Three major areas emphasized by the Department are corporate finance, investment and portfolio management, and financial markets and institutions. Corporate finance analyzes the investment and financing decisions of firms, including mergers and acquisitions. Investment and portfolio management deals with the problems of asset pricing, portfolio design and risk management by individuals and investment firms, such as unit trusts. The financial markets and institutions area presents the unifying framework and environment in which financial activities take place. Key features of the major financial instruments and institutions are explained and analyzed. In addition to the above, the Department also offers courses in international financial management, speculative markets, and other topics of interest to the Asia-Pacific region. The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree in Finance suitably equips a student for pursuit of a career in banking, financial analysis, and investment firms. The Bachelor of Science (BSc) program in Quantitative Finance provides students with cutting-edge knowledge in financial tools and quantitative methods.
In 2008-2009, the Department of Finance prepared a Cash Management Policy to safeguard the management of Consolidated Fund cash balances and ensure accurate and timely receipt of information affecting the Province of Nova Scotia Consolidated Fund cash flows. As well, a Banking Service Policy was also been developed to facilitate centralized control of all bank account, banking services, and negotiations of banking contracts associated with the Province of Nova Scotia Consolidated Fund, as defined in the Provincial Finance Act. These policies now provide guidance to departments through Management Manual 200 and will help ensure the Department is able to fulfill its mandate with regards to cash management and banking.

The BSc Accounting and Finance programme is widely regarded as being at the forefront of international teaching in its field. It is known for pioneering innovative approaches to the study of the modern practice of financial management for organisations in both the private and public sector. The aim of the programme is to give you an understanding of accounting and finance that will be useful throughout your career. It offers a rewarding yet challenging learning experience that is consistent with studying in one of the world’s leading social science institutions. We require students to master some techniques, and to understand their practical application, but we do not offer vocational training. We expect students to engage with both theory and practice, and to develop a critical understanding of how accounting and finance operate in a range of different institutional settings. The BSc Accounting and Finance is an interdepartmental programme, housed in the Department of Accounting. Faculty from the Departments of Accounting and of Finance include many internationally renowned leaders in academic research, professional accountancy and financial markets. Teachers will encourage you to develop your analytical and critical skills to enable you to understand the subject from a variety of perspectives, including the international dimension. Real world insights are reinforced by case studies, and examples drawn from the current corporate, professional and regulatory world.
The CGC will continue to support both the Queensland Government and QUT contributors in the development of a National Standard Chart of Accounts and support its smooth introduction from July 2010. This will include supporting government and sector consultation on the draft National Standard Chart of Accounts. The CGC will also continue to advocate the use of the SCOA to facilitate financial reporting to minimise administrative duplication and compliance costs, and of the data dictionary to improve the reliability and consistency of financial data available to inform decision making. The Department of Communities will lead reforms to maximise the linkages between financial and performance reporting. These strategies are expected to improve the reliability and usefulness of information available to support better evaluation and planning of services and programs. 39

T he Commonwealth of Puerto Rico’s financial condition has been a matter of concern for sev- eral years, and efforts to devise a strat- egy that would return the territory to fiscal solvency and protect bondhold- ers have been underway for months. As the U.S. Treasury Department, Speaker of the House, and Chair of the Senate Finance Committee have proposed options to address Puerto Rico’s debt crisis, the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) is focused on ensuring that any federal support plan for the island is specific to Puerto Rico and does not include elements that would undermine the authority of mainland state and local governments to effectively govern and finance their pension plans.

college credit. Many of the chairs in this study had experience working with the Huskins program and understand the costs and benefits that the program brings to the department. Those chairs that work with the Huskins program have reported mixed results. Mary says that the new articulation agreement she has with a local university will enable interested students to move from high school through the community college and into a four-year program seamlessly. Participants in the Huskins program may complete a bachelor’s degree in less than four years after high school. Mark views the program as a tool for “increasing sales,” or bringing in new students, for his institution. At both institutions, scheduling for the Huskins program falls not on a chair, but on someone else within the institution. At MCC the person in charge of coordination in this program works under the auspices of the chair of Public Service programs; at RCC an administrator coordinates Huskins activities. The different methods of coordination for this program result in different views of the program among the chairs involved. At MCC, the chair who supervises the Huskins coordinator applauds the program and values the quality of high school students the program brings to the institution. While most chairs at RCC also value the benefits of the program, one chair at RCC was not as optimistic about the program. This chair notes that she is not involved in the scheduling of these courses or the locations at which they are taught and indicates that hardships over which she has no control are created for faculty members in her department. The chairs who discussed the Huskins program in their interviews recognize the utility and benefits of the program to the institution but also acknowledge that the program can be a challenge.
