Career opportunities

Co-op Finance Honours graduates are highly sought after by leading employers, and a number of financial services firms offer our graduates positions within their Graduate Recruitment Program upon completion of their degree. Remuneration in the financial sector is very attractive.

Finance graduates can expect to have a very rewarding career in the financial services industry, with an extensive range of domestic and international employment opportunities available to them, such as:

  • Investment banking, merchant banking and corporate finance 
  • Investment management 
  • Stock broking (equity securities analysts)
  • Credit analyst (equities and debt) 
  • Retail and Wholesale Banking 
  • Financial management 
  • Treasury 
  • Securities trading (Foreign exchange, commodities, derivatives, debt and equity markets) 
  • Superannuation 
  • Custodian services 
  • Financial planning 
  • Consulting (Investment consulting or Management consulting) 
  • Insurance 
  • Government regulation

Finance and Banking is a stream that is really interesting and rewarding, but requires a lot of hard work and long hours. It's really important to do research and be sure it's the right field for you. I chose to study Finance and Banking, because I had an interest in the inner workings of financial markets that influence our day-to-day lives
