Get to know Jodie


“You don’t become a social innovator, you become socially innovative in what you do. It is all about coming up with new solutions to old problems, learning how to take the resources you’ve got, redirect them and make a positive impact, and create change.”

“It’s only four subjects, so it’s not a huge commitment in terms of time. The first year you discover human-centred design thinking and content that starts you on the journey of learning from best practice. The next subject is work-integrated learning. The third unit is entrepreneurship, learning about scalable start-ups.”

“If you’ve always approached something in a traditional way, doing a course like this might bend the way you think of things. I recommend it.”

Get to know Julie


“I’ve had more than 30 years in financial services, merchant banking and stockbroking, including 10 years in financial planning. I almost retired, and then a position came up to pioneer the new face of financial planning education at CQUniversity.”

“One of the key advantages of CQUniversity is that we have online coursework. We use the financial planning software that students would use when they’re in a financial planning organisation and we also hold Zoom video conferencing sessions.”

“The way we’ve packaged our courses is very flexible, with various pathways available. The curriculum ensures students are distinguished by their quality advice and the skills that they hold. I know that works, because many are now running their own practices and winning awards.”
