In 1973, the prestigious University of Delhi, introduced the Master's Program in Business Economics baptized as MBE. It offered a unique blend of theoretical excellence paired with the practical realities of the Business World. "Change is the only constant" is an adage that the Department sincerely believes in. To that end, it kept adapting itself over time, culminating with the introduction of an MBA in Business Economics which replaced the earlier MBE program in 2015.

An eclectic and erudite group of faculty, researchers, and professionals, with their vast pool of managerial expertise, gives the Department a distinctive edge and an exalted stature. Today the Department takes immense pride in the students who pass through its hallowed halls and the lasting impact that they have on the industry through their qualitative and quantitative expertise in their domain.

The Department of Business Economics has established itself as an epitome of excellence. Over the years, the department has fostered strong alliances with corporate houses and retained its position as their preferred recruitment destination.
