Professional Development in Banking and Finance - AFIN881

This unit prepares students for the transition to a career in banking and finance. Students will examine the banking and finance industry, analysing the various roles, career pathways and professional associations available to finance professionals. Students will gain a further appreciation of their personal strengths and the relevance to their job applications. Students will develop their resume and their interview skills. Focus will also be placed on networking and communication skills to present and represent themselves as finance professionals. This will include an appreciation of navigating through the politics of a modern large firm. In addition, students will develop their critical thinking skills. Much of the unit is ‘experiential’ working in groups in role-play settings including an assessment centre activity which is becoming an increasingly popular part of a firm’s recruitment process.
