This is done through the method of statistical analysis and research. They make use of financial data, balance sheets and past research analysis and then predict the outcome.

As you can note that the job of an economists plays a vital role and hence they find jobs in major organizations both private and government sectors.

  • RBI
  • Stock markets
  • Indian Economic services
  • Indian Civil services
  • Ministry of Economics affairs
  • PlanningCommissionof India
  • National Institute of Public finance and insurance
  • Service sector

Miscellaneous
Some of the positions offered includes:
