Symbiosis School of Economics (SSE) is a dynamic institution, with a demonstrable record of success, offering both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Economics. The curriculum is designed and upgraded periodically to enhance the employability of our graduates in sectors such as public and private enterprises, banking and financial services, government, consulting, academia and NGOs. This very niche Institute seeks to develop intellectual discipline, critical and analytical assessment, which will result in rational thinking, along with an understanding of the need for constrained optimization, and a strong urge to strive towards achieving equilibrium. The SSE tries to achieve these goals in an educational environment committed to excellence and academic freedom. The environment here is disciplined and demanding, at the same time giving plenty of scope for creativity, originality and student initiatives. Unique aspects of the institute are the centers it runs for students. The Centre for Academic Writing offers numerous facilities to students for academic writing whereas the Centre for Quantitative Learning and Applications supports researchers at advanced level.

B.Sc. (Economics) Honours is a full time three­year graduation programme, which also offers a wide array of modules not emphasized in traditional economics graduation programs. Accounts and Finance, Environmental Economics, International Relations, Public Policy and Administration, Research Methodology, Business Law etc. are some such subjects. This helps students develop interdisciplinary skills in terms of critical thinking, logical analysis and deep understanding of crucial economic issues. We aim at creating a class of graduates in Economics who would be equipped not only with the strong foundation of economic theory but also with skills required to tackle and analyse the real world business and economic issues.

Placement: The Placement Cell at Symbiosis School of Economics works in close coordination with its faculty advisor and provides a platform for students seeking recruitment to interact with possible recruiters on the campus. The SSE has consciously developed, nurtured and forged long-lasting collaborations and relationships with a number of research institutes, corporate firms and NGOs and development agencies. These organizations have offered internships and final placements to our students. It is a conscious effort on the part of SSE to expand the network of association, so as to reflect synergies between the academic training and research/industry needs.

Pedagogy (Method of Instruction) : At SSE we have adopted a multi­pedagogical approach .It incorporates lectures, case studies, library assignments, project work, industrial visits, research projects, presentations, conferences and talks given by guest lecturers, and other innovative instruction methodologies. In short, we concentrate on problem based and experiential learning through live projects and fieldwork which are supported by e­learning tools, software and hands­on research.

Profile of Past Students: The SSE students have a pan­India presence with international students coming from more than 10 nations across the globe. d.

Career prospects: Students graduating from SSE can look forward to careers in civil services, government funded and private think tanks and institutions, academic institutions, public and private organizations involved with developmental activities, analytics, market research, business intelligence and credit rating as well as financial and economic research.
