Mineral and Energy Economics
Minerals and energy are of major importance to the world economy. The industry currently accounts for about three percent of Australia’s gross domestic product and around 15 percent of international trade.
Appreciating the business and economic framework in which the resources sector operates requires a suitable knowledge of economic, financial, management, legal, regulatory, political and social environments. Good resource sector managers must combine this with sound technical knowledge of exploration, extraction, and processing. This makes mineral economics a special and exciting field of study. Its interdisciplinary nature means that the overwhelming majority of study in the field takes place at postgraduate level.
Out postgraduate courses in mineral economics are designed to meet the needs of mid-career resource sector professionals who seek to move into more senior management or decision-making roles. They incorporate the mining expertise of the Western Australian School of Mines with the business leadership of the Curtin Business School to provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to successfully progress your career in the minerals industry.
