Finance - B2034

Finance

Bachelor degree

Few things impact our society more than the exchange of money. The way we earn, spend, save, borrow and invest it – both as individuals and as a collective – is reflected in everything from interest rates to property prices.

With a Bachelor of Finance you’ll build a strong understanding of how our financial system works, and develop the skills you need to manage money well – for big corporations, small businesses and governments.

And because a required subject in one course can count as an elective in the other, our double degrees take up to two years less than if you studied for the two degrees separately.
