Get the skills and knowledge you need to enjoy a career anywhere in the world. Banking is an industry famous for offering a wide range of opportunities, great working conditions and a commitment to ongoing training and learning.
You’ll explore how the banker-customer relationship works and learn the skills you need to build a customer’s trust, create and manage loans, make strategic investment decisions and help businesses, governments and people with their finances to help them achieve their goals.
Banks and financial institutions work based on having debt built into their structure – and you’ll learn to understand the interest, credit and liquidity risk management issues that this can create. You’ll examine how the Australian banking system works and how it affects the local business environment, as well as international trade.
