Careers in business and economics

Accounting. Accountants are needed in every industry to give sound advice on the financial position of a business. We offer a professionally accredited, globally recognised qualification that you can take anywhere.

Economics. Economists use data to understand the big questions that face people, organisations, and the world. We have been teaching Economics for more than 100 years and have produced some of Australia’s leading experts in the field.

Environmental and Resource Economics. Explore the use, conservation and sustainable management of natural resources. Investigate topics like water management, pollution and waste, climate change and biodiversity. This major draws on Tasmania’s status as a hub for the study of natural resource management to develop the environmental policymakers of the future.

Finance. Careers in finance suit analytical, inquisitive thinkers who want to work closely with the decision makers in an organisation. You will learn about how banking and financial institutions operate, along with financial planning and management, investment analysis, and corporate and international finance.

Management. All businesses, from large corporations to start-ups, need skilled managers to succeed. You will learn how to lead a modern business and manage people effectively in the workplace.
