The Centre at Economics from Jawaharlal Nehru University espouses the philosophy that Economics looks at a problem in a variety of ways. This diversity of the subject is reflected in its programmes that expose students to the existing schools of thought and thereby gives them a broad training.


Students in the Economics programme from Jawaharlal Nehru University have to complete 16 courses, each carrying 4 credits. Of these, 8 are compulsory and 8 are optional. In the first 2 semesters there is no choice and the student is expected to complete 8 compulsory courses (4 in each semester). The student takes 4 optional courses in each of the remaining two semesters in the second year.

Key Features 

  • In most universities where Economics is taught, there is a divide between economic theory and applied work. CESP does not believe in this and, therefore, links economic theory with historical experience and empirical observation. 
  • Teaching economic theory is not viewed merely as an exposition of received and established truths or as an intellectual exercise in the skills of logical deduction and inference. 

Programme Structure

Courses include:
  • Microeconomic Theory
  • Trade, Finance and Development
  • Political Economy of Development
  • Problems of Accumulation
  • Mathematical Methods in Economics
  • Indian Economic Problems
