40 Why Recruit Us? Economics, a social science and highly inter-disciplinary subject still remains one of the most sought after courses by recruiters in both the corporate and research arena. At SSE we believe that a mere theoretical understanding of the subject will not enable any of the stakeholders- students, professors and the institution as a whole, to grow. Thus our aim is to inculcate the right 'skills' and 'attitude' in the students who will become policy makers in the future. The MSc. Program provides our students opportunities to develop employable skills through the following dimensions of the course: Evaluation: An example of how we ensure that traditional economics and coursework taught can be interpreted by students in the real world scenario is through our rigorous internal evaluation systems. This internal evaluation consists of research papers, assignments, presentations and quiz. Each component carries equal importance in judging student's originality, creativity and most importantly their ability to apply what they have learnt. Research: Research and development is a core component of any modern day business/industry. Students undergo a rigorous research methodology course that augments their abilities as a researcher. The research papers and assignments along with internships undertaken by the students provides them with a better understanding of the global economic scenario and issues and also make them more capable in performing tasks in an efficacious manner. Data Analysis: The technical skill sets acquired by the students through the course of the programme, which comprises of time series analysis, modeling,forecasting and the use of various software provides them with the opportunity to handle the strenuous task of analyzing the large pool of economic data. Policy Analysis: The economic indicators governing the market forces of the country are influenced by the decisions taken by policy makers. The Students are equipped with the required knowledge of understanding the market forces and subsequent effects of the policies on the economy. 40

41 Why Recruit Us? Economic Journalism: The various clubs and cultural events of the college provide a platform for the students to the voice their opinions on the economic scenario and issues through debates, group discussions and various new media instruments such as podcasts, presentations and short films. Many of students undertake internships in the field of economic journalism. Thus the students are able to paint an unbiased and informative picture of various economic changes and policy effects that take place worldwide. Development Sector: The institute offers a rigorous and comprehensive course on Development Economics which facilitates a clear understanding of the economics behind the working of the development sector and the various problems faced in that area. The wide work experiences of the faculty from different areas of the development sector further gives a first-hand account of the way things work in these areas, providing a clear and authentic perspective of the work life in the development sector. Given the exhaustive course, an excellent faculty as well as the experiences gained by interning in a diverse range of organisations both in the public and private sectors, students are well prepared for work in the government as well as non- government organisations in the development sector, urban economic development, research institutes and think tanks, corporate social governance and policy making. We look forward for your support and invite you to be part of the campus placement. 41
