Study banking

Develop a deep understanding of how banks function
Banks play a critical role in our globalised economy, providing financial services to business and individuals, and facilitating sustainable economic growth.

A qualification in banking from the University of Sydney Business School includes a detailed examination of the workings of banks (and related deposit-taking financial intermediaries) in the context of the banking system in particular, and the financial system generally.

You will learn how to analyse the activities, roles, and regulation of commercial and investment banks. As technological and financial innovation rapidly evolves, graduates with specialised knowledge in this area are highly sought after in the banking industry.
