DSE, New Delhi

D-SCHOOL, THE BEST PLACE TO STUDY ECONOMICS IN THE COUNTRY

  • 6.8/10Ratings

    REMARKS

    There use to be talks by eminent personalities from all over India. They are really good and insightful. Besides, DSE organizes Winter School, an annual lecture series and paper presentations, in which scholars from various big universities in the world come and speak.

  • FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES

    The fee is 8000 Rs per year, which I think is very cheap for such a good course. This should be viewed taking into account the quality of education as well as the high placement package the companies offer.

  • 8 /10Ratings

    PLACEMENT WING

    Almost hundred percent placement have been provided for those who have been eligible for placements over the years. Placement process takes place for internship too. The companies visiting the campus are mostly MNCs - JPMorgan, Nomura, Walmart, Citibank, P&G etc. The highest package is around 28 LPA and the minimum is around 10 LPA. The average package is ariund 13-14 LPA. The stipend for internship ranges from 10,000 to 1,20,000 depending on the company.

  • ADMISSION

    I applied for the programme and took the entrance. I was fortunate enough to get a seat and joined. Half of the seats (more than 115) are open for entrance-mode admission and the rest are open for merit-mode (only for DU students).

  • ALUMNI

    The alumni network is very useful for placements. Most of the companies are contacted through alumnus who have been students of DSE. Since DSE graduates are there at top posts in various MNCs, they are very helpful.

  • 8 /10Ratings

    FACULTY

    The faculty are world class. Most of them have done their PhDs from Ivy league and other famous universities in the world.Many of them have taught at foreign universities too. However, like in any other college, there will be professors whose mode of teaching you like and whose you don't. They are definitely resourceful anyway, and are food researchers themselves.

    CAMPUS LIFE

    There aren't much extracurricular activities going on in the college. The social services wing is active and they do various activities like donation drive, blood donation camp etc. from time to time. Some students take initiatives to organize discussions on social issues and all but the participation are usually very scanty.

  • 10 /10Ratings

    COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

    The course curriculum is extremely good. In the first year, there are 6 compulsory courses, 3 each in each semester. There is also an optional course to be done in three second semester. In each of the second-year semesters, four optionals courses must be done. Details about the courses can be seen in the college website. The end term exam usually arw problem - solving than essays (for most courses) as DSE is known for its rigorous mathematical treatment of the courses. Pass rates therefore becomes low sometimes.

    COLLEGE EVENTS

    DSE is particularly not famous for its festivities. There is a fest called Ahaan which gets celebrated annually, and then there is a graduation ceremony for second years. I don't think it give your the great vibes that your undergrad fests did.

  • LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS

    There are a lot of scholarships available for general as well students from different categories. You can get the details from college website. Besides you can apply for government scholarships too. One important scholarship is the Dr. Manmohan Singh Scholarship.

DSE- Behind the Walls

Remarks -

College is overall superb. It's worth spending two years for post graduate program. The crowd is exceptionally good, with people coming from several renowned undergraduate programs across the country such as St. Stephens, SRCC, IITs.

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.

Remarks -

This is the best and most affordable university in entire country. Students come from every background in this university. The diversity it provides in terms of International students and students from marginalized sections, amplifies the quality of classroom many times.

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.


Entrance Preview -

I took JNU entrance exam and I scored 60 out of 100 and I opted because this is the best University in India for Economics

great campus

Remarks -

The campus is very beautiful, has all the necessities for the students but the college management could be better.


Entrance Preview -

I appeared for Common Entrance Test (CET) and cleared it with 28 rank. I opted for this college because there was no other college of IP University offered the same course. I also appeared for entrance exams to get admission in IIMC and Jamia Milia Islamia but didn't clear them so I took admission in the only college of IPU which offered MMC.

Still in confusion

Remarks -

SAU is good in faculty and curriculum but its not good in facilities. Sau don't have any good campus. It feels like that one is coming in an institute to attend classes. Despite having great fees i.e. almost 30k per semester they provide us with zero facilities. Its a place for hostllers. Students coming from other states can find this place heaven. But for day scholars like me its like a punishment. I don't feel like going to college as you are excluded. Either they should have hostels for everyone or they should have other facilities.


Entrance Preview -

I gave Sau entrance last year for the course I am currently enrolled. They shortlisted 72 students and among them I was the one. They didn't give any score card. Shortlisting process depends from course to course. In other courses they shortlisted nearly about 150 students as well.

After spearheading a non-profit organization after completing my engineering course is a learning experience but to enrich fine nuances of social work compelled me to take admission in Masters in Social Work(MSW) and after taking counselling from Academicians of repute I found that IGNOU is the best platform for working professional like us.

Many students were placed from the university placement cell .But i did not appear in any of the placement because my aim different from this and the salary is also very much impressive.


Course Curriculum -

Actually the course work of M.A in geography is very much different here from other universities. It is divided in 4 semesters with four papers in each semester.

I appeared for Jawaharlal Nehru Entrance Exam (JNUEE) for M.A. in Ancient History. The marks I scored were 68 out of 100. 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 ...


Placement -

Did not get a chance venture the placement cell and other job opportunities during my time in JNU for the reasons mentioned above.
