Message from the HoD

I welcome all of you to the Department of Economics at CUI, Lahore Campus. As you all know that CUI has taken great strides in short span of time in becoming one of the leading universities in research and quality education which is evident from various international and national rankings (ranked 1st in 2016-17, and 2nd in 2017-18 within Pakistan according to Times Higher Education Ranking). Keeping with it, the Department of Economics has always endeavored to achieve excellency both in teaching and research. We have a dedicated and qualified faculty to peruse our objective of transforming into leading economics department in the country. We started off with undergraduate program in economics in 2009 and built on its success, the MPhil program in economics was launched in year 2013. Since then, a significant number of students have been graduated and already working in the public and private sector primarily as research analyst. Few of them are part of teaching institutions on administrative and faculty positions. Considering the market needs, the Department of Economics is soon launching the PhD program in Economics as it has the requisite research facilities and human resource. In addition to this, the department is also considering to diverse its undergraduate program through the launching of interdisciplinary programs of combination of Economics with Finance, Business, IT and social sciences. Quality of Human Resource is one area where CUI has given much importance over the years and department of economics is no exception. Out of total 16 Faculty members, 12 have PhD degrees both from renowned local and foreign

universities. Consequently, the Department has produced high quality of research over the years and the faculty members have developed research linkages with various national and international organizations. The Department has attracted significant funding in the form of research and project grants from various quarters. Based on our own market research, our graduates are enjoying good reputation among employers. This is because our curriculum provides students with in depth insight of the contemporary issues facing the economies. On top of that, we strive to develop the personality of our students through grooming their communication skills and extracurricular activities. The department organizes various workshops and seminar on regular basis to familiarize students with latest research techniques in economic data analysis.

I am fully confident that with the dedication and perseverance of our faculty, the introduction of new program aligned with market needs and excellence in research, we will shortly become the leading and recognizable seat of learning in economics.
