What Does Agility 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 Agility as one of our pillars.
To be agile is to be able to move quickly and easily. How does being agile become a USP for an educational institution?
MDAE is an autonomous institute of the highest caliber. This means that we have the freedom to create our own curriculum and not be bound by the regulations of the university. This freedom allows us to constantly change the curriculum to meet the needs of the corporate world. The Board at MDAE, which comprises of the Chief Economist at Aditya Birla Group, Research Director at IDFC Institute and Deputy Director at IMF, MD at J.P. Morgan and Partner at Aon Hewitt, helps develop the curriculum. These are professionals in the corporate world, the very people that know what skills and knowledge are required.
2. A wide variety of students
Our PG Diploma in Economics with a specialisation in Economics, Data Analytics and Public Policy, caters to students from all kinds of backgrounds. We have had students studying here who come from marketing, engineering, statistics, mathematics, economics or they are chartered accountants (CA), and chartered financial analysts (CFA).
To Meghnad Desai Academy of Economics, being agile means being nimble and adaptive.
