Bachelor of Finance in Asset Management and Private Banking 金融學學士(資產管理及私人銀行)

BFin(AMPB)

Short Description

The Bachelor of Finance in Asset Management and Private Banking (BFin(AMPB)) programme is the first undergraduate programme of its kind in Hong Kong and Asia. The Programme aims to prepare students to enter the rapidly growing fields of asset management and private wealth management in Hong Kong and Asia Pacific, or in banking and finance generally.

During the first two years, students complete introductory courses in accounting, economics, mathematics, statistics, corporate finance, and investments and portfolio analysis. In subsequent years, students take more specified and industry related courses including equities valuation, private equity, venture capital and hedge funds, understanding of financial statements and doing financial analysis, lending and credit in private wealth and corporate banks, financial regulations and compliance, ESG in finance, institutional consulting and family office.

The practical and career-oriented curriculum of the BFin(AMPB) programme provides our students with the necessary knowledge and skills for careers in asset management, private wealth management and banking & finance. Practical-oriented courses are taught by teachers with extensive experience in the finance industry., including a final-year capstone course requiring students to apply their knowledge to real world situations by conducting analysis and managing a portfolio based on investment guidelines and risk policies of institutional or high net-worth clients.

BFin(AMPB) students will be given opportunities to apply for different enrichment activities specific to their studies, including overseas exchange study and industry-sponsored internships in either Year 2 or 3. Frequent networking activities with market practitioners are available, e.g.  coffee chats and round table talks meeting seasoned industry practitioners in small groups, career seminars by professional bodies, and thematic visits to AMPB firms.
