Dean’s Message

I am pleased to welcome current and prospective students and other website visitors including fellow faculty, staff members and other stakeholders of the college. The establishment of the then faculty of Business and Economics and now College of Business and Economics is part of the move to transform the two independent academic institutes in Bahir Dar city into a university called “Bahir Dar University”. Since its establishment the collage has achieved so much in terms of the number of professionals it produces in different specialization areas as well as research and community services. It has the youngest and energetic staff but with quickly improving profile. College of Business and Economics is one the youngest and yet the largest academic unit in the university with the highest student enrolment and the biggest number of graduates. The college is organized into six departments each of them has most demanded programs both at undergraduate and post graduate levels. As per findings of the tracer study, the rate of employment of graduates from our various programs is one of the highest in the university. We are strongly committed to continuously improve so that we keep on making positive impact on business and economics related professions and to the community at large. The purpose of this website is part of our effort to connect with our potential and current students and stakeholders who would like to use our service and work with us in research and various industry engagements. Hence, I hereby invite you to navigate the college website to explore our program offerings and their curricula, opportunities available and potential collaborations. I hope the website helps you to gain valuable information. Meselu Alamnie (PhD) Dean of College of Business and Economics Bahir Dar University
