I have same concern. In all possibilities I want to work after PG but at the same time I would love to study some interesting Economics
I am confused b/W JNU (SSS) , MSE (FE) or Ashoka ? I would love to hear some honest opinion
I understand your concern, its a tough choice. JNU (SSS) is a very good program with good faculty, nice course work, beautiful campus and established reputation. It may have some corporate placement issues but I think that more or less everyone finds work (academic or non academic).
Ashoka is a new program but it has excellent faculty, good course structure and they are offering something different and extremely exciting. I am very sure that they will soon earn the reputation of being among the top programs in the country.
So I would say it is a difficult decision as of today. I suggest you to think and then decide.
