Study with us

Economics plays a part in every aspect of modern life, investigating the choices of consumers and corporations, groups and governments, networks and nations. It uses scientific methods to develop theoretical models of behaviour and tests intuition and empirical analysis of markets, institutions and public policy.


We offer an advanced, internationally-focused education that is both intellectually demanding and professionally relevant.
