ii. BASE-ic Café: A holistic understanding of any subject requires an interdisciplinary approach and thus, Economics at BASE is taught with a view of imparting an overall understanding of Economics in the Social Sciences perspective. This is done by not only having theoretical courses on subjects such as Ethics, Economy and Society, Political Economy, Perspectives in Social Sciences etc. but by also conducting discussions on various topics of Social Sciences disciplines by inviting various leading researchers in their respective ﬁelds. This initiates rich academic discussions which widens the knowledge of the students and is in sharp contrast to the dogmatic and traditional styles of teaching. This approach builds a bridge between Economics and other social sciences disciplines which is helpful in gaining a broad understanding of the subject.
WiFi Campus: Entire campus will be provided with high-speed WiFi.
Smart Classrooms: Classrooms are made smart classrooms for students comfort and providing a good atmosphere for learning.
