Phuong Vu_MFINC Grad_2019Master of Finance graduate

Senior Business Analyst at Techcom Securities

The Master of Finance program at the University of Otago equipped me with a range of skills and knowledge that has been very relevant to my graduate role as a business analyst in a top securities company in Vietnam.

The program gave me a strong underpinning in the role and operation of capital markets and the valuation of derivative securities. I use these skills in my job to analyze market requirements and determine final stock/derivative management functions in trading applications. The MFINC program at Otago also gave me opportunities to develop my presentation and quantitative skills. Being able to communicate effectively has been an invaluable tool. The research project taught me how to manage a large research task with a fixed time constraint. This is an important skill that I use frequently to efficiently manage monthly projects.

From my perspective, coming to New Zealand to study the Master of Finance is an amazing opportunity for any international student who is keen to experience education in a beautiful country and enjoy student life with friendly classmates and supportive lecturers. The MFINC is also an excellent qualification for students wishing to enter the highly competitive finance, banking and fintech sector.
