Economics is the uniting bond between the social, political, and cultural life of a country. The study of Economics is essential for understanding society as well as business.
The Economics Department faculty introduces students to the social science of economics by engaging students in analytic and critical thinking as they learn how society manages money and resources and formulates the highest possible standard of living for its members. Students learn how wealth is produced, distributed and consumed as society deals with the various related problems of labour, finance and taxation. Macroeconomics covers aggregates of firms, households, prices, wages, and income. Microeconomics analyzes supply and demand in terms of individual price determination, resource allocation, and income determination.
