MPT753 is an innovative experiential study of finance that focuses on sustainable investment.
The objective of this unit is to provide students with the opportunity to engage with business, within the work place and in doing so develop practical and analytical finance skills by participating as a team member on a real work related project.
The program begins with an intensive Campus component of study that introduces the
fundamental principles of finance and which develops the skill set necessary to undertake financial analysis of investments. Students then visit companies throughout regional Australia and in consultation with them assist in the identification of “green initiatives” that could assist in reducing the company’s carbon footprint. Students then return to the university and produce a consultancy styled report that analyses the financial viability of the investment opportunity. This report represents the major component of assessment for the unit.
Written Assignment 1 3000 words 50%, Group Presentation 10%, Log/Workbook/Reflection 30%, Group Work 10%, Hurdle requirement achieve a passing grade on each piece of assessment.
