The Bachelor of Business with Business Economics specialization will lead you to understand how businesses manage people, capital and resources, as well as deal with external forces such as competition and government policy in order to best achieve the firm’s goals. Business economists conduct research, collect and analyse data, monitor economic trends, develop forecasts and can play a leading role in advising senior management on strategic decisions.
Business economics provides you with the ability to analyse and reason and communicate results concisely.
