Info Session for MSc in Investment Management/ Financial Analysis - Jan 2018


~ New in 2018: FinTech Concentration ~


Seeking to expand your career horizons and opportunities for advancement in the financial-services industry? Looking for a well-recognized program that all finance professionals in Hong Kong (and area) should complete? Craving an intellectual challenge? Wish to improve your job performance and to better support your colleagues? Searching for a program that combines academic rigor, applied skills, and industry knowledge, enrichment activities, and an alumni network of nearly one thousand graduates since 1996? Then look no more. Consider HKUST, home to the mostly highly-ranked and widely-respected business school and finance department in Asia!

Enroll in one of our world-class finance master’s programs: The Master of Science in Investment Management (MSc IM) and Master of Science in Financial Analysis (MSc FA), both offered in part-time mode over 18 months.

Ever since their inception in 1996 and 2002, these programs are widely regarded by finance professionals as the premier programs in the field. We continually adapt the course offering to meet the evolving needs of industry. For instance, following a recent review of our curriculum, we are adding courses and a concentration on FinTech. We start with solid foundations in accounting, quantitative and computing skills, corporate finance, investment analysis, and derivatives - core subjects on the exams of professional certifications such as Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), Chartered Alternative Investments Analyst (CAIA), and Financial Risk Manager (FRM). We build on this broad knowledge base with advanced courses and specialized electives for optional concentrations in Asset Management, Risk Management, Corporate Finance, Security Analysis, and FinTech (starting September 2018).

We supplement the courses with enrichment activities (e.g., luncheons, industry talks, receptions, field trips) so students can network with practitioners in Hong Kong and students from other HKUST business programs. In addition, an international study tour is arranged during the Winter break. The study tour allows students to survey the landscape of the finance industry, develop applied analytical skills, learn about specific companies, and network with business people outside Hong Kong. Finally, a large, active alumni association enables our graduates to leverage their experience and make their affiliation with HKUST a productive, life-long engagement.

Want to know more? About program details, admission procedures, and other practicalities? Then join us at our next information session on January 23, 2018. Prof Peter MacKay, Associate Professor of Finance, will present the programs and answer your questions. Our admissions team will also be on hand to answer individual questions and assist you with your application. All those interested in furthering their career development are welcome. Prior registration is recommended.
