The future is bright for finance graduates in Australia

Australia's sophisticated banking system was the envy of the international community during the global financial crisis, and now we lead the way in transforming how global markets operate and how credit is managed.

Today's financial professionals are as dynamic as the industry they work in, and in huge demand all over the world.

The finance industry is a global industry and goes way beyond handling money and balancing accounts. Studying finance at Griffith will help you understand how international events influence local economies, and how to apply sustainable solutions to real global issues and social concerns affecting business, government and the community.

More choice means more opportunity, so whether you want to be an accountant, executive, own your own business or an international consultant, this degree will make you a more compelling business partner. Commence in 2021 and choose your majors in 2022.
