From HOD’s desk

Greetings from the Department of Economics, Saintgits College of Applied Sciences. We offer an undergraduate degree programme in Corporate Economics which is affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam from 2014. I am happy to report that the present course is a judicious mix of Economics, Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Application, Accountancy and Principles of Management. We are the only college in the State of Kerala to offer such an innovative course. The ultimate aim of the present course is to develop professional economists for a variety of careers in teaching, government, industry and international institutions. 

Most of the students who went out of the college after the course are now pursuing their P.G. programme in reputed national and global institutions. Special mention deserves the names of Mr. Praise Babu who is studying the MD program in Baruch Public College, New York City, Amrutha Suresh in IBS Bangalore, Riya Susan George for M.Sc. Agri Business in Gokhale Institute of Politics and Economics, Mathew Thomas P for International Business Management and Logistics in St. Clare College, Canada.
