GENERAL INFORMATION OF ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT
The Economics program is one of the undergraduate degree programs given at Samara University. The opening of the program is in line with the country’s efforts towards developing an efficient utilization of its resources in a sustainable way. The importance and need for planned development of available resources of the country can hardly be overstated. Though Ethiopia is endowed with a large amount of natural resources, critical shortage of capacity has greatly hindered the development of the country. The development of available resources must be a central element of the country’s strategy to improve the quality of life of its people.
The Department of Economics at Samara University was launched in 2001with the objective of addressing the country’s trained human power shortage in the field of economics. The current program is found chiefly to lack the mathematical and computational skill the students need to acquire. Given the three years program, however, it is hardly possible to incorporate the courses that can address the shortcomings. Despite of this, significant adjustments are made to address the draw backs to some extent.
On the community services aspect, currently the department is undertaking four researches in collaboration of the university. Furthermore, the department is also undertaking study on the estimation of the regional Gross Domestic Product (RGDP) for the year 2004E.C of Afar National Regional State.
