About the Course

The Bachelor of Economics (Honours) is highly desirable for students seeking employment as professional economists, for students who want to do postgraduate work in economics or for students who simply want to signal relatively high academic achievement. If a student wishes to work as a professional economist in industry, finance or the public service, employers may value a level of specialisation that is not provided by a three-year pass degree. Many of those who have graduated with Honours in Economics from the University of Sydney now have top jobs in government institutions like the Departments of Treasury and Finance, the Reserve Bank and the Australian Bureau of Statistics or in private banks or other financial institutions. Many others are academic economists, while some have won fame in the political arena.
