MEssage from the department head

Dr. Md. Azizur Rahman

Professor, Chairman, Department of Economics

Economics is very important as a subject. It belongs to Social science faculty in some Universities and in some other to science faculty. Adam Smith is the Founder of Economics. In all famous Universities of the world including MIT, Harvard University ,Chicago university,Oxford University, Cambridge University and many others Economics is taught with excellenc. What ever be the faculty , Economics is the mother of all sciences. That is why the Nobel Foundation Committee has chosen Economics as a subject for Nobel Prize. Consequently each year we are getting world famous Economist(s ) receiving Nobel Prize. The first Nobel laureate Economists jointly were Ragnar Frisch and Jan Tinbergen in 1969. The first Nobel laureate American Economist was Paul Samuelson in 1970 who was the Founder of MIT graduate Department of Economics.We are proud of two Indian Economists Professor Dr. Amartya Sen received Nobel Prize in 1998 and Prof Dr. Abhijit Vinayak Banrjee received Nobel prize in 2019 .

. Economics is very important because all our life from cradle to grave and beyond we have to run up against the brutal truths of Economics. Without studying Economics we cannot fully understand growth, Budget, tax policy, fiscal policy, monetary policy, fluctuations, inflation,deflation, unemployment, peak, recession, depression, recovery, full employment, trough, macroeconomic stability, cost- benefit analysis, impact of environment pollution and warming.

Regarding the special features of Economics Department of Notre Dame University Bangladesh I want to mention that the faculties of this Department are very friendly , cooperative and devoted to students study.They take high care and give cordial attention to their students for their gradual and sustainable progress.They always motivate students about their unlimited latent potentialities. They allows follow the UNOSC message that a good teacher speaks not only chosen programs but also the needs of the learners.

Participatory class lectures, assignments, quiz, group learning and sharing, group and individual presentations, asking and answering questions, conducting research, and writing research papers, etc.are techniques of the Department. Facuties always give intensive attention to slow learners and try to accelerate fast learners. They try to optimise individual learning outcomes by bridging students--students and students--teachers gaps.

The faculty members of the department have excellent academic records and research backgrounds. We have both permanent faculties and adjunct facilities. The adjunct facilities come from Dhaka University, Jahagirnagar University and Jagnnath university. I have been working as Professor and Chairman of the Department of Economics. We always welcome students in Department of Economics. In final year , Economics students have options either to do thesis or to do internships. Those who go for internships they have opportunities to do it with Bangladesh Bank, Sonali Bank, Janata Bank, Agrani Bank and other reputed public and private organisations. Those who do thesis get chance to do Ph.D at home and abroad after completing Masters degree. At present many of our first Batch students have been doing Ph.D. abroad and some ones doing jobs. Students completing internships usually get employment in different public and private financial institutions and organisations including BCS cadre services.
