Finance - B2034

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.

With a finance degree from a world-renowned business school, you’ll be prepared for a career in just about any industry, anywhere in the world. A role in finance could see you making cashflow decisions, managing assets and risk, working with capital markets and stock portfolios, or producing forecasts and budgets for financial institutions.

If you have completed several measures of English proficiency over a period of time, the highest valid measure will be accepted.

The course develops through the four themes of foundation commerce knowledge, specialist discipline knowledge, capstone experience, and elective study.

Partner with another course

Double degree courses allow you to study towards two different degrees at the same time, and graduate with two separate qualifications. 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.
