The economics society comprises the entire fraternity of teachers as well as students and aims at providing a wider learning experience through various activities. It is a forum for free and informal discussions on economic issues and also encourages students to make presentations on topics of their interest. This inculcates in them a spirit of learning and enhances interest in economics as a subject. We believe that out-of-class interaction are indispensable for developing the necessary intuitive flow for the subject and make the undergraduate programme a holistic experience .
The society organises talks and seminars by eminent scholars and professionalson crucial issuesto develop perspectives and broaden the horizon of the students.
The extracurricular activitiesare an integral part of our training in economics.The annual economic festival ‘Econotize’ is a most popular and coveted event in Delhi University and has attracted widespread participation from colleges and institutions in Delhi.The mock United Nations conference simulating the ambiance of international economic forums like the WTO, IMF etc bring together students to engage in extensive and well researched discussion on burning issues.These have received widespread applications and acclaim across the university and colleges. Besides, innovative economic events like ‘News hours’ and ‘Recruiters’ have become famous and are testimony to the creative imagination of students working to devise activities that enhance interest and awareness in economics.
We believe that the economics society is an essential part of the department which supplements the academic efforts and has successfully ignited the spark of learning in studentsand making it an enjoyable experience.
