The Centre for Economics, Mathematics & Data Analytics, in partnership with the Department of Economics (School of Humanities & Social Sciences) and School of Management & Entrepreneurship has taken the lead to jointly offer the first ever inter-disciplinary program involving multiple schools at Shiv Nadar University.
The curriculum of the analytically, and quantitatively focused undergraduate program in Economics and Finance is designed to provide the students with a broad and deep understanding of forces that influence markets and institutions in general, and financial markets and financial institutions in particular.
The curriculum balances rigorous Economic and Finance theory with an exhaustive quantitative focus that will enable the students to translate theory to practice. In order to develop the necessary analytical and quantitative skills, students will take courses in mandatory courses in Mathematics and Statistics and a course in computing for the purpose of practical applicability.
There are also courses in Academic Writing with the aim of developing effective written communication and a research seminar that will give the students first-hand research experience which are offered. The programme will culminate in a semester-long internship in the final semester, or a research thesis (subject to mutual agreement between the student and a faculty advisor).
This program will provide students with a platform to pursue, according to their own interest, a wide range of career paths including financial services, analytics, banks, consulting, policy institutes, regulatory bodies, think tanks, and higher education, amongst others.
