One degree. Twice the expertise.

The Bachelor of Computing and Financial Management combines a deep understanding of Computer Science, using technology to solve real world problems, with a strong foundation in Finance, the science of managing money. The result is a dynamic curriculum that prepares students to make an impact in the ever-evolving financial services and beyond. Computing and Financial Management (CFM) graduates have the knowledge and experience to use technology to solve financial problems efficiently and effectively, making them exactly the kind of graduates the financial industry and other businesses reliant on information technology demand when they hire leaders. 

With this multidimensional degree, there are many possible avenues for launching a lucrative career: take your knowledge to the investment industry and pursue a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation; or expand your knowledge in a Master's program.

Whether you choose to focus on computer science, finance, or both, the next chapter in your academic and professional careers begins with CFM!
