Why study the Bachelor of Advanced Finance and Economics (Honours)?

This program is an advanced 4 year degree in economics and finance for students who are proficient in mathematics and have a keen interest in both areas.

At the end of year 3 students will decide if they wish to take a more professional, employment oriented pathway or a dedicated research pathway (ie major) in either economics or finance.

To undertake a major in economics, students must have obtained a GPA of 5.5 for Part A of the program, and a grade of 5 in the following courses: ECON2050, ECON3010, ECON3020 and ECON3350; or satisfy the executive dean that the student is suitably qualified to undertake the major.

To undertake a major in finance, students must have obtained a GPA of 5.5 for Part A of the program, and a grade of 5 in each of the following courses: FINM2411, FINM3411 and FINM3412; or satisfy the executive dean that the student is suitably qualified to undertake the major.

Students applying to change program and/or applying for credit on the basis of previous studies should seek advice from the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law (bel@uq.edu.au). Please note that due to the pre-requisite requirements for compulsory courses, it may take longer than anticipated for students with credit to complete the program requirements.
