Economics

Level: Postgraduate coursework

The Economics specialist program will give you the foundation to pursue a career as a professional economist in the private or public sector or to proceed to a PhD in Australia or overseas. The core units, with their strong focus on economic theory, data and events, will give you a strong competitive edge in the areas of economic analysis and policy work. The University offers one of the highest-rating and largest economics programs in the region, so it’s not surprising that many of our recent graduates have gone on to hold senior positions in Treasury, the Reserve Bank, other policy-related departments across the federal and state governments. Our graduates have also taken on leading roles in the corporate world and key positions in the not-for-profit sector; as well as in international financial agencies, markets and institutions. You can join them.
