It is mandatory for students to attend and participate in the seminars. Resource persons of eminence in the field are invited to grace the seminar and provide their valuable inputs for the successful achievement of the objective behind conducting seminars. All the students are required to submit a written report about the seminar and on the topic after every seminar to assess their understanding from the seminar.

Freshers Day celebration in a department, to welcome the newly admitted batch of student in a friendly atmosphere, encourage their creative impulses, and boost their confidence, is a regular feature of the schools.

School of Commerce & Economics, KIIT not only focuses on the simple teaching-learning process, but also creates a joyful family like environment to keep its members motivated and enthusiastic. In spite of being a new department with its first batch of students, KSCE didn’t keep its kids deprived of the freshers’ party excitement, joy, enthusiasm, laughter and happiness. The fresher’s day, “JIGYASA 2k19” was organized by the department for its students. The event started with the KIIT Anthem sung by the students of M.Com.& B.Com. namely, Nandini Mohanty & Tejaswee Tripathy. A formal welcome and introduction of guest was done by Mr. Himanshu Agarwall, Assistant Professor, KSCE. It was followed by address to the students by Prof. Jayanta Kumar Parida, Director; Prof. Sasmita Samanta, Pro Vice Chancellor, KIIT; Prof. Hrushikesha Mohanty, Vice Chancellor, KIIT. The lovely KIITians were then welcomed, interacted, and motivated by the Honorable founder of KIIT & KISS, Prof. (Dr.) Achyuta Samanta sir. Post lunch, various cultural activities were arranged along with games and competitions to instill fun and frolic among the students, in the presence of the faculty members. Finally, the event ended with distribution of various awards and trophies, DJ enjoyment, and a lot of merry making.

The entire program was a grand success with the best compliment received from the authorities stating, “Creation of an imprint in the history of KIIT by self-singing of the KIIT Anthem so aptly and nicely by the students.”


As said by Francis Bacon that “Travelling in the younger sort is part of education, while in the elder sort it is part of experience”, thus, corroborating the quote aforementioned our honorable Director of KSCE, Prof. Jayanta Kumar Parida felt the need for organizing an educational visit for the students so that they can better understand the intricacies involved when we apply the theoretical concepts learned in the classroom into practical work environment. Recognizing the importance of field trips and industrial visits, KSCE also organized the same to NALCO, Angul for both the M.Com. & B.Com. students of the school. The main objective behind the visit was to provide an opportunity to have the practical knowledge and exposures to real working environment, industrial practices, & the technology. It was a great and enriching experience for the students in terms of knowledge and experience which further motivated as well a
