History

Until the founding of the Monywa Institute of Economics in September 1998, the Yangon Institute of Economics was the only university of economics and business school in Myanmar. The institute came into being at a time when most universities and colleges in Myanmar had been shut down by the military government since December 1996, following student demonstrations in Yangon.[3] The school closures were part of a series of multi-year school closures throughout the 1990s, following the nationwide uprising against the military government in 1988 that were initiated by the university students in Yangon.

The founding of MIE is widely believed to be part of the government's wider program to disperse college students away from the established universities and their city center locations to more isolated remote locations.

Programs

The institute mainly offers bachelor's degree and undergraduate diploma programs. Regular bachelor's degree programs take three years and Honors programs take four years. The master's programs take two years. The institute's Human Resource Development (HRD) Center offers undergraduate diploma and certificate programs in Accountancy, Basic Applied Economics, Advanced Applied Economics, Applied Information Technology, etc.[4]

MBA program

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program is offered in English by the Department of Management Studies. The two-year program consists of eight quarters (semesters). Three four-credit courses are offered in each quarter. To complete the MBA, the candidates must take 24 courses to obtain the required 96 credit units.[5]

Reflecting the relatively undeveloped business environment in Myanmar, the MBA degree offered is only in general management. No other majors such as accounting, finance or banking are available.[6]
