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 banking in Hong Kong and Asia Pacific.

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 courses related to the asset management and private banking sectors including equity valuation, investment management, lending and credit, financial regulations and compliance.

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 and private banking. Practical-oriented courses taught by teachers with solid experience in AMPB industry will be offered to BFin(AMPB) students, including a final-year capstone course requiring students to apply their knowledge to real world situations by conducting analyses 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. mentorship programme, coffee chat and round table talks, career seminars by professional bodies, and thematic visits to AMPB firms.

Calculation of scores for applicants with more than 1 sitting in HKDSE Examination

In general, most of the programmes offered by HKU consider the best results achieved by candidates in different combination of sittings, except for a few programmes which only consider the latest results.  Few programmes may also impose a penalty on HKDSE repeaters.  The policy on the calculation of scores in combined sittings of HKDSE for the 2022-23 exercise will be finalized at a later stage, which will be posted on our website https://www.hku.hk/dse.
