In the School of Economics at the UNSW Business School, world-class research is our top priority. Under the Excellence in Research for Australia, ERA2015 ranking, we are the only Economics discipline in Australia to receive the top rating of 5 in all three main categories: Economic Theory, Applied Economics and Econometrics.
We regularly run important conferences and workshops in micro-theory, macro-economics, labour economics, development, economic history and econometrics.
There is also an active seminar series and visitor program. Many academics within the School play a prominent role in relevant Economic societies and also provide advice to government and business.
The School attracts considerable research funding from the Australian Research Council and other bodies.
We seek to maintain the highest international standards in research in Economics, to keep our status as the leading Economics School in Australia and to increase our international standing.
