Due to the ongoing response to COVID-19, online study may replace some or all of your on-campus classes. We'll be sure to keep you informed of any changes.

The UTas GCFin 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.

Our GCFin will engage students 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.

In doing so, our GCFin will instil in students financial knowledge and skills that they can utilise throughout their future professional careers in the broader finance community both at the personal and institutional level including; financial planners, financial institutions, insurance companies, superannuation funds, not-for-profit organisations, government and local authorities as well as individuals.

CLO1Explain and apply theoretical and technical finance knowledge to a range of local and global business contexts.
CLO2Present orally and in writing, financial information and decisions.
CLO3Apply theoretical and technical finance knowledge to critically analyse financial data to solve rudimentary financial problems in straightforward contexts.
