One of the greatest challenges of the Indian education system is to match its academic curriculum with industry requirements, In terms of knowledge, proficiency, rigor, and skillset. On one hand, there is a need to fill the gap between curriculum at bachelor and master degree levels. On the other, the void that even after master degree a student does not feel well-equipped to take up real challenges head-on. This is because the practical approaches and market applications are grossly missing in the curriculum, resulting in the demand-supply gap in the job market and weaker career opportunities for the youth. The field of Economics is as much an art as well as science, it deals with people, processes, and pragmatism; it also responds to the changing needs that the times offer. Time demands a change in attitudes, temperaments, perceptions, and the way we conduct our learning and teaching of economies. To contribute favourably to the national and international development needs, and enormous structural changes happening around, endeavour needs to be made to meet and match the academic and industry demands. Thus, the course in the MASTER OF ARTS (M.A.) in Economics has been designed to equip students with the knowledge of economic theory and its application, present context. Apart from equipping students with the knowledge of economics, it provides techniques of data analysis and logical thinking.
It is a semester-based post-graduation program with a total of four semesters spanning two years. Economics is a blend of ‘core economic theory' and 'econometrics', powered by effective ‘analytical technique to be used in specific settings.

The system of pedagogy entails tools like - econometrics, statistics, data analysis, simulations, case studies, historical analogy, vernacular aids, field study, and community-based research. The program takes several software packages and data sources to make education apt and efficient.
