The College of Business is launching a new qualification in accountancy and finance. The Master of Professional Accountancy and Finance combines two popular disciplines and will commence in February 2013.
It is a joint initiative by the School of Accountancy and School of Economics and Finance for graduates, and meets the requirements of the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants.
Programme director Fawzi Lazwad says the qualification will equip students with the skills they need for leadership in this sector and enable those already working in the field to up-skill.
“We are committed to offering opportunities to those working in the accountancy and finance areas to enhance their knowledge base and leap up the career ladder.
“It also offers scope for graduates looking for a career change to become accountants and finance services professionals.
“The only requirement is a bachelor’s degree in any discipline and enthusiasm to succeed in these dynamic and challenging professions.”
The MPAF is the only professional master’s degree in New Zealand where these two popular disciplines have been combined, offering flexibility for those with an undergraduate finance major to up-skill in accountancy and vice-versa.
It is available by block course at the Wellington campus or via distance learning.
