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.
New research by University of Sydney Professor on Incentives, Altruism and Blood donation makes an impact
Research published in the internationally acclaimed journal Science last Friday May 24 by a team of economists – including School of Economics Professor Robert Slonim – raises the question, what if we were offered an economic reward or gift to donate? What effect might economic incentives have on donor numbers, blood supply and blood safety?
The Economics Society of Australia in conjunction with the School of Economics at the University of Sydney presents an ‘Economics Q&A’. This event will be in the style of the ABC's Q&A television program – but with economics-related questions and panellists.
