The University of Delhi School of Economics, by Dr. Benoy Berry

Earning my Master’s degree at the University of Delhi School of Economics heightened my expertise in international finance and taught me concepts I use to this day. The school is considered one of the leaders in its field in India and South Asia.

In 1949, India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, involved himself in the creation of the School of Economics, as part of a wider effort to promote the social sciences in developing nations. Through several reorganizations, economics retained its departmental status and was recognized as a Centre for Advanced Study.

Courses offered in the MA program include microeconomic theory, macroeconomic theory, econometrics, and Indian economic policy. Students write papers on a variety of topics, and all teaching and examinations are conducted in English.

Many Master’s students move on to prestigious doctoral programs at home and abroad. The placement program finds jobs in many leading corporations; policy research groups also recruit graduates.
