“I am finding it challenging yet rewarding. The program is quite intensive, but I know I am getting closer to my goal”

Shanel Sun
Master of Finance (Data Management)

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 UTas MFin 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 MFin 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.

CLO1Explain the context and integrate advanced theoretical and technical finance knowledge including research and recent developments.
CLO2Present, justify and defend, orally and in writing, financial information and decisions in complex collaborative contexts involving specialist and non-specialist audiences.
CLO3Apply advanced theoretical and technical finance knowledge to critically analyse financial data to solve sophisticated financial problems in complex contexts.Prepare and execute a research-based project, capstone experience or piece of scholarship.
CLO4Exercise judgement, under minimal guidance, to apply financial solutions using ethical, social, regulatory, economic, sustainability and global perspectives
CLO5Reflect on and evaluate: * the nature and implications of assumptions and value judgements in analysis, * interactions with other disciplines, * historical and contemporary events affecting the finance profession, * responsibilities of their role in both the finance profession and in the broader society

Career outcomes

The MFin will instill 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 planning, financial institutions, insurance, superannuation funds, not-for-profit organisations, government and local authorities as well as individuals.
