How can we measure the size of Australia’s illegal cannabis market – and the billions in taxes that might flow from legalising it? Policymakers will have to think carefully about pricing, taxation and providing discounts for buying in bulk. Else legalisation may not deliver a substantial tax windfall after all.

Millie says the reason for her applying for this program was to build her commercial acumen by deepening her knowledge of global business and the role that culture plays in 📈 business and economics.

These experiences are invaluable in professional and social contexts, such as awareness and adaptability to diverse needs as a means to facilitate effective communication."

The study tour program comprises of academic and cultural activities while providing students with an overview of business and economics in an international context 🌎
