The Australia Finance Conference (AUSFIC) is an annual initiative run by a group of highly motivated students from a range of universities across New South Wales. AUSFIC seeks to bridge the gap between theoretical concepts taught in business school and industry-practice.
The conference seeks to provide an advanced insight into the business operations performed by key industry leaders, and their responses to trending economic issues. The day consists of senior executives from a wide array of finance firms participating in panel discussions and hosting workshops to provide this insight.
Through the profile of our speakers and the success of each past conference, the Australia Finance Conference has become the largest student-led initiative in Australia.
