We teach a range of undergraduate, postgraduate and professional development courses. The largest of our programs is the Bachelor of Business degree, in which we offer both a major and sub-major in Finance.
Our postgraduate programs include doctoral and master degrees by research, as well as many coursework degrees. We offer a Master of Finance and a Master of Finance (Extention) in which students can specialise in a variety of areas of finance.

Through short courses we offer tailor-made in-house programs for companies and organisations.
