The critical role of the subject of Economics and the economists in identifying and suggesting remedial measures for multiple problems hindering the socio-economic growth of a society is well recognized not only in Pakistan but also all over the world. At its present stage of development, Pakistan is facing multiple constraints on the way of economic growth due to a lack of professionals having command over knowledge and its application in various areas of development, policy making, implementation and evaluation.
Even teaching, research, and normal operations of the various institutions in the public and private sectors suffer due to the inadequacy of trained human resources. To fill this gap, we have taken the initiative to train the students with cutting-edge knowledge in economics through undergraduate in economics. These students on graduation will be ready to take jobs in the public and private sector as well as start their own businesses and consultancies in their areas of specialization.
In pursuance of our long-term vision, BS Economics program will start by the University of Narowal in Fall 2020. To further strengthen the BS Economics program, the department is reoriented to offer specializations in Economics & Finance and Business Economics with the objective to prepare students to work in public and private sectors, specifically, banking and development
sector in the country and abroad.

The graduates of this program are expected not only to identify the economic problems but also to suggest a set of alternative solutions. In the specific following are the objectives of this program:
