School of Economics
Economics is a diverse, fascinating discipline that addresses a range of 'big' issues in modern life and plays a central role in shaping the broad framework of society at every level.
The School of Economics at the University of Sydney has a long and proud history through its research strength and teaching excellence. One of the most highly ranked centres for research in economics globally, our staff are leaders in their research fields. This expertise is reflected in our degree programs, both undergraduate and postgraduate, which promote a deep understanding of the key concepts of economics and a focus on contemporary issues.
The quality of our program is shown in the quality of our graduates. Our alumni are highly sought and are now leaders in the Reserve Bank, the Treasury and other policy departments, international agencies like the OECD, financial institutions and NGOs. Graduates from our program have gone on to further study - or now teach at - some of the finest institutions in the World.
Whether a student – current or prospective – or just interested in our research and other activities, we welcome you to our website and to the School of Economics.
The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Sydney has partnered with organisations such as Westpac, KPMG, Telstra and Allianz to create paid placement programs for bright and enterprising students. By coupling these placements with professional skills workshops on our campus, the program readies arts students for the workplace and demonstrates to employers the breadth of skills held by our graduates.
