Risk Management Science 風險管理科學

RISK MGT SCI

Short Description

The programme, administered by the Department of Statistics, is intended for students seeking a career in financial and insurance institutions, with a strong interest in scientific methodologies. As an interdisciplinary subject, students enroled in this programme receive not only solid training in advanced mathematics and statistics, but also comprehensive exposure to finance, economics, accounting, and computer science. The core programme comprises pragmatic courses in numerical methods, portfolio management, financial economics, data structures and accounting principles, which equip students with essential techniques for the highly quantitative work in the financial industry.

To meet the increasing demand for talent in data science, the programme has launched a new study stream of risk analytics from the 2017-18 academic year onwards. The new study stream is tailored for students pursuing frontier knowledge in big data technologies in the financial industry. Students admitted to this stream may pursue Statistics as their second major subject, in order to strengthen their professional background in data science and data analytics.
