What Our Students Say About Our Faculty  

"The Course on Macroeconomics Concepts and Issues in November-December 2020 was nicely structured. Dr Nageswaran took great efforts to explain the various concepts in great detail and answer all the queries - many of them very basic as compared to his knowledge and expertise. It was a thoroughly enriching experience. Thank you team Meghnad Desai Academy of Economics"

"The macroeconomics concepts course was really helpful. At some times is did feel a little too basic but overall it was a very good learning experience.Dr Nageswaran gave a lot of sources for economic data which was really helpful. Now at least I know where to look for the data and how to make a little more sense of it. I have also registered for his upcoming course too"
