Information about the department:
BBI is a full-time degree course spread over 3 years, with each year being divided into 2 semesters. The course covers 38 subjects and 2 projects on banking and insurance of 100 marks each, which are to be submitted in the final year. The class strength of 60 is optimal, since it allows for better student-teacher interaction and participation. The course is very professionally and effectively conducted, with highly qualified academics and professionals from the industry conducting the classes.
The pedagogy differs greatly from a conventional B.Com degree. In BBI, each paper is worth 100 marks which is further divided into a 60 mark theoretical exam conducted at the end of the semester and 40 marks internal assessment, which includes class presentations, projects, tests, class participation and attendance. The teaching methodology includes classroom discussions and debates, role play, case studies and paper presentations, in addition to the conventional chalk-and-talk method.
BBI realises the importance of interaction between the juniors and seniors and organises industrial visits and field trips in each semester. This gives the students a chance to bond and also gives them a chance to discover solutions to real world situations.
Our most recent achievement is “Entourage”, an inter-collegiate festival organised by JHC BBI department, which was started in the year 2009. This festival is organised by students from all three years and provides them with a platform to unleash their creative and organisational skills.
Jai Hind College also prides itself on providing excellent opportunities for internships and placements. Students get placed in renowned national and international banks, insurance companies and financial institutions. The department organises many guest lectures, where industry experts and corporate heads interact with students on syllabus related subjects and topics of general interest.
In addition to the above activities, the department arranges an orientation for the parents and students of the first year, a graduation ceremony for the third year and regular parent teacher meets for defaulters and weak students of all the three years to keep parents abreast of the performance of their ward.
