The Master of Business Administration (International) [MBA(Intl)] educates business managers who can operate effectively in an international context and with the capabilities for dealing with all aspects of an organisation’s management. The Master of International Finance [MIF] provides students with the specialised skills in investments, valuation, portfolio construction, and risk management, required in today’s increasingly complex and evolving field of international finance, and its application within the broader world of international business.
The combined course develops a set of knowledge and skills which meets the demand in the workplace for competent managers in large organisations who have an excellent knowledge of finance. The course also enables students to undertake postgraduate coursework study across a greater range of units and disciplines than is possible in a single course, thereby enhancing knowledge and understanding of international business.
Depending on the particular units completed in the MBA(Intl) / MIF, students may gain professional accreditation by the Financial Services Institute of Australasia (FINSIA). The completion of the core units, plus Enterprise Risk Management, will qualify students to apply for membership of the Finance and Treasury Association.
Eligibility for membership to professional bodies is subject to work experience and the entry requirements of those professional bodies.
