About

The Applied Economics program at Macquarie University has been carefully designed to provide students with state-of-the-art applied economics knowledge and skills that can be applied to these areas and many more.

Overview

Economic decision making by governments, businesses and individuals can significantly impact our lives, behaviour and wellbeing. 

Applied economic analysis has become an increasingly important field, requiring people who are skilled at analysing and interpreting economic data to inform decisions about everything from healthcare to financial policy, economic growth and development, natural resources and the environment, the organisation and structure of markets.

The  Applied Economics program at Macquarie University has two distinctive features: the importance placed on context and the application of theory to the solution of real world problems; and the opportunity for you to undertake interdisciplinary studies, which recognises that applied economists work in increasingly varied and diverse fields that cross traditional discipline boundaries.
