The future is bright for finance graduates in Australia

Australia's sophisticated banking system was the envy of the international community during the global credit crunch, and now we lead the way in transforming how global markets operate and how credit is managed.

Today's financial professionals are as dynamic as the industry they work in, and they're in huge demand all over the world.

The finance industry is a global industry and goes way beyond handling money and balancing accounts. Studying finance will help you understand how international events influence local economies.

Peta Wilton

While studying a double degree in finance and law at Griffith, Peta Wilton brandished her well-used passport on a regular basis. Thirty countries in three years complemented her tertiary education with a global outlook that has served her well. Many of her overseas ventures were associated with opportunities gained through the Griffith Honours College, internship programs and international exchange. Peta credits her overseas experience with giving her an edge in the employment market. She also had an advantage when the time came to look ahead to life after university. Her connection with Griffith's Careers and Employment Service led to an offer to work with KPMG's audit division on the Gold Coast.
