About The Course
The Master of Applied Finance from The University of Western Australia is a practical course designed both 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. Candidates preparing for the CFA qualification are encouraged to enrol in the Master of Applied Finance as a preparatory course.
You will 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.
Applied Finance graduates are in demand across a range of industries such as consulting, corporate finance, financial planning, financial risk management, funds management, insurance, and investment banking.
