Re: Admission in Economics or Statistics (Hons) at Presidency College, Kolkata

Presidency University is situated in Kolkata. It was founded in 1817 but granted full university status in 2010. It is one of the first institutes of Western-type higher education in Asia. It was taken over the British Government in 1855 as the College of the Bengal Presidency and placed in 1857 under the newly founded Calcutta University.

Presidency University offers Economics and Statistics both subjects. The Department of Statistics is one of the oldest departments in the country and perhaps also in Asia. It has the capacity of 20 seats. The thrust areas of the Department of Economics are Microeconomic and Macroeconomic Theory, Statistics and Econometrics, Mathematical Economics and Finance – both corporate and international.
