Alumni Speak:

  • testimonial image 1
    While commencing the B. Sc. Economics program, I knew that I was up for a taxing journey; however, little did I know that it would be so enjoyable and fruitful at the same time. During the start of my first term here, it honestly felt like someone woke me up from my slumber. Over time, some of the modules not only helped me get an insight into Economics but also helped me really enhance my interest. A key part of this course is that it is much updated. To quote an example, we had a course module called, ‘Ecode’ which was completely dedicated to current economic affairs; something that is unheard of in Indian universities. In our final year, we had to choose an elective between Economics, Finance and Business; this forced us to think about which area we wanted to explore ahead that eventually helped a lot of us find our calling. Even the assignments given by our professors were very unique, some of the most interesting assignments that we’ve had involved analysing movies from a certain economic standpoint, analysing policies and its impact on various parties, finding out pure retaliatory trade barriers between countries and analysing corporate cases and critically solving their problems.

    Since we were a small group of students, there was also scope for everyone to take part in organising co-curricular activities, which helped us learn a lot about group dynamics and the world outside college. A combination of good course content, innovative teaching, close faculty interaction, co-curricular activities and a brilliant peer group makes the B. Sc. Economics program, a perfect fit for anyone wanting to explore the world of economics, finance, business or policy.

    We were the first batch of the school and I am proud to be part of Sarla Anil Modi School of Economics. The inter-disciplinary choice of courses, professional approach, attention to detail, practical application of theory, constant revision, and different learning methods, all equipped me with skills that helped pave the pathway to my career ahead. The school, especially the professors, made a constant effort and shared their knowledge, gave us timely feedback, engaged us in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities and encouraged us to explore our varying interests. I took a keen interest in development economics which led me to pursue my Masters in Public Policy at the Hertie School of Governance, Germany. The approach of the school is at par with international standards and that really helps me cope with my studies now.
