About

Finance is all about achieving the best return relative to risk, and helping organisations add value for their shareholders. Studying Finance at the University of Waikato will prepare you for highly paid positions in the financial and business sectors anywhere in the world.

Overview

 Finance at the University of Waikato is focused on money management, investments, banking and credit, the share, bond and commodity markets, and financial analysis and decision making. You'll learn about corporate finance, portfolio selection, capital markets, corporate finance, personal financial planning, and the governance of public and private organisations.

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.
