History of International Economics Convention
The International Economics Convention is an odyssey which is joined by hundreds of students and faculty from national and international universities and colleges. It is a novel initiative of H(S)NC Board to instill and enhance research skills at tertiary level. It aims to be one of the leading international conferences for presenting exquisite and fundamental advances in the fields of Social Science and Economics. It nurtures and strengthens analytical, presentation and leadership skills among students. In the early nineteen nineties when the globalization had become the buzz word in the Indian economy the deliberations between the then Governor of RBI Mr. I. G. Patel, Mr. Ram Tarneja and then M.D. of the Bennett & Coleman Group and Principal Dr. Indu Shahani paved the way for the International Economics Convention. The first IEC was hosted by H.R. College in 1993 under the leadership of Dr. Indu Shahani that had created the benchmark for all the IECs to follow. This year Smt. MMK College hosts, deliberates and discusses on the theme “Human Capital Development through Higher Education: Lessons for India” Today in its 27th year, it has its own success story to tell.
