The Department of Economics was established in 1961. It offers an undergraduate programme (BA in Economics) with Gujarati or English as instruction mediums. In response to recent trends, a UGC-recognized, Career Oriented Certificate Programme (COP) in Foreign Trade Management has been added, open to students of all disciplines.
The department organizes self-learning programmes, interactive question-and-answer sessions, and encourages individual participation and continuous learning through assignments and class tests on a regular basis.
Our students can avail of the five journals we subscribe to, as well as of the books (a total of 3687 – 392 in Gujarati) to which yearly additions are made. The COP programme has its own library.
The department has established collaboration links with the Sardar Patel Institute of Economics and Social Research and with the Research Information System, (RIS) Delhi.
