Course overview

The Bachelor of Business (Business Economics) focuses on teaching you the principles of economics and how to apply these principles to business situations.

Many key business decisions rely on a clear understanding of relevant economic concepts and principles, while business success depends heavily on timely and appropriate responses to changes in the economic environment in which a business operates. 

Business economics studies will help you develop as an effective manager in a rapidly changing and increasingly competitive world.
