Dr B. R. Ambedkar School of Economics University, Bengaluru is established for public benefit and accordingly its objectives are set to establish a State of Art School of learning economics and other social sciences. It is set to endeavour on the lines indicated by Dr B.R. Ambedkar, an economist who is the architect of the Constitution of India.

“The student so trained should learn to distinguish between what may fairly be called matter of fact and what is certainly mere matter of opinion. He should be accustomed to distinguish issues, and to look at separate questions each on its own merits and without an eye to their bearings on some cherished theory. He should learn to state fairly, and even sympathetically the position of those to whose practical conclusions he is most stoutly able to weight evidence, to follow and criticize argument and put his own value on authorities.”

(From Works and Speeches of Dr B R Ambedkar, Vol II-P-296-297)

The University aspires to provide necessary support in economic human power to the country and create an inclusive society through the participation of key stakeholders in government, public, private and academic institutes.
