Introduction
The discipline of Economics is the key to an understanding and analysis of economies and their constituent components. In recent decades, this role has been strengthened by the infusion of mathematical, statistical and computational methods in the subject matter of Economics. Rigour of analysis, empirical validation of economic hypotheses and contributions to business and public policy have been the main pillars on which the discipline's reputation has been built.

The undergraduate curriculum offered by the Department of Economics builds on a strong core of theoretical analysis and empirical methods of economics and covers in depth a wide range of specialized sub-fields of the discipline. The Department emphasizes the importance of a strong curriculum and good teaching. A primary mission of the Department is to produce graduates that will meet the diverse needs and demands of all sectors of the national economy and beyond. It aims to impart to students important transferable skills for lifelong learning and employability.

The Department of Economics has an established reputation as one of the largest and leading departments of Economics in the Asia-Pacific region. Faculty members research areas span a wide range of economic fields, with strength in the core areas of microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics, as well as in particular fields such as game theory and industrial organization, labor economics, education, financial economics, and growth theory and development with special reference to Asia. Recognition of the contributions by the faculty has, inter alia, taken the form of editorships; election to membership of scholarly societies; invitations to scholarly conferences; and consultancies with international organizations and the governments of Singapore and other ASEAN countries.
