On behalf of Madras School of Economics (MSE), I greet all of you who are watching this website. MSE was set up more than two decades ago with the objective of creating in Chennai a centre dedicated to research and higher education in Economics. The Post Graduate M.Sc. programme has grown in size and we today offer five specialities and have an intake of around 150 students each year. The programmes are aimed at equipping the students with the latest developments in the discipline along with the necessary skills in statistics and analytics. Research is no less important. The research activity of the faculty covers every aspect of the discipline of economics. Particular mention must be made of the work in the area of environment which has led to the establishment of Centre of Excellence in Environmental Economics. The physical infrastructure including buildings and computer facilities are expanding. The placement record of the graduating students has been impressive. On the whole, we have lived up to the original vision with which the Institution was set up. It will be our endeavour to maintain and improve upon the high quality of the Institution.
