Studying Accounting in New Zealand (Auckland)

Hi Friends!

I am 32 years old guy from India and plan to study Master of Professional Accounting (MPA) from New Zealand. I am actually looking for a career change. I have more than 5 years of experience in Intellectual Property laws but no prior experience in accounting. Since I have a commerce background, I feel accounting will be good for me and moreover accountants are in demand around the world.

My questions to you all are:

1) What are career prospects in New Zealand after studying MPA considering I do not have prior experience in accounting.

2) I have read some reviews which indicated that Asians/Indians are not much preferred by the employers in NZ. Is that true?

I plan to come with my wife and 4 years old daughter. I will be spending lot of money on my studies and cost of living so I need to be sure what chances do I have after completing the course.

Any help on this is highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
