In a dynamic and global market, it is becoming more relevant than ever to understand the fundamentals of human behaviour, and the complexities of societal issues and policies. 

An Economics graduate is armed with the knowledge and perspective that is required to help shape the future, and in some ways, change the world.  

A unique discipline, Economics allows you to understand how the world works as an intricate system and develops integral skills such as complex numeracy and problem solving, computing, time management and strong analytical skills.
