WHY AT NIU?
NIU offers the opportunity to specialize either in development economics or in econometrics. Unlike any other typical university degree, we will take the students to the frontier of the discipline, covering recent research as well as more established material. The program includes a wide-ranging and diverse set of cutting edge topics in the field of development economics and econometrics with an equally far reaching set of potential application areas.
NIU’s economics graduates through rigorous training will be prepared for careers in planning and development divisions, government institutions, NGO's and research institutes, or for future study or research in graduate or professional schools in economics, public policy or management. Another unique feature is the availability of professional and practical training in an already established and well-knitted set-up in our sister concerns like NUR Student Leadership Program-NSLP, NUR Center for Research and Policy-NCRP and NUR Community Outreach Program-NCOP.
