Abstract

In recent decades the numbers of students majoring in economics at universities in Australia have been in decline. There has been a growing trend for students to turn away from economics to business related studies and a wider range of vocationally orientated courses. This paper outlines the strategy of enhanced student engagement employed by one university to reverse this trend and provides evidence from a range of sources to indicate the success of this strategy over the ten year period from 2001 to 2010.
