What will I learn?

Become a leader in the fields of finance and economics.

This program aims to develop your analytical and technical skills to help you become a leading economist or financier in investment banking, capital markets, equity or venture capital, or the public sector.

You'll study topics like how policy can affect economic and social outcomes, the effect of the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) on economic theory and monetary policy, and common financial issues facing most companies. As the program is highly structured, you'll develop strong networks within your cohort.

At the end of your third year, you'll choose to major in either economics or finance, or to complete a more general pathway by undertaking electives, individual research topic, and a team project.

A key component of both the Economics and Finance majors is a supervised individual research thesis. A key component of the Professional Pathway is a supervised team industry project.
