“As an economics student in the 12th grade, I decided I wanted to pursue economics as a major due to the intriguing analytical framework the subject offers. Vishwakarma University had come under my radar because of my parents.  I cannot comment about my experience without the grain of salt that was restrictions on the way classes could be run in the last year. However, despite this, the university, especially its faculty, has made a notable attempt to salvage the learning experience wherever possible. The consistency and sufficiency of the contact hours provided by the university was to a good standard when looking at each respective course in the program.

-Divesh Aswani

 

“I decided to choose BSC Economics as I wanted to understand the subject in great detail. I surfed on the internet for better career prospects in economics and having a B.Sc. degree in economics will be more appropriate for me than a BA as I want to become an investment banker. My experience with VU till now is really good. Our professors -Ankita madam, Amol sir are really very supportive and they really want us to thrive in our careers. This was my overall experience with VU till now. Vishwakarma is a good example of an ideal place for students who want to pursue excellence in their desired stream. To add a feather to the cap, it focuses on rigorous training to develop the employability of every student and also offers excellent employment opportunities.
