The Delhi School of Economics is an institution where academic rigor in the disciplines of Economics, Geography, and Sociology is the cornerstone of its intellectual life. Students and teachers are engaged in the pursuit of academic knowledge through both conceptual categories and practical experience. The focus on social engagement of different kinds, through disciplinary and interdisciplinary frames, results in an informed and socially aware student body. This was envisioned by Professor V.K.R.V. Rao, Founder –Director of the Delhi School of Economics, who had a holistic view of education that surpassed mere academic excellence.
I am honored to welcome you to this august institution that is enriched by an eminent intellectual history and vibrant present!
- Prof. Meenakshi Thapan
