Applied Finance Lecturers

Applied Finance Lecturers

Our applied finance lecturers are our greatest asset. Each of our lecturers has extensive relevant industry experience as well as appropriate academic credentials. They bring real world experiences to the classroom and demonstrate how finance is applied in day-to-day business.

Industry advisors, who are also experienced finance practitioners and experts, support our faculty. These advisors are members of program-specific groups who provide current, relevant, and valuable advice.

Together our faculty and industry advisory groups ensure that our graduate applied finance programs remain the finance industry’s premier educational programs, meeting the needs of professionals operating in Australasian and global markets.
