Nandini Mehta

Undergraduate Student

Major: Economics

Minor: Finance

I became interested in economics in class 12. I was a commerce student then and liked accounting and business studies.

On campus, I took a few courses in economics and realized this is meant for me. I did four math courses because the economics department advised me to, and I did ‘Principles of Economics.’

Finance helps me understand how money works and the way people use their money. Economics is a study of choices. So these two together make a whole subject, which helps me understand how resources are used, and also money as one particular resource.

I’ve always like micro-economics, I like to understand the building blocks of the system.

I have two or three options in mind for my graduate studies. I might continue economics or shift to an MBA. But most likely it’ll be economics.
