Economics at ACU promotes the knowledge, and understanding of local business operation, consumer behaviour, economic policy, and national and global economic issues. The sequence encourages student interest in contemporary economic events and helps them to understand important issues such as unemployment, foreign debt, changes in the value of the dollar and the implication of these issues for consumers, businesses and the nation. Students also consider the policy options that are available to deal with these important issues in Australia and globally. The study of Economics provides the knowledge and skills for a variety of careers in both the private and public sectors, as well as providing a pathway for further study. Economics can lead to jobs in banking; share, finance or futures markets; business; insurance and superannuation; tourism; resource and environmental management; foreign affairs; the public service; journalism; statistical analysis and economic forecasting; economic policy analysis and development; and teaching in secondary and tertiary institutions, along with many other occupations.
