The Research School of Economics was created in 2010 by merging the former School of Economics, the Economics Program in the Research School of Social Sciences and the Centre for Applied Macroeconomic Analysis. Uniting these institutes has created an outstanding group of scholars with expertise across economic theory, econometrics and applied economic modeling. Our members contribute extensively to both research at the international level, and to economic policy debates within Australia and our region. In addition, our focus on a research-based education provides a unique and rewarding educational experience.
The Research School of Economics is a dynamic and exciting place for research and study. Whether you are a prospective student, a current student, an alumnus, a researcher or just a casual browser, we welcome you to our web site and we hope that these pages will provide you with the information you need about the work we do in the School.
