Quantitative Finance 計量金融學

QFIN

Short Description

The Quantitative Finance programme has been developed to meet the need for high-calibre individuals with exceptional quantitative and analytical skills in today’s globalised economy. The programme trains students to better understand new developments in the financial industry with specially designed courses in finance, economics, mathematics, statistics, and information technology. Programme graduates will have a solid command of financial investment instruments and will be well-qualified to work in investment banking, corporate and commercial banking, consulting, accounting and financial services, as well as in general management in financial and non-financial corporations.

To ensure that students obtain a well-rounded education, the programme emphasises experiential learning outside the classroom. Practical courses such as Fund Management and Asset Allocation and Banking and Finance Practicum are offered to provide a bridge between the classroom and the real world of banking and finance. A guest speaker series gives students ample opportunities to discuss current finance-related issues of interest with industry experts.

Students are also encouraged to participate in overseas exchanges and internships. The programme has established strong networks and partnerships with the financial industry, and the positive experience of taking on interns has given companies the confidence to offer students positions upon graduation.
