Finance is important to everyone, whether they wish to work in the finance industry or simply manage effectively their own personal finances. An add-on major or sub-major in finance allows students to choose from a wide range of finance electives covering areas from superannuation to investment and risk management. Those completing a major in finance can access a range of finance careers, in particular with a variety of financial institutions. Business students pursuing a non-finance key program will also find a finance major provides a useful complement to their main qualification.
