The University of the Philippines School of Economics (UPSE) provides instruction leading to undergraduate and graduate degrees in economics.
UPSE was established in 1965. The Department of Economics is responsible for the academic degree programs, while the Economics Research Center oversees the School’s research projects. A third functional department, the Public Affairs Office, coordinates the School’s various extension, training and public service activities. These are the three pillars the UPSE is known for. Now nearing its 50th year of existence, UPSE adheres to international standards of excellence and constantly introduces innovations in teaching, research and public service. The School is dedicated to making its teaching of economics compare with the best globally.
