About College

The Goenka College of Commerce and Business Administration (GCCBA) is one of the foremost colleges in its areas of study, situated in the metropolis of Kolkata. The city of Kolkata is also the capital of West Bengal, and one of the leading commercial hubs in the country. The college was founded way back in the year 1903, when Kolkata, then known as Calcutta was the capital of British India. It has been affiliated to the University of Calcutta since 1931. This affiliation ensures the approval of the UGC (University Grants Commission). Some courses here, have also been recognized by the AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education). The GCCBA has seen its campus being moved around much. Its present location on Bipin Behari Ganguly Street has been since 1951. 

The college has been named after its patrons- the Goenka family. The Goenkas remain among the top business families in Kolkata. They have also been patrons in education since long, having opened and then developed multiple such institutions, all over the country. Its footprint has been the strongest in eastern India. The Goenka College of Commerce and Business Administration has also earned the accreditation of the NAAC, earning an A grade rating in it. A separate IQAC (Internal Quality Assurance Cell) has been created to this end, to ensure that all the terms of the NAAC are complied with. An AQAR (Annual Quality Assurance Report) gets generated to quantify the results.

A number of courses are taught, here at the Kolkata- based Goenka College of Commerce and Business Administration. As the college’s name would suggest, these courses are to do with the commerce and management areas. At the undergrad level, there is the B. Com, for which the GCCBA initially built its reputation on. At the master’s level, there is the M. Com. An MBA has also now been introduced in here. The entire academics here at the GCCBA, is run by a cohort of nine departments. At the broader level, there are those for Commerce and for Economics. The languages of English and Hindi also find mention. 

Specialized areas of departments exist for Accountancy, Business Law and for Business Mathematics & Statistics. There is also the Department of Business Organization, Management and Secretarial Practices. And to close it up, there is the Department of Bengali, for the upkeep of the language. Research too plays a very important role in the development of the Goenka College of Commerce and Business Administration in Kolkata. For this purpose, the college releases its periodic journal, where all its research findings get chronicled. It is known as the Academic Journal of Goenka College of Commerce and Business Administration. The college also gets a number of third- party research projects generated. 

These projects are funded by government or industry bodies such as the UGC in this case. Several seminars also get conducted on campus. Some of the topics where these seminars have been conducted in recent times includes GST (Goods and Services Tax), IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) and economic freedom. The GCCBA has also paid a lot of importance to the broader social good. This is the reason that students studying here have participated in several central and state government schemes. Participation has been strong in schemes such as the NSS (National Service Scheme). A Grievance Redressal Cell also exists to look into any matters of grievance or objective feedback to be provided. 

Another area of much importance to the institute is entrepreneurship. This is why the Entrepreneurship Development Cell (EDC) has been an active forum here. It helps develop the budding entrepreneurs among the students for the institute. Experienced trainers and entrepreneurs are invited to campus to deliver guest lectures and interact with those who have such business models. Key focus is paid here towards the MSME (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises) segment. This EDC works closely with national institutions based in the same state such as the IIM Calcutta, St. Xavier’s Kolkata and the IIT Kharagpur. The NFTE University in the USA has also been one such international collaborator. 

The campus has much to offer. PG facilities are available in the campus’s vicinity for both boys and girls. Banking facilities with ATM, convenience stores, medical centres and access to public transport may all be availed immediately outside the campus. There is a sports field where cricket and football may be played. Facilities are also there for indoor sports. The gymnasium may also be used by all. A large auditorium is there to facilitate major events, at both intra and inter college level. The campus has adequate internet facilities. Hygienic food is served at the college cafeteria. The library here is one of the best stocked within the region. Besides the physical books on display, it also provides digital access to en number of international academic journals for research and academic purposes.

Very good college

Posted on 13 Feb' 17 by shivam tekriwal
Batch of Jan. 1, 2016 | B.Com Hons
It is one of the best colleges in Calcutta University. It has Common room, play room and an outdoor play area. No internships are offered or provided by the college.This should be started to provide better industry exposure. Nice students, awesome teachers and lots of events make the college life way interesting. Placements are not so good, college could have worked on this. Mr. Principal is the best as regard to his knowledge and his way of dealing with student's problems. You can find students from all across the region here. Though it comprises of mostly local students, there are students who are from outside too, most of them CA course, hence providing a perfect balance. The annual fees is not more than Rs. 1000 so makes it super affordable.

College is off-of the known best, providing high-class educational facilities. Though there are many groups inside the management, they all come up with the best approach for the students. What all is needed apart from the support of the faculties in shaping your future.

Wonderful Experience

Goenka College of Commerce and Business Administration encloses within its cloisters a rich cultural legacy of a century. Here, within its four high walls, the soil smells fresh with the fragrance of memories of the by gone times when commercial studies began to put its footprints into the ever widening horizon of new thoughts and knowledge. With the gradual march of time, the study of commerce anchored its roots firmly and Goenka College became the premier institution of teaching commerce in the city of Kolkata.

I obviously like my college very much. The dean or principal of the college is a very good person, though he is strict. The faculty and nonteaching members also OK. The best commerce college in Kolkata has everything except a good infrastructure and a good crowd. The student union sucks and you dont believe how some people who are really vogus get admission to such an institution. Though the canteen and play room doesnt have much to offer, still the three years I spent was good.

What is the date of application for entrance exam of 2018

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 2nd Mar, 2019
Dear Lenin, were you enquiring about 2019 by any chance? Even if it is 2018 or 2019, the Admission procedure for B.Com (Hons), M.Com starts usually in the month of June after the declaration of results of HS Examination by WBCHSE. There is no entrance examination for the admission into these courses. The admissions are based on merit based on your 10+2. To be eligible for this course, you shpuld have scored a minimum aggregate of 75% in your 10+2.  However if this is for MBA, then you should qualify in CMAT. You should have scored a minimum aggregate of 55% in your Bachelor's degree.
