Economics is a small but active discipline group at the UWA Business School
Staff within the discipline group are committed teachers and at the same time heavily involved in research.
This includes the Economics discussion papers series. In addition, they have published books and have papers each year they produce Economics Discussion Papers, Books, chapters and journal articles.
Economics is also active in outreach activities including the PhD Conference in Economics and Business, the Shann and Bateman Memorial public lectures, and has professional contacts and interactions with economists around the world.
There is substantial student interest in the courses offered by Economics. These include undergraduate majors, the Master of Economics, the Graduate Diploma in Economics and the PhD. There are currently 16 PhD students writing on topics including economic modelling, financial economics, history of economic thought, macroeconomics, development economics and many more.
