First established in 1994, the discipline currently enjoys a reputation as one of the preeminent providers of finance education in the Asia Pacific region for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. We are also a leading research discipline with a large PhD program. Recently we were ranked ninth in the World by QS rankings.

These career paths include work in financial markets, funds management, investment and retail banking, financial management, corporate treasury, financial regulation and academia. Our graduates are sought after by blue chip companies and some of the premier investment banks, fund managers and securities brokers in the world.
Discipline members actively engage with industry, both in Australia and internationally. Consequently, course instruction includes a mix of theory and current practice. The discipline's leadership in teaching and research, and our ties with the local and international business community will ensure that the time you invest in your education is a sound investment in your future." - Graham Partington
