Curtin Business School (CBS)
Energy Economics: This builds on a growing platform of research which straddles both Economics and Finance as well as CGSB (and thus DMEE). It also ties in with the interests in oil and gas, renewal energy. The range of issues facing this arena ranging from world market analysis, security of supply and climate change.
Sustainable tourism is the multi-disciplinary study of how tourism can be developed and managed in a sensitive way which minimises the negative impacts on the environment and host communities. Tourism development in Australia and throughout the Asia-Pacific region relies on natural and cultural resources as the primary tourism attractions. The challenge is to develop policies and practices which enable profitable but not exploitative development and management of these resources.
Foreign Direct Investment and Multinational Enterprises:This area of research focuses on the theoretical and practical insights of various aspects of foreign direct investment (FDI) and multinational enterprises (MNEs) into and from emerging Asian countries, and the impact of FDI and MNEs on host-country firms, society, and environment.
Luxury Branding: This growing area is supported through CBS cluster and sees important strengths in international capacity particularly in Asia where there are existing excellent relationships with industry and academia.
