Want to explore a whole new world of thinking? Where finding the right questions is almost as important as finding answers to them; where logic, systematic development of argument and attention to evidence and data are more important than ever before; and where independent and creative approaches to ideas are highly valued? Our Master of Advanced Economics is suited to students with high-level economic understandings and quantitative skills, who want to move into cutting-edge research. This program offers a direct pathway into research-based degrees such as the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) or the Master of Philosophy (M.Phil) in Economics. You'll also be ready to move into jobs with private and public employers that ask for high level economic research skills. You might design policies to distribute water and natural resources between farmers, industry and consumers. You could prepare interest rate recommendations for central banks, evaluate development aid policies or advise on the impact of trade agreements on jobs, investment and wages. Perhaps you'll look into the structure of the health care system or the economic impact of carbon taxes.
