The applied component ‘Elementary Quantitative Techniques’ is introduced at SYBA with a special purpose of improvement of TYBA performance of the students as well as their overall improvement in the academic and employment prospects. It covers up the lacuna of statistics papers in the first and the second year. This paper prepares the SYBA students for the TYBA papers like Elementary Mathematics and Statistics for Economics (VII) and Introduction to Econometrics (VIII) since most of the related syllabi of both these papers are covered at SYBA level. Thus, it forms a link to the TYBA. This paper is also essential for the students going for higher studies, post- graduation, competitive examinations in different fields etc. Thus, the Department of Economics is keen to encourage the students to take up this useful as well as scoring paper. Our Department of Economics offers a combination of very useful as well as scoring papers at TYBA. Optional papers like Elementary Mathematics and Statistics for Economics (VII) and Introduction to Econometrics (VIII) are combined with applied component paper Computer Applications for Economic Analysis (IX) so that the students get acquainted to the most important quantitative techniques that are being used in the recent times in Economics. These three papers form a unique combination which is rarely offered by any college. The applied component paper ‘Computer Applications for Economic Analysis’ (Paper-IX) is introduced for preparing our students for good career opportunities. Students get the knowledge of basics in computers as well as its uses for economic studies and research. Thus, from the point of view of higher studies, competitive examinations, the students are prepared at affordable college fees.

GUEST LECTURE BY DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMICS

The Department of Economics of L.S. Raheja College arranged for a Guest Lecture on the 9th of July, 2016 at 10:30 am in the Auditorium. We had the profound pleasure of hosting Prof. S.M. Sawant as the speaker for this event.

 The lecture that was on ‘Time Management and Self Discipline’ and was accompanied by a wonderfully informative PowerPoint presentation. The audience consisted of students representing all three years of both the Arts as well as Commerce branches of our senior college. The session started with Prof. Sawant giving a very well articulated speech on the importance of time management and self discipline in a student’s life, the hurdles that one faces while trying to achieve these goals and how to overcome these and become more efficient and competent individuals. His speech was peppered with humorous anecdotes and examples from our daily life which the students found very interesting and these helped them to open up very quickly with the result that the speech soon transformed into an interactive session between the students and Prof. Sawant.

The event concluded with a short question answer session between Prof. Sawant and the students.
