Prithvi Narayan Campus, Pokhara, Nepal

Department of Research Management

Commerce education in Nepal was started in Tri-Chandra Campus on 17 Bhadra 2011 BS and coincidently Prithvi Narayan Campus was also established on the same day (17 Bhadra) in 2017 BS. Each year Bhadra 17 is celebrated as the 'Commerce Day' by the faculty members as well as students of commerce across the country and as the ‘Campus Day’ by PN Campus.

Commerce education was started in PN Campus in Bhadra 2026 BS with 11 students who were admitted for the Intermediate of Commerce (I.Com) class. In 2033 BS, the Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com) class was started in this campus with 25 students. The number of students for the I.Com was 39 in 2033 BS. The Master of Commerce (M.Com) was introduced in the campus in 2047 BS and 149 students were got admission into the programme.

Shiva Pujan Yadav, who was a faculty member to teach the courses in commerce, was the first scholar to initiate the opening of commerce education in the campus. Mr. Yadav was followed by Ganesh Man Palikhe and Ananda Raj Mulmi who contributed a lot in the promotion of commerce education in Pokhara. When the new education policy was introduced in 2030 BS by the Nepal government, the campus formed 3 instruction committees to look after the management of commerce classes: Management Instruction Committee, Account Instruction Committee and Finance Instruction Committee. These instruction committees were effective until 2042 BS when all instruction committees under Tribhuvan University were converted into the departments.

Now, in PN Campus, there are 3 academic programmes running under the Faculty of Management: Bachelor of Business Studies (BBS), Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Master of Business Studies (MBS).
