Boosting outcomes for businesses and enhancing student learning

We foster mutually beneficial partnerships with industry, government and the community that power innovation and drive success.


AMP has partnered with Griffith University to create an online Master of Financial Planning degree that combines theoretical coursework with practical, real-life experience as a financial adviser. The professional development initiative with Griffith aligns to AMP’s commitment to raise standards in the financial advice industry and improve its perception as a profession.

AMP’s Adviser Academy is also integrated into the program, and is separately delivered to career changers and graduates as a structured pathway to a professional financial advice career in the AMP network.

Social housing and housing affordability

The Department is collaborating with the National Affordable Housing Consortium and the Sustainable Living Infrastructure Consortium on a number of projects relating to social housing and housing affordability. The collaboration between NAHC and the Department of AFE has been formalised through a Memorandum of Understanding.

In September 2017 the Department—in collaboration with the NAHC and SLIC—hosted the 2017 Australian Social and Affordable Housing Symposium.
