FINA

Short Description

The BBA Finance (FINA) program emphasizes on analytical and critical thinking skills in decision making as well as qualitative and quantitative analyses in finance. Students will learn how to identify valuable opportunities, how to evaluate alternatives, how to make sound and good financial decisions, how to assess and price risks, and how to manage money. Important topics covered in the program include corporate finance, corporate valuation, investment analysis and portfolio management, derivative securities, financial markets and institutions, financial accounting, and international finance.

FINA curriculum helps students gain proficiency in working with industry-standard databases such as the Bloomberg Professional Services for real-time data, news and analytics. FINA students will acquire well-rounded business knowledge by taking courses in both finance and other business disciplines including accounting, business statistics, economics, information systems, marketing, operations management and organization behavior.

Our program is comprehensive and offers many elective courses for students to develop specialties in specific areas of finance. Our graduates are well prepared for professional qualifications such as CFA, CFP, FRM and PRM. Meanwhile, the program is also flexible enough to accommodate students’ interest in choosing other disciplines for second major and minor studies, for example, accounting, economics, marketing, entrepreneurship, actuarial mathematics, big data technology, information technology, environmental science, and biotechnology.

There are ample enrichment opportunities such as Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), Finance Seminar Series, business competitions, company visits, personal development training and internships, which prepare our students to be well-rounded finance professionals. In addition, many of our students take part in the International Exchange Program and benefit greatly from the experience.

Our graduates typically pursue careers in investment banking, retail banking, fund management, trading, private equity, insurance, accountancy, compliance, risk management and management consulting.

Remarks:

The Year 1 curricula of JS5312 FINA and JS5300 B&M are identical. JS5312 allows students who have a special interest in BBA FINA to directly enter the major. Those admitted to JS5300 may apply to enter FINA or other business majors via the major selection exercises held at the end of the first three semesters. Students interested in FINA should include either or both JS5312 and JS5300 in their program choices.

On top of the direct intake quota, at least half of the FINA program seats are reserved for students admitted into JS5300 Business and Management to enter the program via the major selection exercise.

Selected Band A and Band B applicants who show talents and potentials for business study will be invited to engagement activities or interviews organized by HKUST Business School in May-June 2018.
