Quality education is fundamental right of every student especially in higher education when a paradigm shift is going to take place in a student’s life as he is preparing himself to become capable enough to earn a decent livelihood for himself and his family. Traditional teaching pedagogy has its own role in imparting basic knowledge but practical exposure and real-life industry experience play a vital role in preparing the students to understand the demands and challenges of real work environment. This fact has already been established in case of students pursuing science and engineering courses that industrial visits and talks are very crucial for them to grasp the job requirements. Though, role and importance of industrial visits is still needed to be established in case of students of commerce and business.
Therefore, the present paper attempts to ascertain the significance of industrial visits for commerce and business students with the help of a survey carried out to determine the value of industrial visits as compared to theoretical knowledge imparted in the classrooms. To serve the purpose, views of students pursuing B Com (H) and BBA from Delhi School of Professional Studies and Research, Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University have been examined in terms of significance of industrial visits.
Results indicate that students acknowledge the role and importance of industrial visits in facilitating better knowledge and learning as regards to practical exposure and real-life industry experience in comparison of theoretical knowledge imparted in the classrooms. Moreover, they also acknowledge the fact that learning obtained via industrial visits has far-reaching impact and is long-lasting. Thus, the present study remains successful in establishing the role and importance of industrial visits in case of commerce and business students as well.
