Rigor in Thought, in Action and in Outcomes

Rigor in Thought, in Action and in Outcomes

What Does Rigor mean to us? If you read our post on the four pillars of Meghnad Desai Academy of Economics, you already know what we stand for (if you haven’t, you can read it here). Let’s talk about what we mean by Rigour as one of our pillars. Rigor means that our students are challenged to think, perform, and grow to a level that they were not at previously. Our programs are rigorous because: 1. Curriculum Firstly, what other colleges and universities teach in 2 years, we teach in one year. Secondly, our professors are so invested in the students, they are constantly pushing them so they can reach their potential. 2. Quantitative training The one-year post graduate certificate in Economics with a specialisation in Data Analytics, Public Policy and Finance, provides a rigorous quantitative training. As a student, you learn Python, R Programming, Advanced Statistics and Mathematics. We understand the importance of quantitative training in today’s world and so encourage our students to have these skills. 3. Weekly Readings Every week, our professors send across an article to the students. These articles are about current affairs and related to the concepts they are learning. These articles are then discussed in class. Rigor in thought, in action and in outcomes is what Meghnad Desai Academy of Economics focuses...
INTEGRITY is what we say is what we do

INTEGRITY is what we say is what we do

What Does Integrity mean to us? If you read our post on the four pillars of Meghnad Desai Academy of Economics, you already know what we stand for (if you haven’t, you can read it here). Let’s talk about what we mean by Integrity as one of our pillars. Integrity is a vital part of any institution because students and parents put their trust in them. The students rely on institutions to guide them and give them a bright future. If MDAE does not do as we said we would, we are letting our stakeholders down. We are tainting our reputation, which is why integrity is necessary. How do we imbibe integrity? 1. Feedback of courses from every student After every module has been completed, we send across an elaborate and thorough feedback form to ensure the students are getting the most out of the course. MDAE values student feedback and always incorporate it in the following year. 2. Placements We take pride in our placements. During admissions season, our USP is that we provide placements of an average of 7 Lacs and we look at each individual’s preference and try to find a role best suited them. We ensure only the best companies hire our students. We have a 95% placement record, with students being placed in companies like J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Deloitte, Reliance Industries, HSBC, RBS, Fractal Analytics, Decimal Point Analytics, ID Insight, Gateway House and many more. Integrity to us means what we say is what we...
Get Access to people, opportunities and excellence

Get Access to people, opportunities and excellence

WHAT DOES ACCESS MEAN TO US? If you read our post on the four pillars of Meghnad Desai Academy of Economics, you already know what we stand for (if you haven’t, you can read it here). Here we dive deeper into our ACCESS pillar. What is Access to us? Why is Access important to our institution? A student cannot simply learn by reading off a textbook. True learning happens when students have access and when students have exposure. 1. Placements Placement season is always a busy affair at Meghnad Desai Academy. From day one, our Placement Committee is dedicated to the students. Each individual student is prioritised through the entire process, from CV building to interview prep to finding the right role for each individual student. 2. Internships For a month, students are required to do an internship. This internship helps them apply the concepts they have learned in the course. 3. Speaker Series The Speaker Series serves as an out-of-the-classroom venue for students to encounter exciting intellectual developments in the disciplines of economics and finance. A prominent academic or practitioner delivers a talk on a topic drawn either from their research or their work, and a discussion follows with members of the audience. 4. Mentorship Program As part of the one – year mentorship program, each student is paired up with a professional who is an expert in their field. Access to people, to opportunities and to excellence is what Meghnad Desai Academy of Economics stands...
