B.Com at LPU is really amazing there are some reasons behind.
1. This course aims to demonstrate understanding of professional customs and practices. Students also learn to organize and maintain information. It improves problem solving and critical thinking skills. Students learn how to effectively utilize a new software tool to complete a task.
2. Students will be able to identify the key issues faced by organizations and develop models to help in removal of the issues. Most of the colleges not provide the Placement facility after Bachelor Programme but LPU does. LPU Gives the opportunity to work with well known Companies with higher salary package. LPU also provide the scholarship facility but you have to give the LPU NEST test. There are other scholarship programme as well for that you have to visit LPU website. Hope this helpful!
