Economic decision making by governments, businesses and individuals can significantly impact our lives, behaviour and wellbeing. Applied economic analysis is 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, and the organisation and structure of markets.
Distinct from other degrees of its kind, the Master of Applied Economics places significant importance on context and the application of theory to solving real-world problems; and provides an opportunity for you to undertake interdisciplinary studies, recognising that applied economists work in increasingly diverse fields that cross traditional discipline boundaries.
