Profile of Ness Wadia College of CommerceESTABLISHMENT OF THE COLLEGE
The background of the Ness Wadia College of Commerce can be traced back to June 1959 when the first Pre-degree Commerce class was started under the auspices of the Modern Education Society. The class then used to be held in the adjacent building of the Nowrosjee Wadia College of Arts and Science. In the years that followed the endeavor met with an increasingly enthusiastic response from the student community and soon a need to establish a full-fledged commerce college was keenly felt.
In 1969, the Commerce wing, thus, came to be established as an independent college of commerce, named after Sir Ness Wadia, (1873-1952), the renowned industrialist and philanthropist of his times. The Modern Education Society is deeply indebted to Sir Ness as well as his brother Sir Cusrow for their unstinting support to its endeavor. The College moved into its present premises with a building of its own in 1971.The College was inaugurated on 15th July 1969, by Dr. H. V. Pataskar, the then Vice-chancellor of the University of Pune. It moved into its present premises with a building of its own in 1971.

SECTION - III : OVERALL ANALYSIS

The college, right from its inception promoted cosmopolitan outlook in its functioning. Students of this college come from a wide spectrum of the society and imbibe the spirit of unity among diversity. Admission of overseas students also is strengthening this approach. The students of the college are encouraged to participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. Many of its students brought laurels to the institution in sports and games, N.C.C. activities etc. The activities of the Samata Mandal , Book Lovers' Group, Entrepreneurship Seminars are innovative and are contributing to the empowerment of the students. Quite a number of its past students have made a mark in business, teaching, professions like Chartered Accountancy etc.
The teaching faculty of the college is well qualified. Out of 38 teachers 14 hold Ph.D. degrees, 12 are qualified for M.Phil. degree and 6 teachers have registered for Ph.D. Two teachers are pursuing M.Phil. Degree. Many teachers are engaged in active research and are also promoting research culture among their students.

Some of the cadets availed youth exchange programmes and visited other countries. Some have joined defense services. Community orientation is encouraged through N.S.S. activities.
Growth and excellence are processes and not events. While appreciating the role played by Ness Wadia College of Commerce in empowering its students through its academic and other programmes, the Peer Team would like to draw its attention to the following suggestions.
The campus on which the college is located is under great pressure. The management may examine the possibility of shifting the recently started institutions elsewhere. The Peer Team is happy to note that the management has already initiated steps for shifting the M.E.S. College of Engineering to a different location in Pune.
The library needs more space as the total student strength using the library (Senior and Junior Wing) is around 3500. Internet facility in the library may also be increased.
Computer awareness has become a must to the students in general and commerce students in particular. The college may update its computer laboratory and offer short-term certificate courses of various duration to spread computer literacy among all its students.
The career guidance cell of the college needs strengthening. The cell should display on continuous basis, employment opportunities in central and state government undertakings, public service commissions, various sectors of private enterprise and other agencies. A small library for competitive examinations and coaching facilities for these examinations may also be organized. These steps will also lead to the strengthening of the placement cell.
Communication skills in English language have become very necessary for students aspiring to work at National and International level. The college may examine the possibility of establishing the English language communication laboratory to be run on self financing basis. This will help the Marathi medium students of the college in improving their English language communication skill.
The Peer Team is happy to note that the college is taking keen interest in promoting entrepreneurship among its students. An 'Entrepreneurship Development Cell' may be established for arranging regular interactive sessions between students and successful businessmen, industrialist, and other entrepreneurs. These steps may eventually motivate some students to envisage an entrepreneurial in their future.
The Peer Team is happy to note that many teachers of the college have qualified for research degrees and some are in the process of getting these qualifications. The Peer Team suggests that other teachers may also be encouraged to complete their doctoral programmes within 3 to 5 years. The Team is also happy that many teachers are doing post doctoral work in some form or other. This trend may be continued and proposals for more minor / major research projects may be submitted to the U.G.C. for undertaking research in various fields of studies.
Higher education is passing through a critical stage. Its relevance to the students and the community in general is being scrutinized very closely by different sections of the society. The college may in consultation with the management prepare a vision document incorporating the strategies it would adopt in the coming 5 to 7 years to meet the challenges emerging out of changing socio-economic scenario and the policies of the government towards higher education.
The Peer Team places on record its appreciation to the institution for its cooperation during the visit.

Every student can get two forms only but those students who want to apply for admission in bifocal can purchase one more application form.

Till then, the admission will be done on a provisional basis but after that, the students need to submit the passing certificate from the CBSE board to the concerned colleges to confirm the admission, he said.
The attested copy of mark sheets, school leaving certificate and if required, a true copy of caste certificate have to be submitted while submitting the forms. Do not enclose any original documents with the admission forms.
