Finance has evolved as a major field of business practiced by either business executives in the management of company funds or by executives in the financial sector who may work in financial markets, financial institutions, information technology or consultancy firms that provide financial advice and services to businesses and individuals. The subjects in the Finance major provide graduates with professional skills, knowledge and understanding necessary for a career in finance and the financial sector.
Students with weighted average mark above 70 in finance subjects are eligible for admission to the Finance strand in the Bachelor of Business (Honours).
