School of Economics Development Plan

School of Economics Development Plan

The School of Economics Development Fund was established to support South Australia's transformation from a traditional manufacturing centre to a new economy based on emerging technologies and imaginative market solutions. 

Giving to the Endowment will ensure the School competes favourably with the best 100 universities globally and meets the core needs of students and researchers. 

An economics education at the University of Adelaide teaches the ability to think analytically, with breadth, and to apply theoretical principles to a rapidly changing reality.Head of School, Gareth Myles

The Development Plan comprises three Endowment Funds: Student and Teaching Support; Research Support; and Economics Evolution. Please expand details below for further information about these funds.

  • Evolution Fund

    Faculty of Professions

    The School of Economics needs to be at the forefront of policy analysis and the provision of policy advice to state and federal governments. To achieve this critical impact, funding is required to appoint an internationally renowned economist to become the director and leader of an economic policy research centre. 

    Details can be reviewed in the Development Plan.
