Introduction

The study of economics involves an analytical look at how scarce resources are allocated to various areas of production. It emphasizes the importance of making choices between desirable alternatives. The study of economics provides tools to make these choices in such areas as employment, economic growth, price stability, and trade. Bachelor of Science in Economics program is designed for those students who, after completing their 12 years of education, are looking for some knowledge based, career oriented and market determined educational program in the field of economics. The program is the blend of different courses like theoretical, quantitative, and applied areas in economics, which will enable the students to review, analyze and provide solutions to complex problems with intellectual independence.

Our existing educational system has become nearly obsolete now and far away from international standards. To meet the challenging requirements of today’s fast-growing world, it is the need of the hour to change the system that does not meet the international standards. For this purpose, The Department of Economics has planned to launch BS Economics Program. The BS degree is deemed equivalent to M.Sc. Economics. BS Economics degree holders are being preferred throughout the world as their knowledge is more focused on discipline of the degree program.
