Introduction The Master of Finance aims to provide you with the knowledge and skills required to analyse financial markets, taking into account regulatory principles, risk management and the use of specialised financial instruments. Emphasis will be placed on providing internationally applicable principles of finance, and on the use of financial instruments as tools for risk management across a wide variety of situations. The Master of Finance is an 18 month full-time (3 year part-time) course consisting of 12 units, offered by the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics. It is intended for graduates from a non-finance background, and is not recommended for those with a Finance major in their undergraduate degree. The course is full fee-paying, which means that you will be charged at the full fee-paying rate listed for each unit.
Career Outcomes This course offers participants from different academic backgrounds a qualification in finance. This will enable careers directly in banking and finance but also importantly contribute to the professional skills of the business, government and corporate world in dealing with the assessment and management of risk and resource distribution. The skills provided are increasingly important in decision making and appropriate management of scarce resources. The course particularly includes study in environmental finance.
