Basic Course Description
The Associate Degree of Finance has been designed to ensure that graduate capability has a strong connection between theory and the practical demands required of Corporate Finance professionals. This innovative approach to curriculum means courses enhance students’ general capabilities (problem-solving, communication, reflective practice) and specific knowledge capabilities that graduates require as they meet the current and future needs expected within the workplace and wider society. This compares favourably to traditional curriculum development which focuses on content input rather than output.
