The Master of Financial Planning program offered by Griffith University includes coverage of the practice and theory of financial planning including financial markets, investments, risk management, taxation, retirement and estate planning, and behavioural finance. Those with qualifications and experience in the field can also enter the program and progress to the advanced level study.
Griffith University offers a range of flexible delivery modes including on-campus and online. Find out more about our Financial Planning programs.
Career opportunities exist in the financial services industry (namely, banks, funds management and financial planning companies) in various roles including client services officers, business development, client administration officers and trainee para-planners.
Employment opportunities in financial planning are increasing this is because of succession planning issues (with many planners reaching retirement age), an increase in the level of education requirements for planners and an increase in the population of individuals that require financial advice.
