Mr. Sardar Fawad Saleem
(Head of Department)
It is pleasure to welcome you all to the department of economics at AUST, Abbottabad. Being an art of decision making, Economics needs to be a dynamic and fast-changing subject in order to deal with the vast challenges, the world is facing today. It is a universal fact that no social science discipline can ever be regarded as complete. In today’s world Economics is fundamental to every discipline of study! Therefore Economics, without exaggeration, leads from the front. Economics is not mere a theoretical discipline, indeed it is a practical problem solving entity, essential for pulling the world out of Economic crisis.
A degree in economics gives you the ability to explain complex data in easily understandable terms to different audiences. Our ambition is to produce Economics graduates who are equipped, not only to face the ever changing challenges of modern Economic world, but also to put forward the effective solutions. Economists begin their research on an issue by conducting surveys and collecting data. In some cases, they evaluate historical data. Using statistical and other mathematical methods, economists analyze and interpret the data. Our faculty strives to produce the manpower that will contribute to the development of Pakistan and the Muslim Ummah in order to gain a competitive edge in the global village.
I look forward to welcoming you here and hope that you will enjoy yourself and participate fully in life at AUST. On behalf of the faculty and the university, I wish you good luck in your endeavors and hope to see you with us.
