For some postgraduate courses, it is possible to arrange for intensive teaching over 5 weeks instead of the 14-week semester, subject to course scheduling and approval. During the initial appointment, a successful applicant is expected to contribute to the Faculty’s research profile by publishing in MaxRank [ABS-3; ABDC-A] finance journals.
