About

The BSc(QFin) Quantitative Finance programme from The University of Hong Kong equips you with the quant skills that are required in more advanced and sophisticated financial analyses, such as valuation models of structured products, risk management, data analysis, financial engineering, and quantitative trading.

Overview

The Quantitative Finance programme from The University of Hong Kong goes beyond merely equipping students with quant skills.  More importantly, it stresses on combining these skills with an understanding of the financial markets, the macro environment, and the practical situations where financial managers work.  To this end, the curriculum offers a balanced mix of quant and business courses.

Experiential Learning

To nurture students’ professional knowledge and market acumen, the programme provides a wide range of value-enhancing activities, such as Round Tables with Practitioners, Alumni Drinks, Executive Mentorship Scheme, Bloomberg workshops, simulation trading workshops, and an international field trip to other international financial centres such as New York, London and Zurich.

Professional Recognition

1. The BSc(QFin) programme is fully accredited by the Professional Risk Managers International Association (PRMIA). PRMIA offers the Professional Risk Manager (PRM) designation which is regarded as one of the definitive designations in the risk management industry. Graduates from the BSc(QFin) are exempted from the PRM Paper 1.

Career Prospects

Because of their quant skills, BSc(QFin) graduates have more career choices than regular finance or business graduates.  Besides standard roles they could pursue, such as investment bankers, equity researchers, and wealth managers, BSc(QFin) graduates have an edge in jobs that require quantitative and numerical competency, such as quant traders, data analysts, financial engineers, and risk managers.

BSc(QFin) graduates have successfully landed jobs with reputable financial institutions such as Morgan Stanley, UBS, Credit Suisse, Barclays Capital, J P Morgan, BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Securities and Futures Commission, and the Hong Kong Monetary Authority.

The degree also opens doors to postgraduate studies in finance and economics.
