The new Graduate Certificate in Finance equips students with the knowledge to make sound financial decisions at all business levels in both domestic and global contexts.

This program aims to develop knowledge on three building blocks of finance, such as corporate finance, portfolio management and international finance. In addition to the building blocks, students can choose an elective course in the areas of Financial Technology, Management, Accounting, Wealth Management and Analytics to broaden their foundational knowledge.

The program offers fundamental financial knowledge that is relevant for business decision making at the executive level where students will have opportunities to solve real-world problems in finance,” Luis Goncalves-Pinto, the Program Director said.

Delivered 100% online in the hexamester accelerated calendar, with six intakes of eight week blocks each year, the course enables students to gain an introduction to core concepts and principles associated with the financial management of organisations.
