Course Details

Aspire to be a leader in business, policy or research?

The Bachelor of Economics (Advanced) is a uniquely structured and specialised degree for students who want to stand out in their field.

What will you do?

Our advanced degree emphasises research and high-level analytical skills. You will:

  • interact with and learn from eminent researchers, notable economists from abroad, and high-ranking economists practising in the private and public sector
  • have the opportunity to partner with an academic mentor who’ll support and encourage your intellectual development
  • access three unique courses specifically designed for high-achieving students
  • benefit from small-group work, special activities and events with distinguished visitors.

Where could it take you?

You might specialise in maths and statistics and become an econometrician, working in logistics and modelling transport infrastructure. You could write pioneering policy around education, taxation or mental health. Perhaps you’ll use behavioural economics to encourage people to recycle, or research the potential impacts of a universal basic income.

Completing the Bachelor of Economics (Advanced) will enhance graduates' career opportunities by demonstrating to employers:

  • high academic merit standards (both to enter and retain their place)
  • advanced training in economic analysis and research.

Areas of Specialisation

Students in the Advanced degree can obtain a major in Financial Economics, Politics and International Relations, Public Policy, or International Economic Development. It is also possible to study the Bachelor of Economics (Advanced) concurrently with other degrees.

If students do not want to formally major in any of the areas above, however, a minor in Financial Services is available. Students also have the flexibility to specialise in another area of economics (e.g. environmental economics). And they can enhance that specialisation by taking courses with the same focus, but from other disciplines (e.g. environmental studies).
