Course info


Open up your career options with a globally-recognised accountancy qualification that you can fit in with work or fast-track by studying full-time.

Ramp up your career with a recognised accounting degree

Make the move into accounting or get the certification you need to take the next step in your accountancy career.

Develop the ability to manage complex accounting and business issues, and the confidence to provide specialist expertise.

You’ll build an understanding of professional practice, ethics and procedures, and insight into the business landscape in New Zealand and internationally.

Fast-track or fit in with work

The MPA helps you fast-track your certification and is a globally-recognised qualification you can complete in 16–17 months full-time study.

The MPA is also ideal for working professionals wanting to add accountancy to their resume. You don’t need to have studied accounting before and evening courses mean you can study part time while working.

International recognition

The MPA gives you the academic requirements for certification from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, and CPA Australia.


As well as roles in accountancy firms, your MPA can set you up for a career in banking and finance, law, government, not-for-profits and companies large and small. You’ll be on track to move into roles including chief financial officer, general manager finance and finance manager.

Employer Support

The capability boost you get from doing an MPA means your employer may be willing to pay some or all of your costs.
