Back to the Master of Financial Economics page
The Master of Financial Economics is an elite, interdisciplinary degree preparing graduates for a career requiring advanced analytical skills and drawing on an advanced knowledge of finance and economics. The program not only teaches students how to apply well known models but also equips them with an understanding of the technical foundations of those models. These skills are highly marketable because they allow for the design and empirical testing of new financial instruments and models in new market environments.
The program requires the completion of 96 units:
- 48 units from completion of initial component; and
- 48 units from completion of concluding component.
Students who do not achieve a minimum of 70% weighted average mark will be transferred to the Graduate Diploma of Finance and Actuarial Statistics
It is possible to enrol in fewer than 24 units per semester but it will take you longer to finish your program and get your degree. If you are an international student you must always be enrolled full-time in 24 units each semester.
Remember you will need to enrol in courses for both First Semester and Second Semester. You will be able to change your enrolment in courses up until the end of Week 2 of each semester without penalty.
