ECONOMICS AND FINANCE

ABOUT ECONOMICS

& FINANCE

Economics and Finance are two highly esteemed fields of study offered at Deakin University. At its core, Economics focuses on the allocation of scarce resources; Finance further concentrates on the management of money. My proud team of directors (Gab, Mark, Matt) and I are extremely passionate regarding our respective academic disciplines. We share a determined and driven mindset to run events and initiatives that will provide value for Deakin Commerce students, aiming to boost their employability and overall Deakin experience.
