As part of the Centre's commitment to its alumni we offer graduates of the MAppFin and GradDipAppFin the opportunity to attend elective units at a discounted price (on a non-award basis). You will recognise the importance of this in your on-going development particularly in the current economic climate. It may also count toward your CPD requirements. You can choose whether to complete the assessments. (Due to current taxation laws in China we are unable to offer this opportunity in Beijing.)
Graduates of the MAppFin who wish to undertake further study on an award basis can now enrol in our new Graduate Certificate of Applied Finance Post-MAppFin.
Please check our timetables for full detail of when and where our electives will run.
For further information and/or to register please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

LinkedIn groups and Facebook pages, along with an alumni newsletter, Finance Professionals seminars, networking events and student/alumni focus groups are all helping to strengthen these networks.

MAFC Alumni speak out – how I managed my successful career change
Renata Das graduated in the Macquarie University Master of Applied Finance in 2013. She is an Associate Advisor in a high net wealth team at JBWere.
"I come from a ‘sciencey’ family so I studied veterinary science at Melbourne University before working at my first job in Gippsland in a mixed vet practice in dairy cattle. I moved to England after a few years and did a variety of jobs including looking after the Calvary and Kings Troupe horses as well as the security, bomb and attack dogs for the British Army in Leicestershire. In 2008, I returned to Melbourne to locum but found it wasn’t the most rewarding career with little continuity or consistency with clients. It was part of the catalyst for me looking to finance. At the time I was also surrounded by finance people including my husband, and I had a number of friends who had made a career shift from vet science to finance. They told me about the Master of Applied Finance course at Macquarie Applied Finance Centre. I deliberated for six months, taking a trip to South America, before embarking on the MAFC course. Not having a finance background, the Master was a great way for me to get a solid backdrop of knowledge. My study helped me to get a job at JBWere as an analyst. It also enabled me to establish a very broad network within the industry. My classmates were a great source of support throughout the course and now, as an alumni network, they have been fantastic professionally, and socially. I am not originally from Sydney so it has been very valuable to establishing a network of connections here. It is often easy to get caught up being busy because you are trying to juggle work and study. The alumni network is a key strength of the course. I wish I had known this earlier in the piece as I would have focused on it sooner, and would have prioritised cultivating relationships in all classes."
