Ans. According to the reviews online, several students have preferred Hansraj over Hindu college. They also mentioned some reasons to support the fact. Better Faculty -  Hansraj boasts DSE, Oxford, Nottingham, former IAS as professors.  Some of the best faculty for Economics in DU are professors at Hansraj.  More opportunities -  Hansraj College is bigger than Hindu not only in terms of the number of students but also in courses, which counts for greater exposure and more societies. Higher Studies -  Hans Raj has a record for a maximum number of students to join DSE MA Economics every year.  MA aspirants also find their way to other top schools such as IGIDR, Oxford, LSE, IIMs, etc. Hansraj Economics Council is the leadership body of Hans Raj Economics Society.

Ques. How is economics honours course from Aryabhatta College?

● Top Answer By Admin on 28 Oct 21

Ans. Some of my friends studied Economics honors at Aryabhatta College. According to them, economics honors itself is a comparatively tougher subject, graduating with it is an achievement itself. You get to know about how markets work and relate almost anything and any topic or current issue to the prevailing conditions of an economy.  It also demands good skills in mathematics and quantitative ability that will benefit you in the long term.  This course will push you to your limit. You will have to submit numerous projects based on case studies and current market scenarios. Aryabhatta College is the youngest college of DU. It originated from an evening college converted to a morning one.  The only thing that is a bit concerning is its placement cell, it is very new. Thus, not having established contacts with the reputed organizations and companies might come as a disadvantage. Few companies that visit the campus are average.Read more

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 18 Oct 21

Ans. Most DU institutions are on a similar footing. But Ramjas is regarded to be superior in most areas. Apart from similar academics to KMC, Ramjas College has one of the best cultural events. Its focus is on the holistic development of students. With time, the value of these colleges is diminishing as cut-offs are getting competitive, and the quality of students is spreading more evenly. However, Ramjas is the best if you want to challenge yourself.Read more

Ques. How is Shyam Lal College of Delhi University for doing a BA in economics honours?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 30 Sept 21

Ans. Shyam Lal College, Delhi is a good institute but not exceptional, if its prospects are compared with various other colleges. However, the economics department alone can be a good choice if you are opting for Shyam Lal College. Now, the faculties are good but it is essential that you study as per your pace and competence, without depending upon the professors. Shyam Lal College can be a good choice only if you are devoid of any other options to go for. There are other aspects to consider when choosing a college, the infrastructure, crowd, internship programs, fest, societies, canteen, campus, location are to name a few among many others. The infrastructure is quite good. The internship programs, alongside the fests, are not quite exceptional. In a way, the societies, in contrast, are ranging higher from time to time. Moreover, the canteen of the college is somewhat above average, while the location is quite disadvantageous. However, the institute is deemed pretty much better than others since it is under the University of Delhi.  Overall Shyam Lal College, Delhi is a decent option for pursuing your Economics Hons. Now whether you should go for it or not depends on what other options you have. Read more
