    Minerals and Energy Economics

    About

    Appreciating the business and economic framework in which the resources sector operates requires knowledge of economic, financial, managerial, legal, regulatory, political and social environments.

    Our teaching programs are offered in a flexible way to cater for fly-in-fly-out workers and busy mid-career resource sector professionals wanting to balance work and study. They are designed to help these professionals move into senior management or decision-making roles.

    Business-oriented students are immersed in the workings of the energy and mining sectors, while those with a technical background learn business tactics and terminology. Both groups graduate with a deeper understanding of the sector, and the tools to put new knowledge into action.

    This course will provide you with a thorough foundation in resource sector management and general business theories. You will complete coursework units on economic, financial and management issues.

    You can choose the Mineral Economics major or the Energy Economics major.

    Please refer to the handbook for additional course overview information.
