Delhi School of Economics

Most DU colleges dont have an MA degree of their own, actually no college has one. So even if we enrol in these colleges, all the lectures will be in the DSE. These are the colleges under DU. DSE is given top priority by students and the remaining can get themselves enrolled in other colleges.

www.econdse.org
Admission Rules and Procedures (for admission to M.A Economics, 2006-2007)
Students seeking admission to M.A Economics at the University of Delhi are required to first register themselves with the Department of Economics at the Delhi School of Economics, for appearing in the Entrance Examination. After being selected for the M.A. Economics Course, students may enroll themselves either in the Department of Economics at the Delhi School of Economics or in any of the colleges of the University of Delhi listed below:
Deshbandhu College
Hindu College
Indraprastha College*
Janaki Devi Mahavidyalaya*
Kirori Mal College
Lady Shri Ram College*
Miranda House*
Ramjas College
Shri Ram College of Commerce
St. Stephen’s College
Zakir Hussain College
Colleges marked * are for women students only.
Note that all lectures are delivered in the Department of Economics, Delhi School of Economics.

This can be read from the DSE hand book. So it does not matter which college you are admitted in.

i had seen tht...but i wnna knw hw gd their placements r after u complete ur masters...n u wont get the info frm their sites...

pj said...

n wt dyu mean it doesnt mean which cllg i get into? wud all the econ ppl in DU b considered for the dse placement prog?

pj said...

mean* = matter

alex said...

Well, I dont know about that because i plan to stay in the academia and do further studies in economics.
Which undergrad course did you do and from where, pj?

pj said...

i guess all those who purely enjoy the subject wud like to stick on to the academia, all the same i wud like to work a while r8 after my MA n then within 2-3 yrs get bck to research...put the theories in action n bla bla...all thts insignificant considerin i still hv nt got in newhere....neways did my ba econs...frm st.teresas

alex said...

Hmm...PJ, so where all did you try and how did the entrance tests go? How did your undergrad go?

pj said...

undergrad was fine...n the results will come as soon as the univ. gets into "the mood" to publish it..i wrote ig's test ...nt tht fab...everyone seems to hv answered everytin in math, i just answered round 25-28/50, n probably 20 r r8. verbal was fine , answered 85 properly n 15 guesses, overall i dont suppose the score wud b gd enuff...JNU sucked too...i thot the 1st paper ws bad...n then on the nxt day came the world econ. paper...ha ha ha...3 hrs???? hw on earth am i gnna spend 3hrs inside the examination hall....

alex said...

Well pj if thats the case, i feel you must do more reading if you are taking up the DSE/DU entrance test because it will be more analytical and mathematical.
So do you have any back up plans, because i did not have any?
All the best!

pj said...

yh yh i knw dse is tougher...n yes i do hv an excellent back up plan...i can waste one yr lost in the depths of econs

alex said...

I feel its better than going to a B school!

pj said...

ummm...he he...actually i m8 just end up doin tht if i dont make it for econs this yr...i hv to write the comin CAT n if i make it, my parents wudnt b too keen on takin the risk of my stickin around here ne longer..

pj said...

hi alex, i really need some help...i hv given a few questions n their answers below n i wud really appreciate it if u cud tell me hw one gets to these answers, step by step, cos i hv no clue...my mail address is pj_251@yahoo.co.in.....

Consider a competitive exchange economy with 2 agents( 1 & 2) & 2 goods (X & Y) . Agent 1’s endowment is(100,100) & agent 2’s endowment is( 50,0). An allocation for agent i. is denoted (xi, yi) ,where xi is his allocation of X & yi is his allocation of Y. Agent 1’s objective is to choose (x1,y1) to maximize his utility min{x1,y1}. Agent 2’s objective is to choose (x2,y2) to maximize his utility x2+y2.
Answer the following questions on the basis of the above information:
1) an example of competitive equilibrium allocation for this economy is
a) (x1,y1) = (100,50) & (x2,y2) = (50,50)
b) (x1,y1) = (125,100) & (x2,y2) = (25,0)
c) (x1,y1) = (50,50) & (x2,y2) = (100,50)
d) (x1,y1) = (100,100) & (x2,y2) = (50,0)
ans: d.

2) an example of pareto efficient allocation for this economy is
a) (x1,y1)= (50,50) & (x2,y2) = (100,50)
b) (x1,y1) = (125,100) & (x2,y2) = (25,0)
c) (x1,y1) = (125,75) & (x2,y2) = (25,25)
d) (x1,y1) = (50,100) & (x2,y2) = (100,0)
ans: (a)

3) an example of a pair of competitive equilibrium prices( p1, p2) for this economy is
a) (1,0)
b) (0,1)
c) ( 1/3,2/3)
d) (2/3,1/3)
ans: ( 0,1)

4) suppose the govt. imposes a lumpsum tax of rs 50 on agent 1 and transfers the tax receipts as a lump sum subsidy of rs 50 to agent 2. After this wealth transfer, an example of a competitive equilibrium for this economy is: prices = (1/2,1/2) & allocation:
a) (x1,y1) = (100,100) & (x2,y2) = (50,0)
b) (x1,y1) = (50,50) & (x2,y2) = (100,50)
c) (x1,y1) = (0,100) & (x2,y2) = (150,0)
d) (x1,y1) = (100,0) & (x2,y2) = (50,100)
ans: (a)
pls try to reply asap.

hey guys i ve just compltd 1st year eco hons in LSR.just wunderin if any coaching is requird for dse n jnu entrance exams?

alex said...

Well,
As far as i know LSR comes under DU right? So if its under DU you dont need that much of help. Keep working on what they give you nad look up the relevant references. Or probably you can contact those in JNU. Where did you do your schooling from?

EconDSEGrad2002 said...

There is only one MA in Economics offered by DU and that is at the Delhi School of Economics' dept of economics. All students in DU who are pursuing an MA in Economics recieve instruction and take exams at the dept of economics in the DSE. The placement program is for all 150 students admitted to the MA Economics in DU (DSE). The DSE handles all the academic requirements of MA Economics students in DU.

The only (weird) administrative detail is that the first 50 in DSE (DU MA Econ) entrance exam (+ 25 reservation seats) are 'admitted' to DSE, i.e., pay the fee in the DSE dept of econ office and the remaining 75 get admitted to various colleges in DU that 'support' the MA Econ program. These remaning 75 get exactly the same benefits as the top 75 in every respect. Some of the bottom 75 also 'migrate' to the DSE dept of econ in the 2nd year as some of the top 75 candidates fail out in the 1st year. This breakup is a relic of old times when the bottom 75 recieved tutorials in the respective colleges they were admitted in and the top 75 in the dept of econ at the DSE. This was changed mid-nineties and now all classes and tutorials for all 150 students are held in the dept of econ at the DSE.

There are other programs like MA in Business Economics and MHROD and MIB(Faculty of Commerce) that are offered by faculties in DU that are separate from the DSE.

alex said...

Thank you EconDSEGrad2002. This was a real piece of information for me. How would you rate the chances for a non-DU candidate to clear the entrance?

Hey ! I'm doing Eco hons from DU. I'm currently in my second year.........when should I start hardcore prep for the D School entrance Exam ? I'm not giving CAT or anything.......Should one have fabulous marks in grad. to get in there ? I got 80 % last year...but things have changed !

alex said...

Anon,

Any mark above 50% is fine. What one needs is a thorough understanding of the concepts. If you are thorough with the concepts, and keep working out problems, the test wont be tough.

The earlier you start prep, the better it will be.
