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
