Why study this course

Economics deals with the production, distribution, consumption and management of goods and services. It explores how decisions made by producers, consumers, businesses and governments affect society. Skills developed in this program will enable students to undertake analytical and research tasks, to think abstractly and logically using mathematical and statistical methods, and to communicate complex concepts and ideas in simple, intuitive ways. The degree structure allows students to tailor a program to their needs and interests. They can either follow a broadly based program, including units from other discipline areas such as languages, philosophy, politics, or sociology, or focus on the more traditional areas such as econometrics, finance, or the social implications of economics.
