Program Introduction

The economy of Pakistan is facing many modern-day challenges. The Dr. Hassan Murad School of Management at UMT plans to play a significant role to cope with the challenges by producing academically and technically more qualified human power in Economics. More specifically, the primary and major aim of the program is to produce more qualified teachers for degree colleges and researchers/analysts for public/private organizations, banks, and industries. BS (Honors) program of a four-year duration has already been launched at many degree colleges in Pakistan. According to the latest information, BS(Hon) program has started in 26 top colleges in 12 districts of Punjab, therefore, the demand for teachers having MS degree in Economics will definitely enhance accordingly as Economics is opted as a major by most of the students in the social sciences group.

An additional aim of this program is to enhance the competitiveness of UMT graduates in Economics so that they have an edge not only in Pakistan’s labor market but also they can compete for jobs in the international labor market like graduates of internationally recognized universities.
