In this changing world order and a globalised environment, Economics is emerging as a crucial 'science', the understanding of which is rooted in the Humanities, the application of which is based on Quantitative Methods and the impact of which is all pervasive whether it be International Relations and Politics, Finance, Management or Business. It is the recognition of these inter –linkages, which has led NMIMS, in its pioneering role, to set up the Sarla Anil Modi School of Economics and to introduce the innovative undergraduate B.Sc. (Economics) program.
The program, with its innovative pedagogy, contemporary curriculum incorporating the latest developments in Economics, along with the enhancement of soft skills and a blend of theory with practice, seeks to provide holistic education. The mission of our institution is to provide to the nation good quality, trained human resources who have analytical minds, are socially sensitive, and who can, through their knowledge, ability and endeavor, make meaningful contributions to the economy and society in which they live.
The innovative B.Sc. Economics program started in 2010 by the SVKM NMIMS’ Sarla Anil Modi School of Economics is a three-year full-time program with Electives in Economics, Finance and Business Management. This program has six semesters.
The objectives of the unique B.Sc. Economics program of SAMSOE are to:
The graduate level program is designed to challenge the mind, stimulate intellectual growth and make college life an exciting journey. The emphasis is on the overall development of the student, not only in academics, but also in co curricular activities. Students gain practical exposure through summer training, which provides an opportunity to develop Analytical, Quantitative, Written and Oral communication skills-that are valued by employers.
Thus the program not only lays the foundation for students to study further but also readies them for employment. It aids in inculcating values, to make the student a more responsible and socially aware citizen.
Students can specialize in the final year in Finance, Business or Economics.
