Welcome to the Department of Economics
The Department of Economics is one of the oldest departments in the university. It started with the university in 1982 and has been an important department in the evolution of this citadel of learning. It has over the years graduated a large number of students who have attained important positions in various endeavours of life. The department remains one of the most sought after in the university. It has evolved over time to fit into global dynamics in the study of Economics. It has introduced new courses to reflect a changing world. This department, is therefore, well suited to train the next generations of economists who will use their skills and competencies to drive a new developmental order globally without losing sights of the needs of people of Africa. The department will keep producing world class graduates with global skills but with the capabilities of solving local problems whenever they find themselves in the world.
