Finance

To build the qualifications necessary for a rewarding career in accounting, finance, banking, investment, management, policy or analysis, a Master of Finance could be an essential addition. Universities and colleges in Australia offer Master of Finance programs to graduates from related bachelor's degree programs in Australia or around the world. Building a multicultural student base is a valuable undertaking for schools in Australia, and it also benefits students with expanded networking opportunities, thus international students are also encouraged to apply to Master of Finance programs.

Applied Finance, Islamic Finance, Financial Management, Accounting and Investment Analysis are just some of the possible areas of specialization available to Master of Finance students in Australia. Lasting approximately one to two years when undertaken on a full time basis, Master of Finance programs in Australia can also be taken part time, online or from abroad in a distance learning format. A master's thesis or final dissertation is usually the capstone of a Master of Finance program at a university in Australia, where students learn how to design and undertake a research-driven, analytical project independently.
