There are three campuses at Yangon University of Economics: ‘Kamayut’, ‘Hlaing’ and ‘Ywathagyi’ Campuses.’ Yangon University of Economics (Kamayut Campus), situated at the corner of Pyay Road and Inya Road was established on the 2nd of November in 1964. 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.
