Databases Subscribed
The institution subscribes to several databases for use by faculty and students. The datasets are managed by Database Management Group (MSE-DBMG) and Systems Staff for up-to-date information and effective use.

MSE-DBMG is an in-house attempt to provide online secondary data support to the students, researchers and faculties. It is our belief that it would turn out as a unique platform for the in-house users to share their individual information with the MSE community. Keeping in mind the diverse nature of issues in economic research, attempt has been made to cover almost all the issues/sectors. The information provided through the common platform, goes through close scrutiny of the respective committee (for its ingenuity, source specification and legality issues attached with the sharing) before it is uploaded in the common server. Initially it has started with the in-house availability of secondary data, however we are in the process to procure and disseminate more need based data.
