Finance is about money and investments. People on their own, people in partnerships, companies and other entities (including state and federal governments), have a common objective of profitable investment.
What is a government-secured bond? What is a share? What are the reasons for investing in either and when is the right time? These are some of the questions answered in the domain of finance.
You will undertake a foundation year that covers all core disciplines of business, giving you a solid understanding of issues facing organisations today.
From your second year, you will begin your major in Finance. The degree has an emphasis on practical applications and real-world financial management.
You will also undertake a final-year capstone subject that lets you apply everything you have learned in collaboration with students from other disciplines.
Plus, you have the option of applying for an internship to gain valuable experience whilst receiving credit towards your degree.
What you will study
