The Master of Science in Finance postgraduate programme offered at Lingnan University is open to anyone interested in finance. It’s a good start for those seeking career opportunities and advancement in Hong Kong’s most prominent industry.


The Pillars of Hong Kong’s Success

Banking and finance are the major pillars of the Hong Kong economy, so the demand for professionals with a finance background, and a knowledge of the industry has always been steady. Employment opportunities are continuing to grow. With China’s fast economic growth, and its Belt and Road Initiative and the Greater Bay Area strategy, Hong Kong is going to play an even more important role in its integration with Mainland China. Stock Connect and Bond Connect, for instance, have contributed to the internationalization of Chinese companies and the yuan. The banking and finance industry is expected to continue to grow in terms of the sector’s contribution to Hong Kong’s GDP for years to come. So employment in the sector will likely increase.
