in these companies is a big pull factor for them to use our campus as a candidate hub. Last year more than 130 students is recruited through campus drive.
Thus our college is fully aware of its goals and every move is made towards its attainment with utmost care and conviction.
