About this course

Apply economic thinking to complex global challenges

Career pathways

This program offers a direct pathway into research-based degrees such as the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or the Master of Philosophy (M.Phil) in Economics. You'll also be ready to move into jobs with private and public employers that ask for high level economic research skills.

You might design policies to distribute water and natural resources between farmers, industry and consumers. You could prepare interest rate recommendations for central banks, evaluate development aid policies or advise on the impact of trade agreements on jobs, investment and wages. Perhaps you'll look into the structure of the health care system or the economic impact of carbon taxes.

Note: There is only one commencement intake each year, in February, for this degree. Typically, classes start in late February.
