Department of Economics

Department of Economics

Economists don’t just speak the language of numbers; they apply it to society’s challenges to help create a better world.

We help the business world and governments make better decisions by forecasting market trends and advising on how to solve economic issues. Economics is how we turn scarce resources into something valuable, and distribute them efficiently with the goal of improving the living conditions of people around the world.

Our core focus is bringing organisations and communities together, enabling you to develop a broad understanding of how economics affects people’s lives.

Through broad interdisciplinary projects and research, the department hopes to make a positive global contribution and help society understand the world we live in through an economic lens.
