Arm yourself with economic insight

Economics is everywhere: in the lives of individuals, in the news, in government policy and in the decision-making of big and small organisations.

This one-year program interrogates economic questions and covers key principles to help you navigate the complexities of a globalised world. No prior economics knowledge is required for entry.
