There is a strong emphasis on both theoretical developments and applied issues. As economic policy and economic events play a central role in shaping the broad framework of work and society at every level, Economics at Sydney is involved in research and policy analysis in many crucial policy areas and issues.

Our graduates go on to specialist positions in Treasury, the Reserve Bank, other policy departments across the Commonwealth and state governments, international agencies, the financial markets and financial institutions, to head office roles in the corporate world, and to key positions in the not-for-profit sector.
