"To me, economics was the perfect supplement to my career aspirations in finance. Economics has taught me how to quantify and justify decisions. In my opinion, there are a lot of opportunities to take advantage of studying economics. Like me, students will be exposed to a range of activities. Ranging from internships at sought after firms, going on exchange to renowned universities, or even undertaking meaningful research, studying economics is full of opportunity."

"The Masters of Applied Economics has made me competitive in the global job market. It was taught with real-world applications and has enabled me to apply learnings to my current job which has an emphasis on international collaborations. I have been working as a survey manager and have worked on several different data collections since graduating. I currently specialise in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Survey, which involves travelling out to remote indigenous communities to conduct testing of the questions and oversee systems development.
