Economic Forum
The Mithibai Economic Forum (MEF) is a student forum founded in 2015 by a group of highly motivated students of the Commerce Faculty. With the unrelenting support from Commerce faculty members, the Mithibai Economic Forum was started by Mr. Adityapal Singh Jaggi, Mr. Ayush Jain, Mr. Khushagra Jhunjhunwala and Mr. Saurabh Aggarwal. The primary focus of the forum is to imbibe in students, economic awareness and knowledge. MEF believes that if students have adequate knowledge and information about the problems facing the world, they would be better equipped to resolve them.
Within a short span of three years, MEF has grown bigger than anticipated. It has successfully hosted two annual conclaves in the years 2017 and 2018.

Conclave 2017
Theme- European Disintegration
Eminent Speakers- Rajrishi Singhal (Consulting Editor, Mint), Indradeep Ghosh (Associate Professor & Dean (Faculty) at Meghnad Desai Academy of Economics) and Pankaj Karde (President and head- institutional sales and trading, Systematix Shares and Stocks Ltd.)

Eminent Speakers- Piyush Garg (CIO and Sr. Executive-Vice President, ICICI Securities),Pramod Panda (Partner, Argus Partners;Formerly Principal Chief General Manager, RBI) and Rajeev Pawar ( Head - Balance Sheet and Investments, Edelweiss Financial Services)
MEF has made its presence on social media stronger by interacting with the people via ongoing activities such as ‘Term of the Day’ and’ Fact of the Day. To further its purpose, a new Ambassadors program has been initiated which will nominate MEF Ambassadors who will work towards increase economic awareness amongst the students of the college.

The MEF has two subsidiary bodies functioning under it.
  • The Economic Transcript (TET): Founded in the year 2016 TET is a monthly e-magazine which covers a wide array of topics related to economics and politics. Be it information about how to make a career in the field of economics or major events such as Demonetisation, the US elections and the US-China Trade War, TET, with its blog posts and magazine articles, gives an update on it all.
  • Mithibai Debate Society (MDS): The Mithibai Debate Society hosts intra and inter- collegiate debate competitions with the purpose of inculcating a debating culture amongst students. The MDS has organised intra- college competitions and has several more events lined up for the future. 
The MEF team, with Vijay Parekh as the curator, has been successful in fulfilling the purpose with which it was founded. We hope to continue fulfilling our purpose and invite you all to join us to do the same!
