Mumbai-based Meghnad Desai Academy of Economics (MDAE) has announced the extension of its academic partnership with Pune’s Gokhale Institute of Politics & Economics (GIPE) for three years to offer courses that make students industry-ready, MDAE said in a statement.
MDAE and GIPE jointly offer several short-term certificate courses and two postgraduate (PG) diploma courses. MDAE is considered a pioneer in offering practical learning experiences and industry exposure.
Along with announcing their continued academic collaboration, the two institutions also announced that the collaborative PG diplomas will continue to be offered. Students can continue enrolling for the one-year full-time PG diploma course in Economics and PG diploma course in Data Science & Finance.
Students from both the institutes will continue to reap the benefits of the collaboration. They can continue to participate in the joint placement events that will be held at both MDAE and GIPE campuses. MDAE is noted for providing students with high-paying placement opportunities across industries.
Students can participate in research projects led by faculty from the two institutes. This gives the students a chance to gain knowledge from the faculty exchange agreement between MDAE and GIPE. MDAE students will be invited to interact with faculty and students of GIPE during events organised at the Pune campus.
Amlesh Kanekar, director of Academic Programmes, MDAE, said, “We are delighted that the collaboration between MDAE and the Gokhale Institute has been extended. Both institutions are determined to strengthen the collaboration further. Students and faculty of both institutions will benefit immensely from this. I believe the collaboration provides MDAE students with an excellent opportunity to benefit from their academic association with one of the oldest and most prestigious research and training institutes of economics in India.”
