Kate Green reflects on how studying economics can expand your horizons and unlock unique opportunities far beyond what you find in the curriculum.

Expand your horizons with a dual degree

Training in economics teaches you to analyse and make decisions—skills that are in demand in most professions—which is why economics is one of the most popular combinations in dual degrees.

Improve your employment prospects and broaden your skills and knowledge by studying two programs at the same time.

As the world around you changes, new and fascinating career opportunities are created every day, and job roles increasingly combine multiple disciplines. A dual program, also called a double degree, will equip you for this evolving job market.

Students undertaking a dual program are advised to follow the recommended study plan for their program. View Programs and Courses for more information.
