Finance (MSc)

Course Description

To strengthen its position as a regional financial hub, Hong Kong must further develop and capitalize on its human capital. The recent financial crisis reflects a strong need for creative decision making drawn from diverse disciplines far beyond the codified knowledge currently taught in traditional finance programs. The capability to articulate innovative, multi-faceted strategies at top-tier institutional level characterizes sustainable corporate achievements in the globally integrated market. These leadership skills demand mastery of requisite financial theories and techniques, backed by superior quantitative skills and specialized knowledge in advanced finance.

The MSc programme in Finance at CUHK has been especially restructured to offer a dynamic, challenging curriculum with practical applications and relevance. The programme aims to develop students’ critical reasoning skills necessary for formulating and executing financial advisory, risk management, trading and quantitative analysis at all levels of an organization. Within our curriculum, the corporate finance stream will focus on economics, accounting, law, capital market and corporate financial management. The quantitative finance stream, drawing on applied mathematics, statistics and computer science, nurtures students’ quantitative capabilities to explore the underlying financial theories.

We welcome you on board to this uniquely rewarding and challenging academic experience.
