Ever wondered why MBAs were paid so high or that how the $ commanded such a premium. It's time you were exposed to the dynamics of demand and supply. This is just the begining of a journey to understand the rational drivers of all economic activities. Accompanying you on this journey will be arguably the best faculty in the entire nation. Acquire the differentiator to pre-empt competition and demolish all existing monopolies.

Term VI
This course is designed as a take-off from ECONOMICS II (Macroeconomics) and the optional course on ECONOMICS OF DEVELOPMENT. Both these courses emphasize policy issues at the aggregate macro level, the first on business environment and the latter on developmental strategies.

The purpose of this course is to acquaint students with the current global market trends, issues of global governance such as managing the environment, and emerging debates about new technologies and corporate ethics, and major trends in macroeconomic changes. The expectation is to add value in the making of students' worldviews on economy and society.

The class will be divided into groups of 4 students. Each student group will be assigned a topic on which they will make a class presentation of about 30 minutes. Each class session will begin with some opening remarks by the instructor for not more than 30 minutes. This will be followed by the students' presentation. Finally, the last half an hour or so, will be used for discussion and summing up. The essence of the students' presentation must lie in going beyond the readings contained in the handout.

Pedagogic design may necessitate in putting an upper bound of 80 on the class size. In the event of excess demand, priority will be given to students who have taken Economics of Development in Term IV, and to students registering for credit. If these criteria do not suffice, then CGPA (latest available) will be used to screen. Pedagogic design will also necessitate reasonably regular attendance in the class
