School of Economics
With a truly real-world emphasis on research and education programs, our innovative approach to teaching is linked directly to the employability of our students.
The School of Economics and Finance is proud to be home to a number of academics who are world-class scholars in their areas of research. Research-based teaching is our mission and we place great care in delivering updated and state-of-the art curricula to our students.
We offer undergraduate courses in finance and economics with specialised options that include applied and quantitative economics, a Bachelor of Property Economics as well as a set of elective units in finance. At the postgraduate level, we offer Honours, Masters and PhD research programs, as well as the Master of Business (Applied Finance) program. We work together with other Schools to offer interdisciplinary courses in International Business and Financial Planning.
Our economics and finance courses are designed to incorporate theory and practical experiences to ensure our graduates are challenged and industry ready.
Our research excellence is enhanced by our strong links with leading academic, government and public sector partners.
