Programme Details

Master of Arts Economics (Interdisciplinary Masters Programme)

  • Bangalore Central Campus
  • Open From : 05-Nov-2020
  • Open Until : 18-Feb-2021


The MA Economics programme aims to form students with deep knowledge of economic theory and skill in empirical methodology to form ethically well-grounded students with ability for incisive reasoning. The programme seeks to strike a sound balance between theory and application along with an interdisciplinary dimension without diminishing the focus on Economics. This approach is meant to help students face the dynamic challenges in terms of academics and the market. In line with this approach the programme has a combination of courses related to economic theory, methodology and two streams of specialisations which, on the one hand meet the needs of corporate employment and on the other create the ability of applying economic theory to development problems of the country. More specifically students will be equipped to take up careers in academics, business consulting and analytics, civil society and activist organisations, the public sector and international civil services.

Class Timings
Morning : 6:30 AM to 8:30 AM    Evening : 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

 

The programme is offered trimester-wise with twelve core courses and six open electives. Each course will earn four credits. Core and elective courses will be offered in a staggered manner and will have to be completed within the maximum duration of the programme.
