Purpose

The purpose of this qualification is to develop applied competence in the mastering, interpretation, reflecting on and application of principles in the broader field of finance. Through the minor dissertation, a qualifying student shows evidence of scientific research, application of scientific research methodologies and an ability to reflect thereon in the holistic context of finance.


Admission Requirements

A potential student should possess a financially oriented Bachelor of Commerce Honours qualification on NQF LEVEL 8 with Financial Management at an NQF LEVEL 8. Alternatively, a student should possess any other four-year qualification on NQF LEVEL 8 with a strong Finance focus and/or have financial experience which is considered relevant and sufficient by the selection committee. Students without prior academic research experience may be required to complete a bridging programme in research methodology. For acceptance into the programme, an interview, preparatory study, an entrance course and examination may be required by the School of Accounting. Successful applicants must prepare a research proposal in consultation with a member of staff allocated to them. This proposal must be presented to a panel convened for this purpose. Once a decision has been made that the proposal has been accepted, the student will be allowed to proceed with the research component of the programme. The panel must specifically approve the field of study, the research topic, methodology and problem statement before the candidate may register for the minor dissertation.
