Program Design

Our Master of Science in Finance (MFin) program grew out from the integration of the MSc in Investment Management (MSc IM) and MSc in Financial Analysis (MSc FA) programs in 2019. Both programs have been widely recognized by finance professionals as premier academic programs.

The new program has been designed to provide rigorous training for students interested in professional careers in the finance industry. The curriculum is structured to meet the growing and specialized demands of the industry.

The program begins with a solid foundation of courses in corporate finance, investment analysis, quantitative and computing skills, fixed-income securities, and financial derivatives, which are the core subjects in the Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA), Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA), and Financial Risk Management (FRM) examinations curriculums.

The MFin program offers a wide range of elective courses to equip students with the cutting-edge finance knowledge and skills required for career advancement and continual professional development.

During the program, enrichment activities and luncheon talks are organized to provide students with platforms for networking with industry practitioners in Hong Kong. In addition, study tours can be arranged during the semester break. Study tours help students to understand the industry landscape, develop applied skills in industry and company analysis, and network with industry practitioners outside Hong Kong.
