About the Programme

The MA in Economics is a terminal master’s program that equips its graduates with the advanced knowledge and quantitative skills required for an economic analyst in the business world, the consulting industry, a central bank or government. The training provides a thorough understanding of fundamental economic principles, application of mathematical methods and modeling, and the use of computer software for large-scale data analysis. It is accomplished through the economics core and elective courses.

The course will give foundational knowledge of both pure and applied economics, with a focus on qualitative and quantitative economics. It put an emphasis on understanding and applying economics through experiential learning and hands-on activities, apart from classroom learning. The objective is to help the economics student strengthen domain knowledge and to hone applied skills that are needed in the real-world workplace.

The course provides practical exposure in terms of research and field practice and the weightage is more than 22%.
