About

The Master of Finance at Griffith University offers comprehensive preparation for those wishing to pursue or advance their career in the finance and investments industry. 

Overview

In the Master of Finance at Griffith University you will gain technical competencies and analytical skills and learn how to apply financial theory and quantitative techniques to make effective financial and investment decisions. 

You will build a solid foundation in finance and gain an in-depth understanding of investment principles with a strong appreciation of ethical and professional standards focusing on the curriculum of CFA Level II and III and CAIA examinations. 

You will develop the skills to critically analyse issues in the investment profession relating to stock markets, fixed-income and alternative instruments, derivatives, and portfolio or wealth management, preparing you to take on new challenges in the increasingly globalised and competitive financial sector.

The Master of Finance has two different entry points depending on your previous studies:

  • Standard pathway: If you are interested in moving into the field and do not have a background in finance, you will complete the standard pathway (2 years) which includes a compulsory foundation component.
  • Advanced standing pathway: If you have a prior finance degree you will follow the advanced standing pathway (1.5 years) and skip the foundation course component. You will focus on core finance courses and advanced electives. High-performing students may have the opportunity to undertake a major research project in place of advanced electives. This option can serve as a pathway to higher research degrees.

Career opportunities

You will be prepared for employment in mutual funds, superannuation funds, banks, insurance companies, treasury and stockbroking. 

Other careers might include foreign exchange dealers, futures and options traders, portfolio managers, risk analysts and financial advisers.
