The Faculty of Economics offers a unique Masters program in Economics with specialization in Economic Development and a PhD program in Economics.
The programs introduce students to the intellectual breadth, theoretical rigor, and empirical skills that are necessary for conducting advanced research, teaching, and working on issues of economic development in the South Asian region. With a vibrant community of scholars and students from all over South Asia, the Faculty strives to emerge as a major center of higher learning in this region.The students graduating from the programs in the Faculty will be well trained to join academia, corporate sector, or international and national development agencies and policy think tanks.
The Faculty has the right mix of youth and experience. The small student teacher ratio, which is unparalleled in other institutions in this region, provides opportunity for students and faculty members to have regular personal interactions both within and outside classrooms. Further, each Masters student gets the opportunity to do independent research and write a dissertation, which is not available in most other programs in the region.
The students have access to a well-stocked library, a wide range of electronic resources, and a state-of-the-art computer laboratory. The Faculty is also in the process of building up a comprehensive documentation and reference center with special emphasis on the SAARC region.
