Bachelor of Business (Economics)

Queensland University of Technology (QUT)

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00213J

Economics is more than just the study of numbers, money, and the economy. It’s a way of thinking and analysing how the world works. As an economist, you will be working to find solutions to real-world issues such as unemployment, inflation, interest rates, competition, business strategy, the sustainable use of resources and the impact of decisions made by governments. Students choose this degree because of the range of study options available to them. Whether your career aspirations include higher studies in economics or employment in public or private sector organizations, you can tailor your degree to suit your interests. If you’ve ever wondered why the Reserve Bank of Australia puts up interest rates, or what is the best way to make the earth a cooler place by fighting climate change, or if you’ve asked whether Facebook makes the economy more productive, you should consider economics as a major. As an economist in the making, your learning will extend outside of the classroom. Early in the degree, you will participate in practical experiences that offer a real-world context for understanding economic theory. You will learn from industry professionals and develop the tools and techniques you need to analyse business problems and find solutions. As well as having the opportunity to undertake a work-integrated learning unit, students can enrol in an international study tour in development economics, apply economic principles and models to develop solutions, and learn about useful tools such as cost-benefit analysis.
