Business School



Welcome to the Economics discipline at the UWA Business School.

We are a community of active researchers, publishing in leading international journals, and undertaking postgraduate and undergraduate teaching. Our faculty research in the core Economic areas (Micro, Macro and Econometrics) with strengths in International Economics, Macroeconomics, Resource Economics, Economic Growth and Development, and Asian Economics. We also engage extensively with the media and government and business leaders.

Economics also has a large group of PhD students and hosts regular visits from acclaimed international academic economists. We hold bi-weekly seminar programs; host the PhD Conference in Economics and Business, the Shann and Bateman Memorial public lectures, and several major conferences.

In the area of teaching, we offer a single major and double major in Economics at the undergraduate level. Our Economics Honours course is one of UWA’s premier programs and has produced some of the best graduates in Australia, many of whom have gone on to build successful careers as professional economists in institutes such as the Reserve Bank of Australia and the Treasury. Our postgraduate courses include the Master of Economics and PhD in Economics.

Economics was a founding discipline of UWA when it was established in 1911. Today, the Economics discipline is one of four disciplines within the internationally accredited UWA Business School.
