This multidisciplinary undergraduate program combines Economics and International Relations with Law. This can result in a better appreciation of the forces that affect our business and personal lives today. Economics today relies more on mathematical and statistical models for substantiation of its theoretical base, international relations has extended beyond its intellectual parameters to embrace real-world dynamics. The program includes core courses in the respective disciplines as well as current issues and hotly debated topics like food security, Genetically Modified Organism (GMOs) versus organic farming, political economy issues, trade roots and economic corridors, CPEC, etc. This will not only makes the courses interesting, but increases the marketability of students. The law courses would equip the students with a working knowledge of the legal issues which they are likely to encounter in their careers. Select law courses would not only give students a strong foundation of legal theory based on traditional mercantile law and company law but also provide them with a working knowledge of such practical areas as patent laws, banking laws, insurance laws and compliance issues.

The BS Economics, Law and International Relations (ELI) program will require students to complete 48 courses i.e. 144 credit hours of coursework. Internship of six weeks duration in a firm approved by the Institute is also obligatory.
