A finance major from Massey University lets you structure a personal study programme incorporating a wide range of disciplines to help develop your numeracy, logic and analytical skills.
Finance is all about the systems, institutions and instruments involved in the transfer of funds between individuals, businesses and governments. This includes vital, short-run decisions such as cash management and credit policy, which affect the survival of an organisation, as well as long-term decisions such as investment in plant and equipment, fund-raising, and mergers and takeovers.
You’ll graduate from the Bachelor of Business (Finance) with superior decision-making skills so you can be one step ahead of the pack within the field of business finance.
You’ll learn about the components of the financial system and how it impacts on decisions in an organisation by studying financial institutions and markets as well as business finance. You’ll get a sound theoretical foundation, on which you can build practical applications.
