Brief History

Department of Economics started its activity as a department in the field of “business economics” in the Department of Social Sciences in 2009. In 2011, with the approval from Ministry of Higher Education, we became an independent department. Currently, the Department of Economics has about 800 students and 35 full-time and adjunct professors with doctorate and master’s degrees. Launch of Business Economics and Business Administration at undergraduate level in the first stage of the formation of the department followed by Economic Sciences and Economic Development for master’s degree were the initial steps towards our success. We meet the institutions, agencies, banks and enterprises’ dire need in the private and government sectors by presenting them with experts, economists and skilled managers and professionals.

Business Economics was established and recognized as one of majors under the Department of Social Sciences in 2011. With the establishment of Economics as major in 2012, Business Economics, Business Administration and Education Management were shifted to the supervision of Department of Economics. The department was led by a dean, two deputies and two assistants. Later in 2017, as per the university policy, two heads for each Business Administration and Business Economics were appointed. They now work under the supervision of the Economics Department.

In the same way, most of the essential activities of the department are supervised by three committees:

  • Curriculum Development Committee
  • Strategic Plan Development Committee
  • Accreditation Committee
