Worldwide, tertiary institutions convey financial management information to students as future employees in financial departments. However, the question is whether the content of financial management modules at tertiary institutions is relevant in practice. This study focused on investigating the relevance of the content of the financial management module at a South African university by comparing it to national and international curricula as well as the perceptions of financial managers.

The results and recommendations can be used by tertiary institutions to adapt and update the content of their financial management modules. Relevant financial management modules may also increase the employability of students, and therefore it may be easier for businesses to find suitable and qualified employees with financial management knowledge.
