Program Overview

Postgraduate diplomas provide the opportunity for continuing professional development in the same area as an original degree. A postgraduate diploma can often lead to a masters degree.

Finance

Compound your opportunities with a rewarding career in finance. It's all about managing assets and investments to achieve the best return relative to risk, and generating wealth for individuals and businesses.

Why study Finance?

Studying Finance at Waikato University will prepare you for highly paid positions in the financial and business sectors anywhere in the world.

Finance is focused on managing money, investments, banking and credit, the share, bond and commodity markets, and financial analysis and decision making.

You'll gain a broad understanding of how the world's financial markets operate, and develop skills for financial analysis and decision-making.

For example, you could end up running an investment fund, working for the World Bank, or structuring the finance of a major project for a corporation.

Students will learn how to interpret financial data, forecast risk and returns, conduct shares and bond valuations, and understand mergers and acquisitions. And you'll be able to make sound investment decisions for your own personal financial security.

More advanced papers cover topics such as corporate finance, portfolio selection, capital markets, and the governance of financial institutions.

Practical assignments will prepare you for exactly what you'll encounter in your financial career. For example, students get to work on a funds simulation project using real data, and prepare a report on a publicly listed New Zealand or Australian company, while playing the role of a trainee investment analyst.
