Professional Development in Banking and Finance - AFIN881

This unit prepares students for the transition to a career in banking and finance by developing professional and personal skills in the context of the banking and finance industry.
The unit assists students to develop their understanding of the professional and ethical opportunities and challenges facing finance professionals in an increasingly accountable social environment, and to then reflect on their aptitudes, networking and communication skills. Development of these two aspects better enables students to represent themselves as finance professionals.
Students work throughout the session using a team-based learning approach and are challenged to apply their learning to relevant case studies. Students will also be encouraged to access the Macquarie Career and Employment Service for assistance with resume writing, job search and job interview skills.
