This course is designed for people with no or limited prior knowledge in finance who wish to change career direction or enhance their career options.
You will be introduced to managerial finance and economics, and move on to more advanced, practical studies in corporate finance, security analysis, portfolio management, trading and risk management. You will graduate with an understanding of the principles and practice of finance, and have substantial conceptual and applied finance knowledge, and be prepared for careers such as a financial adviser, investment banker, or financial or equity analyst.
You will have access to a fully equipped Securities Dealing Room on campus, the first of its kind in Queensland. Live financial data, via the Bloomberg and Datastream networks, will allow you to experience the financial markets in real time, without the risks involved in real transactions.
The course also extends your knowledge if you are a graduate from a professional association such as FINSIA and may assist with preparation for the Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA) program.
The Master of Business (Applied Finance) is fully compliant under ASIC's RG146 training standard, which allows graduates to give financial product advice to retail clients
