Bachelor of Economics

How do we use resources most efficiently? How do airlines set the price of a plane ticket? And what’s the best way to measure sustainable business practices?

Economics is the science of decision-making. You’ll explore the principles our economy is built on, and learn how they impact the way we spend, save, work and live as part of society.

What you'll learn

How to think analytically, solve problems logically, and make informed decisions in a commercial context. You’ll use data to make better decisions, study the impact of individual economic choices, and explore the way local, national and global economies function.

This degree could be for you if...

You’re a logical thinker who likes putting academic theory into action. You’ll study a broad range of areas – including people, behaviour, development, politics and business and how decisions and policies affect individuals, organisations and governments.
