In the past 17 years of its existence, VIPS has established its firm presence. If you seek complete knowledge then VIPS sure is the most preferred college. The students at VIPS excel in every sphere, bringing in University Gold medals year after year. VIPS has always been a platform for promoting professional education and as it takes a new stride with Vivekananda School of Economics (VSE), I am proud to be associated with VSE as its Dean. Economics has a very wide scope of jobs – from planning commission, finance commission, Reserve Bank of India to the Indian Economic Service. Today economics is more useful than any other branch of knowledge because it makes human welfare its direct and primary concern. Durbin says “Economics is the intellectual religion of the days.” The journey that you have undertaken is tough and arduous no doubt, but if you give in your 100% you surely would succeed. You are not alone, you have our learned faculty who are there to guide you, lead you, motivate you and teach you with dedication and passion and instill in you the scientific urge to reason and explore. It is a monumental task to train young brains and make them potential economists of future but I assure you VIPS has always delivered its promise. I am not saying these 3 years would be a smooth ride for all of you; it could be a roller coaster ride – but I can definitely assure you that it is worth taking this ride. All the Best!
