Faculty of Management and Economics (FME)
Management related disciplines were amongst the first to be offered at PhD level at the Science and Research Branch of the Islamic Azad University (SRBIAU). Initially the PhD degree was research-based but later on Comprehensive Examination and course works became mandatory, requirements that were retroactively applied to the first PhD graduates. At the start only PhD level students were admitted but gradually graduate and post- graduate courses were offered too.
Since 1985, no efforts were spared to introduce new themes and subjects and in 2002 the Faculty of Management and Economics (FME) was established covering a total of 26 sub-disciplines and specialized themes.
In tandem with the growth in the number of students and the disciplines the faculty has endeavored to attract from within the country and abroad prominent, quality and experienced full time, part time and visiting academic staff. Currently the faculty has some 3000 students studying at graduate to doctorate levels. The faculty with 1500 square meter of built space is located in the main campus of the SRBIAU.
