Face-to-Face Teaching: Generally 20 hours
Timetable: Detailed timetable for classes are on the Centre’s web site www.mafc.mq.edu.au
Students who wish to contact any of the teaching staff may do so through:

- Individual consultation with the lecturer by email in the first instance, if necessary.
REQUIRED AND RECOMMENDED TEXTS AND/OR MATERIALS
- A reading pack will be made available prior to commencement of the unit.
- In addition to selected readings, the pack will contain case study materials and questions for discussion related to each case study.
- These readings and lecture materials are examinable.
Lecture Notes: Available in printed form and electronically via iLearn.
- Students are advised to work systematically through a suggested problem set. These problems will not be collected but they will help you prepare for the exams. Answers to the problems will be posted to iLearn.
- Note: the problem set should not be interpreted as a ‘practice exam’. Preparation for the exam will require review of all course materials and lecture notes.
