What you will learn

Your study will focus on finance, but help you put this specialty into the context of other business disciplines.

This qualification has a focus on real-world learning - you can utilise our relationships with industry to draw on your own work experience. You will also learn the application of techniques in environments like our Trading Room - the only one of its kind in a New Zealand university.

You will be taught by some of New Zealand's leading finance practitioners and will learn how to apply high-level in-depth research in the workplace.

The Master of Finance will also help develop your oral and written communication skills to the level expected of senior business leaders.

Career pathways

  • earnings and employment rates increase with the level of qualification completed
  • five years after completion, the median earnings of young master's graduates are 15% higher than for those with a bachelor's degree.
