Guys I need ur help! I have an offer from CDS and GIPE financial economics. I'm more curious abt exploring more in economics rather than corporate placements. I don't know yet if I should be choosing academics or other oppertunities economics has to offer. Please suggest if I should be choosing CDS Applied Economics or GIPE Financial Economics. My instinct says CDS. Would appreciate your suggestions. Thanks.
@dan: since u said u are more interested in research i would suggest u 2 join CDS since taking up financial eco can seriously constrain the field of ur research; however if u do manage 2 get gen eco in Gokhale.. dont think twice...
Those who are getting confused what to choose from MSE OR GOKHALE
Placement wise MSE is way ahead. The average package in MSE general eco and financial eco is
Also MSE has direct tie ups with the coroporate world.IN 2012-13 the averaghe package was 6 lacs with highest offer of 12 lacs around. Financial eco highest pay was 10 lacs.http://www.mse.ac.in/placement/MSE%20Placement%20Guide%202013-14.pdf compaRING faculty mse is way ahead of gokhale.
Gokhale is good for research.The average placement of general eco is abt 20% with average package of about 4-5 lacs.Highest package in general eco was Faculty isnt muh good either Also the course structure at Mse is better.Financial eco average package is 5.5 lacs.GOKHALE IS GOOD FOR ACADEMICS IN FINANCIAL.
IF u want choose between MSE OR GOKHALE...for general eco choose MSE .and for financial eco both are equally good.
and for agricultural gokhale is better.
i hoped it helped.My personal suggestion choose MSE(CAREER POINT OF VIEW -GENERAL ECO...FOR FINANCIAL EITHER).thanks
Choose North, if you have option at hand. I have studied in south for 2 years now and I know what you lose by not living in mainland India. *not to sound discriminatory ! Placements are short-sighted dreams.
