Economists advise governments and businesses, and provide forecasts on issues such as taxes, wages and prices, employment, unemployment, imports and exports, and interest and exchange rates. Their ability to see things on a larger scale and to communicate what they see in simple terms, combined with their strong analytical skills, means they are highly valued in global business.

This major has been designed to give you an understanding of how choices made by government, producers and consumers can impact on economic output, unemployment, inflation, poverty and wealth. You can develop valuable analytical skills and will use real case studies and examples through your learning.

You can also choose to expand your study into areas such as international trade, energy economics, environmental economics and public sector finance.

Economics is offered as part of the Bachelor of Commerce. You can enhance your studies with a secondary major or choose from a range of elective units to support your career goals.
