“The biggest take away from SSE for me is “Thinking beyond Books”. Before coming to SSE I was very much accustomed to a world where exams were all about studying books and pouring it out on the exam paper. However, those theories actually became clear when our faculty at SSE connected those theories to the real world. The internal components like writing Assignments & Research Papers enhanced our analytical thinking and thus helped us to gain a lot of knowledge which we could not gain by just reading books. The best part was writing a dissertation on a research question of our own choice. It actually made us “think” which no written exam can do!
SSE has given me innumerable opportunities for conducting research works, not just for the purpose of examination, but also for the sake of augmenting knowledge. The college and the faculty have been the most supportive when it came to permitting us for conducting primary surveys. Our Director, Dr. Jyoti Chandiramani and the other faculties have always welcomed new ideas and motivated us to go ahead with them. A few instances would be my research works on the Transgender Community and the Slum Rehabilitation Scheme in Pune. The internship opportunity has also been a great learning experience for me.
“Discipline, Hard-work and Perseverance is the only way to success. SSE has taught me to fight for everything (in the good sense). Nothing was served on the plate. I had to work hard for everything. Also, the fond memories would be a huge takeaway from SSE.
SSE made me more efficient. It brought the best out of me. The overall learning at this institute has shaped me as a person. It was not just monotonous learning. The learning was good enough to take me ahead in my life.
Learning was a continuous process throughout these two years. Ranging from writing research papers, presentations to surveys on ground level, learning was always a priority. Amongst all this, the biggest learning has been that of being focused and working hard for what you desire to achieve out of this course, faculty and college and not merely concentrating on fetching marks. At SSE, I have explored opportunities to the fullest, tried hands on things those were untouched, failed again & again and learnt to get up. I have learnt to keep trying, accepting failure and trying doing new things that makes a difference in society.
I can positively say that Symbiosis School of Economics has laid an excellent foundation for my future. The Bsc Economics course at SSE is an extremely well structured course and provides in-depth learning of Economics and Mathematics. The course is well supported my dedicated teachers who are always available for guidance. The college also provides wonderful opportunities of Exchange Programs which provide excellent opportunity to interact with International Students.
