Why study the Bachelor of Economics?

The study of economics is central to an understanding of business, markets, trade, government policies, international issues, globalisation, health, development, and the environment. This program is for students intending to become analysts, advisors, and economists in the public and private sectors and leads to careers in business, finance, international development, health, human resource management, marketing, management and research.

The Bachelor of Economics degree provides you with a comprehensive understanding of the overall context of business and government, and the high-level technical skills to analyse economic and social data and events. It will equip you with key capabilities to develop economic and social policy for those who want to work in fields such as financial markets, business, banking, and consulting in both the private and public sectors.

This specialist program will provide you with an excellent grounding in economic theory and business statistics and will allow you to complete a major in economics, agricultural economics, environmental and resource economics, financial economics or the more statistically based econometrics.
