What will I study?


The Finance major covers three key areas: capital markets and financial institutions; investments and financial planning; and corporate finance.

Learn how individuals, businesses and institutions raise funds to implement investment strategies. And gain knowledge as to how they allocate these funds to a variety of investment opportunities.

Your major structure

In your first and second year are comprised mostly of core subjects  that are prerequisites for your major, plus breadth and elective subjects.

Most of your major subjects will be in your final year, along with the remainder of your electives and breadth subjects.

Breadth studies

Breadth is a unique feature of the Melbourne Model. It gives you the chance to explore subjects outside of commerce, developing new perspectives and learning to collaborate with others who have different strengths and interests — just as you will in your future career.

Some of our students use breadth to explore creative interests or topics they have always been curious about. Others used breadth to improve their career prospects by complementing their major with a language, communication skills or business expertise.
