Department of Economics and Finance
The department offers the M.Phil program in Economics and Finance which is the latest addition into degree programs offered at the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics (PIDE). The programme offers courses that introduce students to cutting-edge economics and financial theories and their application to both the domestic and global issues. The disciplines of economics and finance have a natural relationship to each other that makes an outstanding combination within a degree program as economics provides the fundamental analytical tools to study business programs and issues including employment, inflation, interest rates, investments, business fluctuations, and national and international financial situation. Finance examines capital and money markets and provides the tools of analysis to deal with financial charges arising from an ever changing economy.
