Overview

Bachelor of Business (Financial Planning)

A career in financial planning is rewarding, fulfilling, and challenging.

You will help individuals, firms and companies manage their financial affairs and meet their financial goals daily.

In this course at QUT, you will first introduce foundational concepts, theories and practices in finance, taxation law and superannuation and retirement planning. 

You will further build your knowledge and skills in insurance, risk, management and estate planning, financial services and law and personal financial planning. 

Led by industry experts who are experienced in real-world skills and theories, you will participate in practical projects, including completing tax returns and analysing complex capital budgeting problems, superannuation funds and financial regulation issues. 

Your final two units will focus on advanced investment, client relationship management, and financial plan construction.

Graduates who complete the financial planning major will meet the academic requirements to seek membership in the Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA).
