Economics & Finance

    Program Objective

    Minor programs are being offered in certain areas as options for integrated first-degree students with the intent of encouraging them to add focus to their supplemental learning as well as recognising and certifying the knowledge obtained in an area that is outside of their major area. A minor would allow a Department (or multiple Departments) to offer a package of courses in an area/sub-area to students for whom this area/sub-area would not be part of their (major) program (e.g. a minor in Finance for students who are pursuing a B.Tech./B.Pharma etc.).

    The minor in Finance aims at providing the student with a grounding in the basic concepts of accounting and finance so as to complement their existing disciplinary knowledge, enrich their educational experience, enable them to make better financial decisions, and expand their career opportunities. It will also give students an opportunity to learn more about investments and quantitative applications in finance. In a unique initiative, the department has academic collaboration with various corporate organisation who train the student by floating in-campus course (recently, the department, in collaboration with Credit Suisse, have offered a course entitled “Financial Risk Analytics and Management”).  

    Program Structure

    The students have to apply for Minor in Finance at the end of second year. The students have to complete total of 5 courses get a certificate in Minor in Finance.
