Overview

About The Course

The Master of Economics at The University of Western Australia attracts people employed by the public service and private enterprise, as well as teachers already holding a Bachelor of Economics who seek to improve their professional qualifications through postgraduate studies. 

Topics covered include microeconomics, macroeconomics, international economics, financial economics, resource economics, public economics, quantitative economics, economic history and economic development.

UWA’s Economics discipline enjoys a large number of international visiting experts and guest lecturers. For more than two decades, the discipline has been a partner in the innovative PhD Conference in Economics and Business, which has hosted almost 600 students from major universities around the world. In addition, the discipline’s international connections are further enhanced by a significant flow of economists from other institutions who visit the Business School to present research results and to work with our staff and students. Recent visitors include Sir David Hendry from Oxford University, and the late Arnold Zellner from the University of Chicago. Further, the annual Shann Memorial Lecture invites a prominent economist to deliver a presentation in the area of economics and finance. All of these events generate considerable interest from the economics community and stimulate the discipline’s teaching and learning activities.

Career Pathways

Graduates can expect to find work in government agencies at the local, state and federal levels, as well as opportunities in the private sector including banks, consultancy companies, international agencies, insurance companies and the finance industry. 

As an economist, you could assess the implications of global economic trends on the Australian economy, regional economies or individual industries.

If you are interested in policy, you could contribute to the design of economic policy for institutions such as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and United Nations.
