The Graduate Diploma of Applied Finance (GradDipAppFin) offers an opportunity for finance industry professionals with prior studies in a business/finance field to study at an advanced level without necessarily taking the full Master of Applied Finance (MAppFin) program. The program is structured to allow students to develop specialised knowledge in a sharply focused field. The Graduate Diploma of Applied Finance is as rigorous as the Master of Applied Finance program. All units offered in the GradDipAppFin are units from the MAppFin program. Students in both programs are taught in the same classes and assessed at the same level, so there is no diminution of quality. Students who complete the GradDipAppFin may articulate to the MAppFin, or this degree may be awarded as a stand-alone qualification.
