MA (Financial Economics) Program

Program Structure

The program will span across four semesters covering 2 years. The program is comprised of 20 courses, of which 14 are core courses, 4 are electives, an industry internship project and one Thesis. Two areas of specialization, i.e., "Finance" and "Banking" are offered. The students are also allowed to opt for a dual specialization. There is also an emphasis on independent research. Students are required to do term papers in most of the courses and each student undertakes a significant research project (Thesis) during the third and fourth semester. Students are required to take up a summer internship project at the end of the first year, which helps them to get an orientation in applied economics.
