Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00123M

Aspire to be a leader in business, policy or research? The Bachelor of Economics (Advanced) is a uniquely structured and specialised degree for students who want to stand out in their field. With your advanced degree you might specialise in maths and statistics and become an econometrician, working in logistics and modelling transport infrastructure. You could write pioneering policy around education, taxation or mental health. Perhaps you will use behavioural economics to encourage people to recycle, or research the potential impacts of a universal basic income.


  • This advanced degree emphasises research and high-level analytical skills. You will: interact with and learn from eminent researchers, notable economists from abroad, and high-ranking economists practising in the private and public sector
  • have the opportunity to partner with an academic mentor who will support and encourage your intellectual development
  • access three unique courses specifically designed for high-achieving students
  • benefit from small-group work, special activities and events with distinguished visitors. Note: You must maintain a GPA of 5.0 or you will be required to transfer to the Bachelor of Economics. Conversely, if you initially enrol in the Bachelor of Economics you may be eligible to transfer into the advanced degree after one, two or three semesters if you achieve a high enough GPA. The program contains compulsory courses designed to give you a highly developed understanding of economics and advanced research skills. The compulsory courses include the three program-specific advanced courses: Quantitative Methods for Economic Analysis I, Intermediate Microeconomics II and Advanced Economic Analysis III. They cover the central areas of economics and complement the standard core courses in microeconomics (how consumers and firms behave and how markets work), macroeconomics (the growth and stability of the whole economic system) and econometrics (the statistical tools for economic data analysis). The compulsory courses make up approximately half of the degree. Like the conventional Bachelor of Economics, the remaining components of the program consist of optional or elective courses chosen from a large pool of courses from Economics or other areas. With the Advanced degree, you can also obtain majors in Financial Economics, Politics and International Relations, Public Policy, or International Economic Development.
