The Department of Economics aims to train the next generation of economists, equipped with tools of economic analysis, critical thinking and analytical problem solving skills required for a thorough understanding of the economic concepts and issues. For this purpose, the program is designed to provide the students with a solid foundation in economic theory and policy, blended with a high level of statistical, mathematical and econometric analysis training. Our accomplished faculty, all of whom hold Ph.D. degrees from world-renowned universities, are dedicated to deliver highest quality teaching and research in Economics at par with the global standards.
The Department of Economics offers a variety of courses each year including the core courses in micro/macroeconomics, money and banking, international economics, public finance, financial economics, game theory, econometrics, statistics, mathematics and computer, as well as a wide selection of elective courses that allow students specialize from the junior year onwards in areas of their choice. The extensive curriculum is designed to serve as a solid stepping-stone into careers in government, business and the non-profit sector, and for advanced graduate studies.
The medium of instruction is English. Students whose level of English is not satisfactory may be required to attend a one-year English Prepatory Program prior to the first term of their academic program. Students’ English proficiency, particularly in the field of economics, is further improved through the academic English courses offered every semester.
The Department offers an undergraduate (B.S.) program in Economics and a graduate (M.S.) program in Financial Economics. The undergraduate program in Economics provides students with the opportunity to pursue Double Major and Minor programs at a field of study of their interest outside their major. Students can also participate in the Erasmus exchange program, which enables them to study abroad at a partner European university for up to two semesters.
