Master Of Applied Finance


The Master of Applied Finance has been taught in Singapore for more than 22 years. We provide a rigorous education at the level required to fully meet the current and future needs of the banking and finance industry.  To succeed in today’s competitive and rapidly changing financial services environment, you need skills to help you analyse and anticipate issues across a range of different financial conditions. Macquarie University’s MAppFin gives you the skills you need to accelerate your career and expand your career prospects.

Our Programs are portable, which means if you’re travelling for business or pleasure, you’re able to attend classes in other cities.  We operate a four-term year for more flexibility around the demands of your busy life.
