Selected major: Data Analytics

Having data is one thing, understanding its meaning and value is quite another.

It’s the data analysts who provide the insights and intelligence that are used to drive business.

The data analyst can tell you about customer behaviour; benchmarks for measuring performance; how your business could be more efficient; how different scenarios may play out.

In short, data analysts draw evidence from data to spot and explain trends, and help businesses make the best strategic decisions.

Selected major: Financial Planning

This Major is not currently available

This professionally accredited* Financial Planning major prepares you to help clients manage their money well and plan for a secure financial future. 

While machines can create financial reports, it takes a person with strong technical and life skills – in ethics, communication, cultural sensitivity and emotional intelligence – to build the trusted relationships essential for success as a financial planner.

In this major, you'll cover behavioural bias, investment, taxation, insurance, financial risk, retirement and estate planning.

You'll receive a solid grounding in relevant legislation, codes of conduct and ethical issues, how to prepare a Statement of Advice, and how to use industry software. 

This major includes strong industry connections. You'll learn directly from practising Financial Planning professionals, as they are regular guest lecturers, and you'll attend industry events to start building your networks. 

The Bachelor of Business (in a single, double or professional degree) with a major in Financial Planning is accredited by FASEA*, ensuring you'll learn the skills needed to enter the financial planning industry with confidence. 

*Undergraduate courses are awaiting confirmation of reaccreditation from Financial Advisors Standards (FAS), formally FASEA – 1 Feb 2022

The Bachelor of Business Information Systems/Bachelor of Business combines specialist studies in business information systems with a business degree.
