Money is the lifeblood of all organisations and economies. Because the availability of money is limited, funds must be raised economically and effectively and invested as successfully and profitably as possible while minimising the risk involved. This applies to households, communities, businesses, investment funds, and governments. Finance is the discipline that is concerned with the sourcing, allocation and investment of funds. Thus, good financial skills and finance professionals are fundamental to the growth and success of any organisation and country.

Finance and Tax offers two undergraduate degrees; the BBusSc Finance with Accounting, designed for students who would like to qualify as Chartered Accountants with finance as a related discipline, and the BBusSc in Finance, aimed at students with a strong interest in finance and economics.
