Further information:

UWA's Economics discipline enjoys a large number of international visiting experts and guest lecturers. For more than two decades, the discipline has been a partner in the innovative PhD Conference in Economics and Business, which has hosted almost 600 students from major universities around the world. In addition, the discipline's international connections are further enhanced by a significant flow of economists from other institutions who visit the Business School to present research results and to work with staff and students. Further, the annual Shann Memorial Lecture invites a prominent economist to deliver a presentation in the area of economics and finance. All of these events generate considerable interest from the economics community and stimulate the discipline's teaching and learning activities.
