The training of economists at YSU started back in 1921. In 1934 a separate faculty was founded, which operated until 1975. 1975-1983 training of economists at YSU was interrupted due to the establishment of the Yerevan Institute of National Economy. After a break of about ten years, in 1984, the faculty was reopened at the university under the name "Economic Cybernetics", then in 1991, it was renamed the Faculty of Economics, and in 2014, the Faculty of Economics and Management.
The faculty operates a three-level system of full-time and part-time education: Undergraduate, Master's, and Postgraduate.
Among other up-to-date programs, the faculty operates the master's educational program "Data Science in Business", which is implemented in the framework of cooperation with San Jose State University, USA. The best students have the opportunity to continue their studies at San Jose State University starting from the second year, receiving a double degree and taking an internship in Silicon Valley organizations.
Starting from 2002, based on the faculty's scientific potential, the RA Higher Qualification Committee's professional council awarding candidate and doctorate degrees in economics has been operating at YSU.
There is also the Scientific Analytical Center of Constitutional Economics, where the researches are aimed at reducing the constitutional deficit in the country and solving the conceptual problems of national security.
Leading scientists of the field teach at the faculty, who undergo training in prestigious international educational and scientific institutions. The best specialists of the republic's state administration, finance and banking sectors, and leading organizations also teach in a collaborative manner.
Faculty of Economics and Management has cooperative relations with both local and international organizations and scientific and educational institutions.
The daily life of students in the faculty becomes more complete thanks to the activities of student structures. Within the framework of exchange programs, students of the faculty have the opportunity to study at prestigious universities abroad, to participate in international programs and projects.
In recent years, the faculty annually graduates more than 400 graduates in various forms of education, who work in the state system (including RA ministries and departments, state administration and local self-government bodies), the RA Central Bank, commercial banks, private enterprises and elsewhere.
