Our finance and economics courses have been developed to match the needs of employers and are highly regarded within business and government, whether national or international.

MSc Finance begins with a 3 week introductory module covering two professional certificates. Firstly you will cover the content for the CFA Institute Investment Foundations Certificate. It is recognised by employers in the finance industry and can be completed optionally externally at a fee. You will also be introduced to the Bloomberg Terminals and given the opportunity to complete the free online exam ‘Bloomberg Essentials’. Completing these professional certificates can help you stand out to employers. This course allows you to take advantage of studying a six-month MSc in Hong Kong.
