Yangon University of Economics (Hlaing Campus), situated on Parami Road in Hlaing Township was opened as a branch of the Yangon University of Economics (Main Campus) in 1976-1977 academic year when regional colleges were opened. At that time, the first year and the second year Eco students had to attend at the Hlaing Campus. In 2015-16 academic year, four bachelor degree courses for Accounting, Population Studies, Public Administration and Development Studies were opened. As four additional undergraduate courses were opened in 2019-2020 academic year, there are now eight undergraduate courses in total at Hlaing Campus. Yangon University of Economics (Ywathagyi Campus) was established on the 15th of November in 2000.
