Founded in 1973, the Department of Business Economics pioneered the Masters Program in Business Economics, MBE, patterned on a similar program conducted by Harvard Business School. Since then, the Department has established itself as one of India’s leading centers of excellence in business education and research. The Department also administers the Bachelors, M.Phil and Ph.D. programs in this discipline and has also initiated the same programs for many other universities.
The Department has consistently endeavored to provide students with strong conceptual and analytical skills in order to inculcate proficient management abilities in them. The academic pedagogy has been designed to create a strong orientation towards seamless applicability of economics and related econometric tools at various functions of an enterprise and areas of social policy making. Moreover, the curriculum has been modified over the years in conformity with the feedback received from the industry and the alumni.
The recognition and reputation of the department gets reflected in the quality of recruiters visiting the campus over the years. The MBE products have been trusted by the industry for critical decision making roles especially those involving analytics.
Boasting of an illustrious alumni body of over 1000 people who have made a mark in various capacities in the corporate world and academics, Master of Business Economics has grown in stature and has acquired a reputation of being a leader in its own field. The perfect blend of faculty, academicians and researchers with their vast pool of managerial expertise and experience distinguishes the department from others and puts it in a preferred position.
MBE today attracts people who have the potential and drive to lead, own, create and transform business enterprises. We have an unmatched ability to integrate the functional areas of business and to fasten them formally to the global, high tech marketplace, where those possessing a judicious mix of expertise and judgment, coupled with logical and analytical decision making skills manage the world's resources.
