Info Session for MSc in Investment Management/ Financial Analysis - Nov 2017

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 (MScIM) and Master of Science in Financial Analysis (MScFA), 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. We start with solid foundations in accounting, economics, quantitative and computing skills, corporate finance, investment analysis, and derivatives - core subjects on the exams of professional bodies such as Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA), Chartered Alternative Investments Analysts (CAIA), Financial Risk Manager (FRM®) and Energy Risk Professional (ERP®). Students then build on this broad knowledge base by completing advanced courses for their chosen program and specialized electives that lead to concentrations in Asset Management, FinTech, or Risk Management for MScIM program and Corporate Finance and Security Analysis for MScFA program.


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. All these allow students to survey the landscape of the finance industry, develop applied analytical skills, learn about specific company, 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.
