It is a good entry point for those wanting increased involvement in the financial services sector and especially useful for those considering a change of career from other industries such as Engineering.

Testimonial from graduate who had engineering background

Tomas Vasquez - Associate Analyst, Small/Mid Caps, ABN AMRO Australia

"Macquarie’s Master of Applied Finance Program has certainly helped my career progression. I decided to change my career from Engineer to Finance, and I was looking for a postgraduate qualification which could assist me to find a job in the finance sector. With lectures based on industry experience, the course materials were practical and directly relevant to the real market place. In addition, it was a great networking opportunity for me to meet Australian students who were already working in Australian finance sector."
