ikonAbout Undergraduate Program

The undergraduate curriculum at ASBU includes both departmental and non-departmental elective courses from a wide spectrum of disciplines apart from basic courses such as microeconomics, macroeconomics, public finance, and monetary policy. In line with the aim of ASBU to be a research-oriented university, the department not only conveys the existing theories and ideas in economics to students but also helps them gain a perspective of doing research thanks to short-essay assignments and term projects.
