DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMICS

We are committed to excellence in both teaching and research. 

PHILOSOPHY

The philosophy and mission statement underlying the economics programme is to produce world class graduates equipped with critical skills and abilities to abstract using simplified models that identify the essence of a problem; analyse and reason deductively and inductively; marshal evidence, assimilate structure and analyse qualitative and quantitative data; communicate concisely the results to a wide audience, including those with no training in economics; think critically about the limits of one’s analysis in a broader socio-economic context; and draw economic policy inferences as well as recognize the potential constraints in their applications.

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the programme are to:

  • Create in students the awareness of and enthusiasm for economics and its applications;
  • Involve the students in an in tellectually stimulating and satisfying experience of learning and studying;

  • Equip students with appropriate tools of analysis to tackle issues and problems of economic policy;
  • Develop in students, through the study of economics, a range of transferable skills that will be of value in employment as well as in self-employment;
  • Provide students with the knowledge and skill base, from which they can proceed to further studies in economics, related areas or in inter-disciplinary areas that involve economics;
