Specializations

Specializations Offered

International Trade

The specialization in International Trade broadly explores the principles of economics related to the causes and effects of trade beyond geographical and political boundaries. This, in turn, explains the patterns and consequences of transactions and interactions between the inhabitants of different countries, including trade, aid, investment and migration and other factors as well. Parts of the specialization also involve investigating the consequences of trade activities on economies in perspectives of resources, preferences and institutions. This specialization module highlights the angles of politico-economic policy variables on world economies, as well, particularly in the post-globalized era. (Kindly refer to the Programme Structure which will give you a holistic view about the courses taught under the specialization)

Development Studies

Development Studies include the broad areas of economics that explore the causes, needs and processes of development in low-income countries. It also involves the study of the structural change phenomena caused by the advancements that these economies witness in the course of their growth process. The specialization focuses on theories and methods, both spatial and temporal, which help in forming policies at the domestic and international levels to achieve optimal social ends. The module also concentrates on certain aspects and issues of economic development across post-war periods, spanning right up to the liberalized and globalized new world economies. It is geared towards a multidisciplinary approach that encompasses social and political angles, other than pure economic concerns. (Kindly refer to the Programme Structure which will give you a holistic view about the courses taught under the specialization)
