About the Department

The Post-graduate Department of Commerce was started in 1979 as one of the two departments, which were started along with the establishment of Post- graduate center at Davangere. The Commerce Department was started in this area, which is considered to be an important commercial city in the state, and it would benefit the students of this area. The P.G. Centre was under the control of University of Mysore. When the Kuvempu University was formed in 1987, the P.G.Centre was brought under the purview of Kuvempu University, so also the Department of Commerce.  However, the center got separated from Kuvempu University and given the university status under the banner of Davangere University on 18th August, 2009.
