Delhi University’s Shri Ram College of Commerce takes pride to send professors to Mumbai to teach the recent recruits of Reserve Bank of India.
This is a five day program where two to three teachers are being sent to train and teach the April recruits of RBI. They will be taught about the application of fundamental concepts of micro economics. The scope of the program will include demand and supply side working of the economy, competition, etc.
Dr. Simrit Kaur, the Principal of SRCC, said,“Since people who are not necessarily economists join the RBI, we were invited for this consultancy programme with them. We have been told to send teachers who are rich in applying these basic theories, which is a requirement for their operations. This will hopefully take the form of a series of training programmes, which will depend on feedback we receive. It is a big honour as an undergraduate college to be invited by RBI for such a programme.”
RBI recruits come from diversified academic backgrounds such as MBA, PGDBA, PGPM, PGDM, and postgraduate degrees in economics and commerce.
This is the first time that the institute is working with any government agency in the process of training. A Memorandum is soon to be signed with The Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs.
