St. Joseph's College of Commerce , often referred to as SJCC, is a Bangalore University-affiliated college operated by the Jesuits. However, it is autonomous and has an independent examination and recognition system. It is situated in central Bangalore at Brigade Road. St. Joseph's is accredited to the National Assessment and Accreditation Council at the 5-star level, and was rated one of the top ten commerce institutions in India for five consecutive years by the magazine India Today. Standing apart from other colleges, St. Joseph's has established itself as a platform for aspiring leaders, by providing all-round development. Academics apart, the institution encourages its students to involve themselves in extra-curricular activities, with a whirlwind of opportunities available for collegians throughout the year. The college traces its history to 1882, when the Missions Etrangeres' de Paris established St Joseph's European High School. Its operations were handed to the Jesuits in 1937 and the Department of Commerce created in 1949. In 1972, St. Joseph's College was divided, with its College of Arts and Sciences and its College of Commerce becoming independent, although both remain under the administration of the Bangalore Jesuit Educational Society. The students are popularly known as Josephites. St. Joseph's official motto is 'Fide Et Labore', meaning 'Faith and Toil.'
