Testimonials

"It was a great course on Economics of Pandemics by Dr. Abhinay Muthoo. The course started charting out the channels through which any pandemic could/would impact the economy and in the next three days the same was also explained with behavioural background. In a strategic environment, how people might make decisions which may be away from social optimal and how the public policy plays a role in nudging people (as a country) back to a social optimality was explained well

Recently completed a 10-hour online course on “India-China Ties: Strategic, Defence and Diplomatic” conducted by Meghnad Desai Academy of Economics (MDAE) and Gateway House: Indian Council on Global Relations. The various topics covered in the three-day course ranged from the Indo-Pacific, multilateralism, Chinese and India influence in regional and global organizations, border disputes, QUAD and Tibet’s role in Chinese infrastructure.

Overall, it was a great learning experience to know more about the different dimensions of the relationship between the two countries and the course will help analyse the current events in a much clearer manner.

I had one of the most fruitful weekends attending a short certificate program on "Getting started with research" hosted by Meghnad Desai Academy of Economics (MDAE) and Prayogshala (मंक प्रयोगशाला).

The session was led by Anirudh Tagat and Hansika Kapoor, PhD. This was a very good refresher on the research methods and foundations and I am quite charged up to keep progressing into the world of research in my work and otherwise.Overall, such a fulfilling weekend.
