What will I learn?

Macquarie has always considered our students to be co-creators in their learning. One of the most exciting developments in our new curriculum is around your ability to study two degrees at once.

In this double degree, you will be able to combine:

  • Bachelor of Applied Finance:  With the skills you'll gain in this course the ability to help organisations create value, invest wisely and control risk you'll find yourself in demand across the globe.
  • Bachelor of Information Technology: In this degree, you’ll acquire foundational skills in programming, data storage and modelling, networking and cyber security. You’ll develop broad and coherent knowledge and skills from an area of information technology – such as software design and construction, applied data modelling and analysis, or security problem detection and mitigation – and learn how to apply that knowledge to solve real-world problems. And you’ll learn how to relate your knowledge and skills in information technology to a broader societal context and make sound decisions regarding ethical and security concerns.
