Overview

Bachelor of Business - Economics

The Bachelor of Business (Economics) is a versatile degree where you will learn how the world of business works and gain the skills to interpret global information and events.

A versatile major, the Bachelor of Business (Economics) trains you in understanding how the economy operates at both micro and macro levels.

You will study the business environment, the role of competition, and the connections between different sectors of the economy.  

You will learn about the effects the world economy has on New Zealand businesses and people. 

This includes what the government can do to foster healthy businesses and advance innovation, but also about the effects of excessive government interventions.

In this major, you can specialize in several areas including international trade and finance, resource and environmental economics, financial economics, managerial economics, and public policy.

Massey’s lecturers and professors are actively researching both nationally and internationally, bringing the most relevant developments in business theory and practice to the classroom.

The Bachelor of Business will give you the leadership, communication, and critical thinking skills that will make you a sought-after employee. 

 

Year Three

In your final year, you will progress to advanced studies in your chosen major. 

You will be able to do an internship course this year, as well as an advanced course in your major topic. 

This brings your business knowledge, communication and teamwork, critical thinking skills, and understanding of ethics together in a capstone course.
