Bachelor of Economics and Bachelor of Information Technology

The Bachelor of Economics will provide you with a sound understanding of today’s complex economic environment and the skills to design economic systems that promote welfare, fairness and sustainability. You’ll learn about how modern economies operate, trade and grow; the role of prices and markets in allocating scarce resources; and the sorts of policy interventions that can be introduced when economic outcomes are less than optimal.

In the Bachelor of Information Technology, you’ll acquire foundational skills in programming, data storage and modelling, networking and cybersecurity. You’ll develop broad and coherent knowledge and skills from an area of information technology – such as software design and construction, applied data modelling and analysis, or security problem detection and mitigation – and learn how to apply that knowledge to solve real-world problems. And you’ll learn how to relate your knowledge and skills in information technology to a broader societal context, and make sound decisions regarding ethical and security concerns.

Job Opportunity Potential

Studying hard and getting great marks doesn’t guarantee you a job. Most employers expect applicants to be skilled and experienced in the workplace. Working while you study is an excellent way to build your employability skills and gain life experience.

Why does it?
Employers appreciate any full-time, casual, or part-time experience like working in hospitality or retail, on a reception desk, or even in construction.  They value this kind of experience because it shows that you can be responsible and professional. Working while you study builds professional skills that are essential for professional roles:

  • Time management
  • Teamwork
  • Customer service
  • Attention to detail
  • Working independently
  • Showing initiative
  • Communication (verbal and written)

Working on and off-campus
CareerHub is Macquarie’s jobs portal, connecting you with external organizations that offer part-time, casual, full-time employment opportunities as well as internships, cadetships, and volunteer experience.

Finding an on-campus job is often ideal as it centralizes both study and work, but opportunities on-campus are limited. Opportunities can be found here:

  • Campus Life manages the university's Sport and Aquatic Centre, Food and Shopping, Children's Services, Event Planning, and more.
  • For other administrative, professional, and academic-related opportunities within departments and faculties, visit the university's employment page.

Here is a list of some of our favorite job search websites for opportunities across multiple industries.
