DSE, New Delhi

GOOD PLACE FOR QUANTITATIVE ECONOMICS.

  • 7.3/10Ratings

    REMARKS

    Overall, good college. Good for corporate jobs as well as for higher studies. However, a lot of effort need to be put from the students.

  • ENTRANCE PREVIEW

    DSE has it's own entrance examination. This is the best college for Economics, and hence I chose this.

  • FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES

    Tuition fees and college fees - Rs 13000 for two years. Placement cell membership fees - Rs 12000 for two years. No other expenditure on college front. One of the cheapest college in India, and best Returns on Investment (RoI). Affordable without any debate.

    PLACEMENT WING

    Companies - PnG, Citi, Nomura, Amex, Goldman Sachs, RBS, ICICI, Essex Lake, Target, HP, Genpact Highest package - Rs 15.6 LPA Average package - Rs 8 LPA Out of 91 students, around 78 got placed, and remember that year was affected by Greek crisis. Data for 2010-2012 batch.

    HOSTEL FACILITIES

    Delhi University hostels. Generally shared by 2 students, may be from same stream or some Masters level students from other departments. Hostel includes bed and wifi at Rs 250 per month. Mess includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food was okay. Non-Veg food 4 days a week, special dinner once a month. Mess costs Rs 700 per month

  • ALUMNI

    No alumni network as such. However, seniors generally help the juniors. They can provide you notes, study materials, previous years question papers.

  • 9 /10Ratings

    FACULTY

    The best faculty in India. 70% of the faculty have PhD from the top universities in the world, for example Princeton, Berkeley, Cornell, Boston, as well as the best colleges from India like ISI. The quality of teaching would be the best in India, and faculty are always engaged in latest research activities.

  • 7 /10Ratings

    CAMPUS LIFE

    You will find more female students compared to male students. No sports facilities, sports are not organized officially through the department. However, students are free to organize anything. Students are involved in NGO activities, Magazines writings and publications, Quizzes, Debates etc. Annual fest is marked by speech by eminent economists, followed by street drama, evening songs and dance etc.

  • EXAM STRUCTURE

    No compulsion on attendance, hence chilled out life. But, out of 160 students who took admission in 1st year, around 60 students failed to get promoted to second year. So, you live in constant fear of failure in exam. 2 internals of 15 marks each and a final exam of 70 marks.

  • 8 /10Ratings

    COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

    DSE curriculum has a lot and lot of maths and stats. Linear Algebra has been an integral part in courses on game theory, micro economics etc. So, expect to crunch a lot of matrix, vectors, eigen values, N X M’s in DSE. This will be very helpful for higher studies in PhD. However, in case you don't like mathematics that much, or you are more interested in the theoretical part of it, for example the policies, the economic interpretations etc, this should not be the first choice.

JNU: Where everybody gets a chance!

Remarks -

According to me, coming to JNU has been an life-altering experience for me. It has taught to embrace people from different backgrounds equally and also lended me the confidence to speak out my mind, even when it is not a popular opinion, whenever I want to. Also, the freedom of personal space that one can enjoy in this campus, without falling prey to any judgement, is also very inspiring and motivating.

About the University

Remarks -

The work culture is very intense at TERI. It's needs to be a little eased out with a few number of subjects as we are studying 8 subjects in a single semester. Therefore it becomes very clogged up and intense by the end of the semester.

Magic which is real

Remarks -

This is one of the best institutions of India and I'm proud to be here But there are many things to be improved. Like the infrastructure to be updated and also new hostels should be constructed. Also the management is mostly reluctant towards students issues. We have to protest to get our rights here.

The reasons for choosing JNU over any other could be as follows This University is one of the best in the capital even for that matter in the country for procuring Masters or M.phil/Ph.D Degrees. If I cleared the Entrance Exam of the best why go for other Since I had for foreseen that I was going to be staying in Delhi for a sufficient amount of time JNU seemed like the best ...
