The discipline of Economics has grown in many dimensions in the recent past the two important dimensions are; one is its forays into unconventional areas that were traditionally considered out of bound for economic analysis. These include, for example, health and education. But the most important area in the current context is the Environment, because of the challenge to make economic growth compatible with the growing environmental concerns. Environmental Economics, although has its roots in externality theories, Public good theories and the general equilibrium theory of the mid-twentieth century, the field really took off in the last quarter of the last century and  has been growing ever since.

The second development is the large scale use of quantitative methods made possible by the IT revolution. This has made generation of data, its dissemination and access for analysis easy. Business Analytics has emerged as important area using quantitative techniques in the design of business strategies. India has developed as an important Knowledge Processing Hub in business analytics for major financial and marketing and consultancy institutions across the world
