The two-year Master of Arts programme in Economics (MA in Economics) is a one-of-its-kind graduate programme in India. The programme is academically rigorous, with a focus on interdisciplinarity and practical exposure, jointly offered by the School of Arts and Sciences and Amrut Mody School of Management.
The programme is grounded in theoretical and quantitative analysis in the field of Economics. It emphasises on the development of analytical skills and practical exposure through internships, and aims to build sensitivity among the students towards contemporary economic and social issues. It also focuses on enabling them to understand the emerging drivers of economic activity, both at local and global levels.
Exposure to the World
The programme engages a unique pedagogy with project-based learning and a stint as an intern in the corporate, financial or development sector as per the inclination of the student. The Masters dissertation with a hands-on approach will help the students to identify, understand and resolve a real life problem in the industry or development sector.
Recognising the importance of an interdisciplinary approach, this programme encourages and provides scope to study subjects outside the realm of Economics. The programme benefits from its position within the School of Arts and Sciences and Amrut Mody School of Management, with diverse faculty in liberal arts, management, natural and mathematical sciences.
