Shri Ram College of Commerce or SRCC is one of the colleges within University of Delhi granting undergraduate and graduate degrees.[1] Founded in 1926 in New Delhi, it is one of the oldest and most prestigious institutes of higher learning in Commerce and Economics in India. Current under-graduate students and former students of the college are colloquially known as SRites.

History & evolution[edit]

SRCC was established by educationist and industrialist, late Lala Shri Ram. Apart from SRCC, he also owned the erstwhile famous company, DCM Shriram. The institute was established first in Daryaganj and shifted to its present location in the North Campus, Delhi University only in 1957. The present location is 17 acres (69,000 m2) campus with large educational and recreational areas.

Courses and departments[edit]

The institute is highly focussed into areas of expertise and offers courses in the commerce and economics streams only. The undergraduate and graduate programs offered are -

  • Bachelor of Commerce (Honors)
  • Bachelor of Arts - Economics (Honors)
  • Master of Commerce
  • Master of Arts - Economics
  • Post Graduate Diploma in Management[1]

SRCC started awarding undergraduate degrees in 1932 and graduate degrees in 1948. It received its present name and form in 1951. Although SRCC has accepted female students since 1933, it became truly co-educational only in 1957. The institute started an International Business MBA equivalent course in 1999, called the "Post Graduate Diploma in Global Business Operations" (GBO).[2]
