Course Information

The Master of Applied Finance is a practical course designed for graduates already working in the finance sector, as well as those with a non-finance background who wish to move into the finance area.

The curriculum complements the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) program, with topics including risk management, capital markets and

international finance.

You’ll study under the guidance of experienced finance professionals, including professors who have served on the Commonwealth Government Superannuation Roundtable, acted as expert witnesses in court cases, and developed an Equity Preference Index in partnership with Colonial First State.
