Finance

The Finance programme provides the foundational knowledge and skills required of a qualified and competent finance professional. With an applied focus and an emphasis on data and technology, our students apply financial concepts to real-life cases and issues. This application-oriented approach gives students the contextual knowledge required to solve complex problems in the financial industry. Armed with these skills, our graduates will be well-equipped to meet the challenges of a demanding yet rewarding financial career, and can expect to find employment opportunities in areas such as compliance, risk management, financial planning, treasury and capital management, private banking and corporate finance.

Finance students are required to complete common curriculum, core business, and finances courses, as well as courses in their selected minor. Students must also complete a case study-based strategy course and an applied research project. In addition, they are required to complete an overseas experience, a 24-week work attachment, and a service-learning project.
