Industry-relevant learning

Advance your financial skills and boost your career with Victoria’s postgraduate programme in Applied Finance.

Offered by the School of Economics and Finance and created in consultation with accrediting professional bodies, the programme is oriented towards applied knowledge so you gain the crucial industry skills you need to hit the ground running.

Finance from all angles

Explore the workings of capital markets in New Zealand and around the world. Gain a deeper understanding of valuation, financing, investment management and banking. Improve your computer skills and perfect the art of financial modelling.

Learn the principles, practice and operations of financial markets, and the management of corporate, government and financial institutions. You'll gain the practical and operational skills you need to succeed in the international world of volatile financial markets.

Study while you work

Study full-time or part-time. Most classes will be after normal working hours or on block format so you can study part-time and continue working if you wish.

A global focus

Study with students and lecturers from all over the world. You'll benefit from the experience of a global network of alumni, industry experts and respected academics.

Community

Postgraduate study at Victoria will help you build valuable relationships and networks with peers, university staff and future colleagues. And the Postgraduate Students' Association can give you information and provides a voice for you on campus.

The School of Economics and Finance hosts a range of events to enhance your learning experience. These include a Seminar Series, discipline-based workshops, conferences and research symposia. You also have the opportunity to learn from distinguished scholars through the Stephen Turnovsky Visiting Fellowships.

Qualification family structure

  • Master of Applied Finance
  • Postgraduate Diploma in Financial Analysis
  • Postgraduate Diploma in Treasury Management
  • Postgraduate Certificate in Financial Markets Analysis

Choose the qualification that suits your career goals, time constraints and financial situation.If you start with the Certificate or a Diploma, you can apply to transfer to the Master’s degree at a later stage. Both your academic performance and your professional work experience will be taken into account when assessing your application.

Or if you enrol in the Master's but can't complete it, for whatever reason, you may have enough points to be awarded a Certificate or a Diploma.

What you'll study

All the qualifications have a common theme—the principles, practice and operations of financial markets, and the management of corporate, government and financial institutions.

The aim is to equip you with the knowledge and practical skills you need to succeed in the fast-paced and changeable world of financial markets.

Depending on your choice of qualification you'll complete either three courses for the Certificate or six courses for the diplomas. If you choose to study for the Master's you'll complete nine courses.

Find out more about the courses you can study.

How you'll learn

You'll learn through weekly lectures for some courses, and in block format for others. The block courses are designed to give you the flexibility to continue working while you study.

Attending all sessions is compulsory. The block-format courses are held over two sessions, with each block consisting of two and a half days. Before the block you are responsible for completing all readings and assignments as well as attending tutorials.

As well as formal lectures, computer lab sessions, running simulations and taking tests, you'll have networking opportunities through visiting speakers, group discussions and workshops.

Workload

If you are studying full-time, you can expect a workload of 40–45 hours a week for much of the year. Part-time students doing two courses per trimester will need to do around 24–28 hours of work a week. Make sure you take this into account if you are working full-time.

You can estimate your workload by adding up the number of points you'll be doing. One point is roughly equal to 10–12 hours work.

Duration

The Applied Finance courses require about 12–14 hours study per week each. Many students' demanding professional lives mean they choose to study part-time and only take one or two courses at a time.

The Master’s degree will take you a minimum 16 months to complete when studying full-time. Part-time may take a maximum of six years.

You have a minimum of two trimesters (eight months) and a maximum of four years for each of the two postgraduate diplomas.

For the postgraduate certificate, your minimum completion time is one trimester and your maximum is two years. Courses generally run in a cycle of 12 months, depending on the topic, and the foundation courses are generally taught in first trimester each year.

Careers

Work as a professional in major financial markets, commercial and investment banks, fund management, energy providers, other large private companies and government departments—both in New Zealand and overseas.

If you work in any of the following areas, or hope to do so, then the Applied Finance programme is for you:

  • investment bankers
  • corporate financial planners

The internships, which are with London-based organisations, take place during the summer period.
