Department of Economics
The Department of Economics at Shiv Nadar Institution of Eminence is one of the premier Economics departments in India. Established in 2012, it has quickly established its reputation as one of the leading economics education and research centers. It aims to undertake research of the highest quality in Economics which enables and empowers citizens of the society in an ever-changing world and broadens the horizons of the discipline.
The department comprises faculty members with an active research agenda in various sub-disciplines in economics, including economic theory, macroeconomics, development economics, environmental economics, international trade, labor economics, health economics, public economics, political economy, and finance.
The department's spirit is to nurture high-quality, esoteric, and locally relevant research, actively. We pass on the same values to the next generation of economists through our faculty members' rigorous training in mathematical tools, computational skills, and an in-depth understanding of societal functioning.
Our uniquely designed academic program in Economics is both challenging and exciting, balanced between expanding theoretical knowledge and developing hands-on data-handling skills. With that vision, the department has designed its courses to provide all students with the requisite breadth and depth to master the tools of Economics. The faculty consists of active researchers trained at some of the best research universities in the world who bring the most updated knowledge pool and skill set into the classroom.
The training imparted is comparable to internationally acclaimed programs, and students are encouraged to be creative, analytical, and logical thinkers. This way of thinking enables them to offer innovative solutions to the problems they face in their surroundings. Additionally, all courses offered are equally challenging and spread across various disciplines (such as Computer Science, English, Mathematics, and Sociology), providing students with an in-depth interdisciplinary perspective.
The department's undergraduate programs are, a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc. Research) degree in Economics and a B.Sc. (Research) degree in Economics and Finance. The latter is offered in collaboration with the Department of Finance Accounting and Control (School of Management & Entrepreneurship). We offer a minor in economics for those pursuing other degrees but are keen on knowing how the economy functions.
The Department of Economics also offers a Master of Science (M.Sc.) and a doctoral degree (Ph.D.) in economics. Both graduate degrees are designed to expose students to cutting-edge research in economics and equip them with the tools necessary to conduct research in modern economics. The department has been broadly successful in placing its graduates within and outside India, in academia or otherwise.
