Programme Introduction

Kick off your finance journey with our Quantitative Finance Programme

The Quantitative Finance Programme was established in 1998 to train individuals who aspire to pursue careers in the financial industry. Over the years, our programme has responded to the market’s need for highly skilled professionals with a strong background in quantitative and analytical skills in today’s globalized economy. We offer specially designed courses in finance, mathematics, statistics and information technology, enabling students to better understand the latest developments in the financial industry.

To bridge the gap between the classroom and the real world of banking and finance, we offer practical courses by industry practitioners. Additionally, sharing sessions and seminars provide students with ample opportunities to discuss current finance-related issues with industry experts. We strongly encourage students to engage in internships in various financial institutions to further enhance their competitive advantage.

Why study with us?

Established in 1998, QFIN was the first quantitative finance program in Hong Kong. Our rich history has allowed us to build a strong alumni network. Our alumni work in various positions in the financial industry, providing our current students with invaluable connections and opportunities. Furthermore, our alumni are dedicated to giving back to the programme and its students. They hold sharing sessions, teach classes, act as mentors, and provide scholarships to support the next generation of students. Their willingness to help their juniors is a testament to the strong sense of community that our programme fosters.

Our Financial Trading Laboratory is another valuable resource for our students. It is equipped with Bloomberg and Refinitiv terminals, giving our students access to real-world data, which allows them to apply theoretical concepts to practical situations. This hands-on experience is invaluable in preparing our students for careers in the financial industry.

Our programme’s capability to attract talented and passionate students from diverse backgrounds results in a dynamic and stimulating learning environment. As a result, our students have achieved outstanding performance in various investment competitions, including the CFA Institute Research Challenge, CQA Investment Challenge, FOAHK Case Competition, HKSII Case Competition, and McGill International Portfolio Challenge.

We believe that higher education is an opportunity for students to explore their interests and passions. That’s why in addition to the required courses for their programme and the university, our students are given the opportunity to choose 12 credits worth of courses that they want to explore. This allows them to delve into a variety of fields and discover new interests. Furthermore, students have the option to use these credits to pursue a minor in a specific area of study, such as Computer Science, Economics, French, Mathematics, Philosophy, Risk Management and Statistics.
