Griffith’s innovative approach to the delivery of first-class university programs has taken another step forward with the launch of a new accelerated online Master of Finance.
The latest offering to be rolled out as part of Griffith’s suite of digital education options offers people working in the finance industry the chance to study while continuing to work.
The new 100% online postgraduate program gives students unprecedented flexibility in their education options, while connecting them with some of the industry’s leading thinkers.

The program is structured for six intakes during the calendar year, allowing those enrolled to manage their studies on their terms and to start their studies when and where they want to.
“The accelerated learning mode means students can now complete a fast-tracked Master of Finance in two and a half years. They will do so while engaging with a community of like-minded professionals in an interactive learning environment,” Associate Professor Mark Brimble (left), Discipline Head of Finance and Financial Planning, Griffith Business School, said.
“And while the modern-day student wants an educational structure that grants this kind of flexibility, they also want further education that leads to new, influential careers or which builds on the career path they have taken in an industry.”
The strong industry links that Griffith Business School has developed in the financial sector have been incorporated into this new program. Students will be learning from some of the country’s leading thinkers in finance.
These include lecturers and researchers who are active and influential in the finance industry, people who are highly valued and much sought-after.
“Their insights and extensive corporate knowledge will make this online program a very practical, relevant experience for students who will graduate with new skills that can be put to immediate use in financial decision-making processes,” Dr Brimble said.
Student eligibility for the new program is not limited to previous study, and previous professional experience will also be taken into account and may lead to credits towards the degree.
A further option is also available in the form of the new accelerated online Graduate Certificate in Finance, which is also being rolled out as part of the launch.
Students can gain a Graduate Certificate in Finance by completing four initial courses during an eight-month period and then continue on to the remaining 12 courses of the Master of Finance.
The Master of Finance program has also been meticulously designed to support students, who are likely to take on CFA Program exam after graduation to complement their industry credentials.
