Completing a Master of Finance has provided me with a diverse range of tools, over and above those developed in undergrad, that I consistently use in a working environment.
The MFinc prepared me to critically evaluate financial and economic questions, while developing the technical skills required to perform financial valuations and undertake critical data analysis.
The research project improved my writing and independent work skills. It also afforded me the opportunity to spend time exploring a finance topic of interest and produce a thesis by a deadline. Both of these are critical in the current flexible working environment where unsupervised workflows, deadlines and written reports are an important final deliverable. The MFinc from Otago will prepare you stand out in the increasingly competitive finance sector.
