Message from the HoD

I am pleased to welcome you all to the Department of Economics, COMSATS University Islamabad Lahore Campus. Though the Department of Economics cannot claim to have a long history, it has several achievements to its credit. The most notable achievement is that the Department of Economics is listed in the 301-400 range by Times Higher Education (THE), in the world university ranking 2023, due to its excellent teaching and research accomplishments. The BS Economics program was first introduced in 2009. Subsequently, the MS Economics program was launched in 2013. A significant number of students have graduated since then and are now employed in key positions in the public and private sectors. To address the market’s growing need for more research-intensive programs, the Department of Economics will soon offer (1) a BS in Economics with Data Analytics and (2) a Ph.D. in Economics.
The significance of Economics as an academic discipline can hardly be over-emphasized. The relevance of Economics for a developing country like Pakistan is, again, too obvious to be missed. Economists have historically influenced decision-making in both public and private organizations. The guiding principle of the faculty of the Department of Economics is, therefore, to equip the students with the intellectual skills and critical thinking abilities necessary for addressing socioeconomic problems and creating a brighter future for people in this country and around the world.
The Department of Economics has a rich culture of teaching and research. Economics faculty has generated high-quality research over the years. The Department has received significant funding in the form of grants for research and projects from several sources, including the World Bank and HEC. 228 research publications and 30 research projects have been completed by our faculty members. Faculty members have also established research connections with numerous national and international organizations.
We firmly believe that the Department of Economics at COMSATS University Islamabad, Lahore Campus has the necessary resources to hone your skills to become accomplished economists and contribute to the development of Pakistan and the world. We look forward to helping you achieve your personal, academic, and professional goals.
