The Australia Finance Conference (AUSFIC) is an annual initiative for highly motivated students from a range of universities across Sydney. AUSFIC seeks to bridge the gap between theoretical concepts taught in business school and their real-world application, and is the first of its kind to do so through the conference platform. Supported by leading industry firms such as Macquarie Group and CA ANZ, and the three major university Business schools (USYD, UNSW, and UTS), we are a value-focused society dedicated to providing students key insight into the financial landscape.
One of the most difficult issues for students is directly applying the theory learnt at university into workplace practice. Our events aim to mitigate this problem by exposing students to the trends and tools disrupting the industry, and the top executives driving this disruption. We believe that it is through networking and discussion with learned industry experts – ranging from CEOs of investment banks to successful start-up entrepreneurs – that will equip our students with the transferable skills propelling them to achieve their personal best, and easily match the demands of the industry.
