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 will 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 will 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.
