Department of Economics

Established in 1976

Head of the Department : Dr. K.P. Mani, Professor

To perpetuate the memory of Dr. John Matthai, Finance Minister of India during 1948 50, the University established the Department of Economics in 1976 at Thrissur District on 18 acres of land donated by the family of Dr. John Matthai. The Department started functioning under the leadership of a well known economist, Prof. M.A.Oommen. Over the years, the Department has grown into a prestigious centre for higher studies in economics with a strong orientation in research. A large number of students have made their mark as well-versed economists and came to occupy top positions in international and national institutions. The Department faculty have undertaken and completed many research projects sponsored by UGC, UNDP, ICSSR, Planning Commission, Ministry of Environment, Government of India, Various Commodity Boards and a host of NGOs. The faculty members have publications in international and national journals and they also act as consultants for different organizations. The Department offers Ph.D, M.Phil, and MA programmes. The Department has produced about 87 Ph.Ds so far under the guidance of the Teachers in the Department. At present, the Department has 48 MA students, 8 M.Phil and 55 Ph.D research scholars. A large number of students have made their work as well known economists and come to occupy top positions in national and international institutions and organizations including London School of Economics, Cambridge University, World Bank etc. The Department has a well developed library with a collection of about 10000 titles and over 15 journals. Now the Department is at the verge of launching an Inter University Centre for excellence in Financial Economics and Financial Engineering at the interest of Government of Kerala. The Department will soon start PG courses in Financial Economics and Financial Engineering which will hopefully take the Department to newer and greater heights
