Ans. The point which needs to be addressed at first is that Delhi School of Economics doesn't provide any BA Economics course as of now. Though, many of the other colleges under Delhi University offer this course. The admission procedure starts with the evaluation of the performance in 12th standard boards. Both BA Economics and Bachelors in Business Economics (BBE) indeed provide great career opportunities. Though, few factors need to be considered before making a choice. Here are some of the factors mentioned below. Firstly, the question arises in the mind is about the enjoyment one gets while practicing maths. If the answer is no, then it is highly recommended to go for BBE as BA Economics includes a lot of maths. Secondly, it is regarding the interest in learning about the working of economy or functioning of a business. Students keen to learn about the working of economy should opt for BA Economics while students interested to know about the functioning of business may opt for BBE. Then it is about the future aspirations. If you are interested in research, teaching, and academics then opt for BA Economics. Though, both BBE and BA Economics are suitable options for those who are heading towards the corporate sector. Finally it is your decision to shape the future. You need to be certain about your future goals. If you are opting to pursue MBA, you can go for any of the two courses available. Though, students who are willing to pursue MA in economics, should definitely pursue BA Economics without any doubts.Read more
Ans. Delhi School of Economics, Madras School of Economics, and Mumbai School of Economics and Public Policy are reputed institutes for offering quality education in Economics. If you are considering the Mumbai region, Mumbai University’s Kalina campus is a good institute to do a Master’s in economics. The college has a good syllabus which covers almost 8 core papers in the first two semesters. Students get the opportunity of doing a summer internship which is assisted by MSEPP. These internships ensure students can confidently enter the corporate world after completing their courses. In the Mumbai region, IGIDR and MSEPP are the best options for pursuing MA in Economics with good curriculums. IGIDR should be the first preference if you can score well enough in the entrance exam. A close second is MSEPP but it has a heavy dropout percentage.Read more
