Bengaluru Dr. B. R. Ambedkar School of Economics is established for public beneﬁt and accordingly its objectives are set to establish a State of Art School of learning economics and other social sciences. We are set to endeavour on the lines indicated by Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, who is considered as the architect of the Constitution of India, a sociologist and an economist. He wrote:
“The student so trained should learn to distinguish between what may fairly be called matter of fact and what is certainly mere matter of opinion. He should be accustomed to distinguish issues, and to look at separate questions each on its own merits and without an eye to their bearings on some cherished theory. He should learn to state fairly, and even sympathetically the position of those to whose practical conclusions he is most stoutly able to weight evidence, to follow and criticize argument and put his own value on authorities.”
(From Works and Speeches of Dr B R Ambedkar, Vol II-P-296-297)
BASE is expected to provide necessary support in economic human power to the country and creating an inclusive society through participation of key stake holders in government, public, private and academic institutes.
The focus of the Bengaluru Dr. B.R.

Freedom to learn, litheness in teaching and ease in learning leading to androgogy shall be the fundamental model of education.
