About QFIN

Programme Features

The Quantitative Finance (QFIN) Programme offers a comprehensive curriculum that covers the mainstream subjects of business and quantitative methods. Students are encouraged to undertake internships at major financial institutions, and take three practical courses – “Fund Management and Asset Allocation”, “Technical Analysis: Theory and Practice” and “Banking and Finance Practicum” as a bridge between the classroom and the real world. The Program also organizes a guest speaker series to provide students with the opportunity to discuss current financial issues with industry experts.

Students usually take most of the required courses in their early years of study and the elective courses thereafter. Students are also offered the flexibility to minor in other areas, such as mathematics, statistics and economics.
