About the Department

The Department of Economics at AUC is the first economics department founded in Egypt. Since its establishment in 1947, the department has managed through its solid curriculum and reputable faculty to produce highly qualified graduates who have then assumed key positions in local-private and governmental- as well as international institutions such as the United Nations, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

Despite its long history, the Department of Economics at AUC has succeeded in staying vibrant in its core. This has been achieved through its dynamic international faculty members who are graduates from top Economics schools in the world and the continuous updating of existing courses as well as the creation of new ones to cope with the continuously advancing frontiers in economics.

This continuous rejuvenation in the economics department, while maintaining a high degree of rigor, has made economics major a very popular concentration for AUC students throughout the years. In addition, courses offered by the economics department are often chosen by students to satisfy their collateral and core requirements making the process of satisfying this ever-increasing demand with high quality courses a constant challenge for the economics department that has managed to balance over its long history.
