King Faisal University

About the department :

The school of Business was established in 1984 to include the Department of Economics as a serving department for other specialized departments in the college. Since, in its early stages, the Department of Economics has actively participated in the various stages of development, whether at the school level or at the university level, by teaching economics courses, both theoretical and applied, and by actively participating in the various committees and work teams of the school and University. In 2010, the College Council approved the Bachelor's Program in Business Economics in the Department of Economics. Due to the importance of the energy sector in the economy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Department of Economics has set up a master's program in energy economics.

All this represents a new start for the Department of Economics at King Faisal University. The faculty members of the Department of Economics have also contributed to the completion of advanced-level scientific researches approved by the Deanship of Scientific Research at the University, in order to serve the University and society.
