Students and teachers strive hard to tout the spirit of Economics and Miranda House through the stimulation of intellectual discourse.
A lot was said and done this past year. Times are changing and so are our global and national economies. Recent times have proved to be more tiring than ever, and we must prepare for the possibility that rhetoric will become reality. What we firmly believe in right now, is that the youth can change the workings of the society and help build a better future.
Most economies are interconnected and events in the past few years have reaffirmed the interdependence we have created amongst our economies. Elections in a certain country or change in trade policies in another country not only affect the domestic country, but also its trade partners.
We, at Zenith, believe that to combat these immense widespread effects requires thinking out of the box, knowledge of everything that happens on a global level and using this knowledge to come up with brilliant solutions and theories of our own.
The 9th edition of Zenith, the annual Economics conclave of Miranda House aims at providing to you a platform wherein you showcase your abilities in the best way possible. On this note, we take great pleasure in inviting you to be a part of Zenith, one of the best Economics conclaves across the nation.
Awaiting your participation on the 10th and 11th of February, 2017.
