    I really liked the course.the course is very well organised and upto the mark. Along with videos on mathematical economics, I also liked the last video on how to communicate in mooc discussion forum.The coordinator and her team must have put lot of efforts and made proper planning before starting this course. I am a assistant professor in economics always wanted to learn econometrics n mathematical economics, but could not get time , the foreign course on same were difficult to understand due to their language pronouciation, but this Indian course is very very good and easy to understand.looking forward to you for a series of such courses taking us from basic to advanced learning of the subject. Shikha mam, I have become your fan.thank you.

    This is the best course for me. Because it offers high-quality learning resources including study materials and video lectures.The mathematical economics course is fantastic! The teachers are authorities in their domains, and the courses are organized with efficiency. The learning process is made more in-depth by the interactive tests and discussion boards.

    I find this course really a great help to understand the economics.
    The way of organisation of course content is really logical and awesome related to the subject.
    One has to join this course to understand the mathematical economics.
    I suggest that mathematical economics at some advanced level should also be introduced.

    The course is very helpful in enhancing our mathematical skills.The creative videos are there which help us in understanding the concept and it almost give us the feel like that we are studying in a classroom.

    This was a wonderful course. Prof. Sikha Ahmad's lectures were very easy to understand.
    As I am an engineer, I was already familiar with mathematics but I didn't know how it could be applied to economic problems. I especially liked the material on input output tables and use of differential equations to solve economic growth problems.
    I would like to do some more work using real data from CSO, CMIE and RBI.
