    Why study this course?

    The Master of Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorist Financing is the only course of its kind offered at an Australian university. The course was developed with extensive industry consultation in the law enforcement, intelligence, regulatory, banking and finance sectors.

    CSU's Australian Graduate School of Policing and Security is ideally positioned to provide education in the anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing field, due to its extensive level of industry collaboration and engagement and the academic and professional profile of teaching staff.

    Depending on your existing qualifications and career aspirations, you can choose to complete a Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma or Master degree.

    Students who have successfully completed the Association of Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) certification examination will be awarded 8 points credit (equivalent to one standard CSU subject).

    The Master degree allows students to complete research or an intensive special studies project making a distinct contribution to their field of practice. It is designed for students in research, planning and policy roles in compliance, regulation, security, law enforcement and the banking and finance industry.

    Master graduates will be able to identify current issues in the sector and use research to develop best practice policy. They will be able to critically assess current policies and evaluate new and emerging trends. The course allows students to understand existing knowledge in the field and contribute to knowledge and practice in their discipline.
