Finance is about money and investments. People on their own and in partnerships, companies and other entities (including state and federal governments), have a common objective of profitable investment. What is a government-secured bond? What is a share? What are the reasons for investing in either...and when's the right time? These are some of the questions answered in the domain of finance.

You will study finance in depth, examining investment, financial markets, financial modelling and portfolio analysis. You will learn advanced statistical techniques for analysis and modelling, including the classical linear regression model, model diagnostics, univariate time series modelling and forecasting.

You’ll explore corporate finance, including financial strategies, security analysis and portfolio management. The course is both rigorous and practical, with an emphasis on applications and real world financial management. It will give you the theoretical knowledge and tools of business finance that are demanded by employers in all sections of the world economy.
