The MFM prepares graduates and professionals from a diverse range of backgrounds for careers as finance professionals. Industry projects and guest speakers offer you a direct line of sight to the employment market and exposure to business contacts and local organisations.

Demand for both accounting and finance professionals in New Zealand continues to grow, creating considerable opportunities for employment. Financial management is a significant discipline practised by hundreds of thousands of professionals around the globe.

Gaining an MFM will position you to undertake analyst and decision-making roles in business, such as business analyst, investment analyst and management accountant. As a graduate, you will be able to:

  • Gain exemptions from the academic requirements from professional accounting bodies.
  • Work in consultancy firms, government organisations, not-for-profit or commercial enterprises.

Our MFM programme is ideal for recent graduates who are looking for a direct path into a business or finance role. The programme is also an excellent choice for professionals seeking to transition into a new role in business or finance. MFM participants are typically:

  • Graduates from any undergraduate discipline.
  • Professionals in entry to mid-level roles from organisations of any size and sector.

Multiple entry qualifications offer you a number of study options depending on your professional career goals.*
