About this course

The Master of Finance is an 18 month full-time or part-time equivalent course offered by the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics. The course is full fee-paying, which means that you will be charged at the full fee-paying rate listed for each unit.

The Master of Finance is grounded in a philosophy based on two major premises: to facilitate the acquisition of life-long financial knowledge and skills through sharing and building on the diverse experiences of all stakeholders within the course and to foster empowerment and personal responsibility by encouraging students to challenge the conventional paradigms in finance.

Students are engaged through using teaching materials that link the lectures and workshops to local, national and global case studies. This approach will facilitate self-actualisation and the notion 'doing and thinking are one'; it will also equip our students with the theories, concepts, and knowledge in finance that are necessary to deal with the rapid changes in finance worldwide by covering a variety of perspectives, including, but not restricted to, the theoretical, empirical, behavioural, ethical, economic, environmental and statistical/mathematical.
