About this course

Economics as a discipline is constantly evolving to help us understand how and why we allocated resources. It analyses important issues such as poverty, inflation, unemployment, taxes, pollution, crime, finance, inequality, international competition, consumer behaviour, world trade and economic growth.

This program provides the knowledge and skills required in the management of enterprises in both the public and private sectors. This involves both a broad-based multidisciplinary approach and the opportunity for focused, professional training in areas such as economics and finance.

You will complete core business, economics and finance courses and build on your classroom learning through a compulsory industry placement during the third year. You may also choose to study overseas.
