When compared to the present supply of MS Economics, there are several job chances. In fact, due to a scarcity of inept graduates, some posts remain unfilled. Economists and Planners in the public sector, such as the Ministries of Planning and Development, Finance Division, Labor & Manpower, Economic Affairs, and Industries, are looking for qualified graduates in Economics with advanced degrees. Similarly, research institutes such as the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics, the Punjab Economic Research Institute (PERI), the State Bank of Pakistan, Public Sector Training Institutes, and Applied Economics Research Centers are always on the lookout for qualified economists. Aside from that, Chambers of Commerce and Industries, international finance institutes, and other similar organizations are looking to acquire such experts. In the federal government, a new service group called the Economic Management Group (EMG) has been established, and Economists will be in high demand in teaching and research institutes.
