About

Master of Finance at The University of Hong Kong is an interdisciplinary programme that aims to provide motivated individuals with cutting-edge training in financial theory and the necessary mathematical, statistical and computer training to enable them to compete in a challenging local and global financial environment.

Overview

While quantitative rigour is an important feature of the Master of Finance, the programme emphasises the practical applications of advancements in knowledge. 

Its statistical and mathematical training focus on offering the necessary quantitative background for understanding modern financial theories. Its financial training stresses the economic concepts underlying the development of powerful financial models and also their risk-management implications. 

Its computational training emphasises the practical transformation of these theories into tools commonly used by arbitrageurs, hedgers, speculators, portfolio managers, risk managers and regulators.
