Course content


This course is aimed at students with a strong interest in financial trading in integrated financial markets. It addresses the needs of students who are looking to pursue a career in global financial trading and related fields, such as financial analysis.

You will focus on trading and the behaviour of global financial markets through the use of an on-campus simulated Trading Floor, which provides practical exposure and hands-on experience in the art of trading. This course explores the principles of equity trading and evaluation, bond trading and financial derivatives. In addition, you will gain career-ready business skills sought after by employers, including teamwork, communication, presentation and leadership skills.


By successfully completing this course you will not only gain a master's qualification, but also be prepared for the Financial Information Associate Certificate, which is recognised by the world’s leading financial information companies. You will be taught by industry-trained academics and practitioners, including some who are chartered accountants, chartered financial analysts and financial risk managers.
