The faculty is expanding vertically and horizontally. It has been offering the academic programs at Bachelor (B.Sc- Honours), Master (M.Sc) and Doctorate (Ph.D.) levels in Economics from the very date of its establishment.

The Institute carries out its academic programs for female students through the Department of Economics in the Women Campus of the University.
