Under the aegis of MAEER and MIT Group of Institutions and with a legacy of more than 35 years, MIT World Peace University stands tall to meet the enormous expectations of society and mankind. Gone are those days, when Economics was supposed to be a traditional and moreover a theoretical subject. Indeed, with the technological advancements & globalization, Economics has become vibrant, practical and industry oriented, thereby, accentuating to a huge demand for research-based approach, IT-enabled analytics, and study of emerging fields such as Oil Economics, Cognitive Economics, International Economics, Health Economics, Urban Economics, Big-Data Economics, Game Theory. In today’s era, Economics is viewed as one of the most promising careers, indeed one of the most sought after; due to its omnipresence and varied degree of the intersection with different disciplines.

The Faculty of Economics supports B.Sc. (Hons.) and M.Sc. programs in Economics. Both these programs have a strong conceptual, analytical and quantitative-based focus with an emphasis on empirical applications. The hallmark of these programs is the dynamic curriculum, which is continuously reviewed and updated in line with the latest developments in the subject.

The rich pedagogical features -case-based questions, application-based questions, dress-rehearsal, and role plays along with open house student-faculty focused group discussions, industry and field visits, rural immersion, besides national & international study tours; all this will definitely equip students with full potential and confidence to face the real-life situations with guaranteed professional and personal success.

During your academic voyage with the Faculty, be assured about the great exposure to varied curricular and extra-curricular experiences which encompasses Guest sessions, interaction with eminent Economist, conferences, workshops, research activities and internships during your course program that will contribute to your personal, holistic growth in the next few years.
