Welcome to School of Economics
The Department of Economics, which had its origin way back in 1959 as the extension centre of the University of Madras, blossomed into a full-fledged Department of Economics at the time of the formation of Madurai University in the year 1966. Department of Econometrics was created in 1982.
The Department of Economics made significant progress ever since its establishment and was selected by the UGC under the Departmental Research Support Programme (DRS) in 1991 for its further growth. Subsequently the Department of Economics was converted into School of Economics with seven constituent Departments namely Agricultural Economics, Econometrics, Environmental Economics, Human Resource Development Economics, Industrial Economics, Mathematical Economics and Rural Development Economics in the year 1991.
