About Department of Economics

The Department of Economics at Stamford University Bangladesh has completed a decade-long journey successfully since its inception in 2005 under the supervision and leadership of its founder Chairman, Prof. Dr. ATM Zahurul Huq. Initially, the department started a Bachelor's program (four years) with few students aiming at a quality education in Economics. A master’s degree in Economics has been introduced after a couple of years to meet the increased demand of students. There are a group of highly qualified and experienced teachersfrom reputed universities who are engaged as full-time and part-time teachers in the department.

The options to choose from when it comes to higher education in Bangladesh may seem many but few are on par in quality and history with Stamford.

Message from the Chairman

Dr. Abdus Sattar
Professor & Chairman
Department of Economics
Stamford University Bangladesh

The Department of Economics at Stamford University Bangladesh has completed more than 18 years of journey successfully since its establishment in 2005. The unique feature of the Stamford University Bangladesh is that it possesses a distinct Department of Economics equipped with highly qualified teachers offering both BSS and MSS degrees in Economics. Only a very few private universities do possess a separate Department of Economics for offering degrees. The goal of the Department of Economics is to impart quality education to graduate and undergraduate students of Economics and to prepare them as the future economists, development practitioners and researchers to serve the country to the best of their ability. To meet the goal some crucial specific objectives of the Department include providing knowledge of economic theories and their application to the real-world situation, making the students aware of future economic challenges and prospects, and preparing them to become future leaders in teaching, research and administrative profession by making them efficient with necessary knowledge and analytical skills.

Economics being a social science, students are groomed as economists as well as responsible citizens capable of discharging social responsibilities. They are nurtured to discharge philanthropic social responsibilities. We have students’ associations which ensure participation of students in extracurricular activities. They arrange seminars, quiz competitions, sports, etc. Students also take part in welfare-oriented programs such as participation in anti-smoking drive, helping the poor people through distribution of warm clothes during winter, helping the disaster-stricken people through giving aid, etc. By virtue of their participation in such voluntary activities, the feeling of patriotism, benevolence and humanism are instilled in the mindset of students. Because of this type of proven qualifications some of the graduates have been employed with high social responsibilities in various organizations.

It is my immense pleasure and great pride to welcome you as a prospective student, parent, faculty member or an interested member of the public to read our web pages and find a way to become part of the Stamford Department of Economics family. If you are interested to know more about our program, we would encourage you to visit our university website which will provide detailed information about our activities and programs. We are eager for receiving your contribution to the department and we expect to be part of your glorious success. I am very much honored to change this esteemed department of Economics, at Stamford University of Bangladesh.
