About Uruppika (CEMBAF)

Urupikka is IIMK’s flagship Centre of excellence in macroeconomics and finance, focussed on frontier areas of research and its policy inferences with an overarching objective to bridge knowledge gap amongst researchers and policymakers by interactions amongst these groups as well as between them. Macroeconomics, banking and finance are themes that not only determine the health of the national economy but touch the common man’s life and businesses of varied scales, size and sectors in a several ways. Training business leaders for tomorrow needs management institutes to push frontiers of knowledge in these areas and expose students as leaders of tomorrow to the latest in these areas. For instance, delivering low inflation is the best pre-condition for protecting the poor, along with enhancing financial savings, improving financial reach of the poor, reducing financial volatilities, promoting financial stability and furthering growth on a sustainable basis. The Centre will seek to promote scientific-based thinking based on macroeconomic analysis, forecasts, banking, market-based finance and digital finance inter alia using recent advances in macro-econometric analysis and computational finance.
