Department of Economics

Describing what he called the "master economist", Keynes once wrote: "He must reach a high standard in several different directions and must combine talents not often found together. He must be [sic] mathematician, historian, statesman, philosopher." With its traditional strength in the liberal arts, and its strong connections with the world of business and public sectors, the Department of Economics presents an excellent environment for developing such a combination of talents.

Its faculty members teach a broad spectrum of courses in different areas of concentration. These include economic development, international trade, environmental economics, human resource economics, econometrics, labor economics and public finance.

Most of the alumni of the undergraduate and graduate degree programs are employed in private corporations, financial institutions, and the government.


The following are the objectives of the Department of Economics:

  1. To build on what we have accomplished in the area of teaching and research in order to become a leading institution in our discipline
  2. To strengthen our mission to teach and train students in economic analysis and methodology in order to develop individuals who can contribute effectively to policy formulation, basic and advanced teaching in economics and research
  3. To develop further our capability and expertise in theory and empirical research, directed to the generation and communication of new knowledge and ideas in economics and to the effective design of policy in the country
