Economics is an important element of any business career or the basis of a specialist career in economic research and policy. Economics is relevant to the study of a whole range of other disciplines: business; finance; international markets and trade; health; transport; democracy and voting patterns; the environment – including policies on global warming; as well as social equity and wellbeing. An honours year is available upon completion of this major sequence.
Graduates are eligible for membership of the Economics Society of Australia. Professional recognition by the Australasian Institute of Banking and Finance is also available.
An economics major sequence can provide the background for many versatile careers in industry and finance in roles such as an analyst, forecaster, researcher and manager. In government, you may work as a policy researcher and administrator, and in education.
