Economics is a basic discipline for a well-rounded management education. The curriculum for doctoral students, therefore, includes several courses in theoretical and applied economics.  Significant  research  has  been  done  by faculty members of the area on the efficiency of public enterprises,  fiscal  and  monetary  policy,  sources  of  economic growth, comparative rates of growth in developing countries, regional disparity in growth in India, planning for rural development and employment, entrepreneurship development,  regulation  (especially  that relating  to  infrastructure), innovation and alliances at the firm level, labour market issues, agricultural policy and trade issues, and policies relating to IPRs and FDI.

The programme has an explicit objective of training students in the tools of modern economic analysis to make them competent researchers and teachers. Most students have taken up teaching and research careers in leading academic institutions or research and consultancy positions in business and government. The environment at IIMA provides many opportunities to develop their skills by working closely with faculty and attending workshops and seminars.
