Building on
a Century of Excellence

Bachelor of Science in Quantitative Finance [BSc(QFin)]

 

The BSc(QFin) is an enhanced version of a regular finance programme.  Besides offering a solid foundation in major areas of finance such as microeconomics, macroeconomics, corporate finance, and investment as a regular finance programme does, BSc(QFin) equips students with the requisite quantitative skills needed in financial analysis such as statistics and programming. In addition, the programme broadens students’ perspectives by introducing them to advance topics in finance such as financial modeling, risk management, financial engineering, and market regulations.

The programme strikes a delicate balance between quantitative skills and market knowledge. Its curriculum is designed to train all-rounded financial managers who can relate theories to practice and know how to apply quantitative skills to real world problems. To nurture students' soft skills and market acumen, the programme puts in place a range of enrichment activities in collaboration with practitioners in the financial market, such as Round Table with Practitioners, Executive Mentoring Scheme, Bloomberg workshops, and international field trip to financial centers such as New York, London, and Zurich.

The programme also provides amply room and flexibility for students to take free electives and to acquire additional knowledge in specific areas through minor or second major.

The programme is fully accredited by PRMIA and closely linked to the PRM™ Programme.  Successful graduates from BSc(QFin) who have completed ALL courses listed in Appendix A and obtained a GPA of 3.0 or above in these courses will be exempted from PRM I and II exams, which form half of the PRM™ Designation Programme.  The Professional Risk Managers™ International Association (PRMIA) is a non-profit professional association, governed by a Board of Directors directly elected by its global membership, of nearly 90,000 members worldwide.  Established in 2002 by a volunteer group of risk industry professionals, PRMIA™’s mission is to provide a free and open forum for the promotion of sound risk management standards and practices globally.

The programme is a designated CFA Programme Partner.   Under this partnership, CFA scholarships are available to final year QF students to take the CFA Level I Examination.  In addition, they can also attend free workshops on ethics and professional standards taught by experienced professionals from the local CFA society.

BSc(QFin) students are required to take a total of 240 credit units of courses for the 4-year curricula.
