Program Objectives

The M.Phil Program at the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics (PIDE) has been developed to provide the necessary facilities for training of economists in Pakistan. Given the asymmetrical situation whereby only a small percentage of the entire population has access to higher education, it is hoped that the M.Phil program at PIDE would be a step forward in a critical field of knowledge and expertise. This program is aimed at imparting a full range of knowledge, awareness and expertise in economics to meet the emerging challenges, as well as equipping students with the analytical tools necessary for policy-oriented research.

Eligibility Criteria

A minimum CGPA of 2.5 on a scale of 4.0 (semester system) or 2nd Division (annual system) in Masters Degree (2 years) or 4 years Bachelor Degree in relevant field from any HEC recognized university. Applicant will be selected on the basis of their performance in the admission test, interview and academic record.
