At The University of Economics in Bratislava, in the academic year 1951/1952 the study program economics of industry was created. The responsibility for this field of study took the Department of economics of industry, which was formed in the academic year 1950/1951 out of the Department of industry and the construction industry. Department of economics of industry, and also, its follower, Department of Business economy, belongs to one of the oldest Faculty departments.
In 1990, the Department of Economics and Industry management was renamed for the Department of Business Economy. By the year 1992 the department was the coordinator of the study field Economics of industry and was economy and the study specialization Economics of construction.
