Financial Planning is the design of specific financial outcomes that meet a client's unique needs and objectives, given their financial resources and risk profile. Its broad approach is to fulfil clients' total needs, incorporating investment planning, taxation, social services planning, retirement planning, risk planning and estate planning. You will undertake a foundation year that covers all core disciplines of business, giving you a solid understanding of issues facing organisations today. From your second year, you will begin your Financial Planning major covering subjects from investment analysis, risk and insurance, to advanced financial planning. You will also undertake a final-year capstone subject that lets you apply everything you have learned in collaboration with students from other disciplines. Plus, you have the option of applying for an internship to gain valuable experience whilst receiving credit towards your degree. Career opportunities include fund manager, financial planner, wealth advisor and insurance broker.
