Anticipating the importance of commerce education in the years to come the management of K.E College was of the opinion that the college must have its contribution in meeting the demands of the business and industrial world and decided to start commerce education in the college. The pre-degree commerce group was started in 1981 with a sanctioned strength of 80 students. The commerce department was established during 1982 with the starting of B.Com course having 34 students on the rolls and Mr. A. J. Mani and M. George Sebastian in the faculty. Prof. J. John who joined the department after a notable period of service in S.H College Thevara was appointed H.O.D in 1983. Mr. Babu Joseph also joined the faculty during this period.

The Goals and Objectives of the Commerce department are in tune with the C.M.I Vision of education. We, through commerce education, aim at forming leaders who are intellectually competent, spiritually mature, morally upright, psychologically integrated, physically healthy and socially acceptable, who will champion the cause of justice, love, truth and peace and who are ever open to further growth. The commerce faculty aspires towards creating a just and humane society, where dignity of the human person is respected, where unjust social structures are challenged, where our cultural heritage, religious harmony and national integration is upheld and where the poor and the marginalised are specially taken care of.
