Everybody needs basic finance knowledge whether you’re making decisions involving borrowing money, making investments or assessing financing options. Study the finance minor sequence to learn the fundamentals of financial management and decision-making – including in times of uncertainty – and how to apply this expertise to sectors such as banking, consulting, planning, fund management, merchant banking, treasury or the share market.

Along the way, your experience will be enhanced by our small class sizes, allowing you to form close ties to your lecturers and tutors. After graduating, you’ll be prepared for financial management roles in private enterprise, government, the not-for-profit sector and trans-national corporations.
