The objectives of teaching Commerce are:

• To develop an interest in the theory and practice of business, trade and industry.

• To familiarize candidates with theoretical foundations, organizing, managing and handling operations of a business firm.

• To provide a study of the more important aspects of the commercial world.

• To provide knowledge of the activities of commerce in the marketing of goods and services.

Accordingly, the Indian Council for Secondary Examinations has designed the syllabi with the primary objective of imparting knowledge of the various commercial activities and their effective management. This focus thus provides opportunities for pursuing future courses of study and professions that are both socially useful and economically fruitful.
