Projects / Case Studies

Procuring Washing Machines

A company sells 1000 washing machines per year, on an average. Getting them all at once will reduce the per order cost and headaches, but then there is a warehousing cost. What is the ideal quantity to order based on other parameters? What are these other parameters?

Extrapolating Voter Data

There is going to be a closely contested election at the state level. A simple sample of 500 people polled gives the candidate 52% of the votes. Is that enough to sit back and relax? What could be the sample size to give the candidate the confidence needed to take further action?

Proving Sixth Sense

A person claims that she has ESP. Can we devise a test to check the claim. If probability dictates that she will be right 25% of the time, and she is right 27% of the time when asked to perform the experiment 1000 times, is that enough proof to validate her claim? What about 28%? What is that magic number when we can accept her claim? And even if we do, can we still be wrong? What is that margin of error?

Testimonials from Corporates

Santanu Sengupta

Head – Treasury Economics and Strategy, RIL

We have had a very good experience with a student from MDAE who has been working with us over the past three years. Practical exposure is what differentiates MDAE students, and we observed that she was able to close the gap between academia, and real-life faster than fresh graduates from other renowned institutes. MDAE is doing a stellar job in preparing candidates for the job market.

Mr DK Joshi

Chief Economist Crisil Ltd

With sound training in economic concepts, practical experience and exposure to real-world issues. MDAE students appeared well prepared for the job market.

Dr. Reuben Abraham

CEO & Senior fellow at IDFC Institute

We had an excellent experience working with a student from the MDAE. Unlike most, he had an extraordinary curiosity and a willingness to learn and place textbook economics in their historical and political context, which itself involved digging into 500 years of political history. Based on this experience of working with him, we have made him an offer to join us full-time once he graduates from MDAE
