Are you passionate about helping others realise their financial goals?

The accelerated online Master of Financial Planning is specifically designed to launch and advance the career of the modern financial advisor. From superannuation and retirement planning, to investments and tax advice – our program equips you with the knowledge and skills to manage and grow the wealth of individuals and small businesses alike. The accelerated online Master of Financial Planning prepares the modern financial advisor to navigate the increasingly regulated financial industry, so you will graduate with a degree accredited under the new standards set out by the Financial Adviser Standards and Ethics Authority (FASEA).

With degrees built on sustainable financial practices, Griffith was also the first university nationally to meet the high standards of the Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA).

Covering a wide and varied range of courses, you’ll build a foundation in financial planning that spans business and corporate law, taxation, wealth management, behavioural finance, estate planning, financial market analysis, risk management, and much more.

Our interactive online learning environment will engage you with staff and students who are just as passionate about the financial industry as you are. This degree has been accredited by the Financial Planning Education Council.

Each course runs for six weeks, allowing you to focus on one topic at a time, and with 6 intakes a year, you can virtually start whenever you are ready.
