The Department of Economics is one of the basic departments in Al-Hilla College, Al-Ahlia University. The importance of this department appears as a result of the breadth of economic problems, and their inclusion in all aspects of life, whether at the micro or macro level. On the other hand, it can be said that the economic problem is the basis for the emergence of other political and social problems. Therefore, Hilla University College took the initiative to open this department in 2009, in an effort by the college to respond to the requirements of the labor market, and to provide qualified scientific cadres, which can contribute to finding solutions to the economic problems that economic establishments suffer from, and improving their performance to ensure their continuity, growth, development and raising their efficiency.
The Department of Economics was established in 2009, with the aim of graduating cadres familiar with economic sciences at the bachelor’s level.
