    The University of New South Wales (UNSW) is a leading university. In 2013, UNSW achieved a QS Five Star Plus rating, one of only eight universities in the world to do so.

    The main UNSW campus is located on a 38-hectare site at Kensington, 6 kms from the Sydney Central Business District, surrounded by restaurants and cafès boasting an international array of delicacies, some of the world’s iconic beaches, and an exciting arts and events calendar.

    Located in a new state-of-art building at UNSW’s Kensington campus, the Australian School of Business (ASB) is a leader in business education in the Asian-Pacific region and one of the largest of its kind in the world with over 11,200 undergraduate, postgraduate and research students and 240 full time academics and researchers who are global leaders in their fields. The school of Banking and Finance contributes teaching resources to the Australian Graduate School of Management whose MBA program has for 7 consecutive years ranked in the top 50 of MBA programs worldwide.

    Banking and Finance is a school within the ASB. The School offers a diverse range of courses including Honours, Masters, and PhD programs in finance, is highly ranked both in research published in top tier journals and in teaching, and attracts some of the best students in Australia and abroad.

    Our faculty and research students have strong links with industry and global researchers and the school supports their many research activities by subscribing to an extensive set of major financial databases (list on our website). We have strong ties to many major international business schools and our visitors program is globally renowned, highlighted by the breadth of distinguished researchers who present in our weekly seminar and who are longer term visitors.
