The HKU MFin programme is a very well structured programme, well-balanced academically and practicably. I have made good connections with classmates and have built long-term friendships. With the strong alumni network, graduates often get support from alumni like us.
 
 
 
 
 
  HKU MFin programme facilitated a career turning point for me. I had no financial background prior to the programme and the curriculum gave me a strong foundation in finance to prepare me for my career transition into real estate private equity. Besides the educational component of the programme, I also made friends whom I still talk to even to this day. The programme to me, was a catalyst for me to make a change in my life.

There is so much more you achieve when studying through HKU MFin than just a master. You gain knowledge, confidence and for me the best part was it gave me a great insight on risk management. The course resources are in-depth and the staff are very helpful and accessible if you have questions. I thoroughly recommend this course to anyone thinking about aiming higher.
 
 
 
 
 
  HKU MFin programme has been a most exciting and dynamic learning experience for me. I was initially attracted here by the University’s reputation and personal interest in quantitative finance, but the learning opportunities, networking platform and programme curriculum helped me much further to develop my career in finance substantially. Highly recommended!

I appreciate that I could have the opportunity to learn not only the knowledge itself in HKU, but also how to think, how to interact, how to be a better person who may positively contribute to the society via the distinguished spirit, from strength to strength, of HKU MFin where I do believe that I made a right choice to come to HKU MFin.
 
 
 
 
 
  As a graduate of HKU MFin programme, I have not only acquired considerable financial knowledge but also been inspired by responsible and dedicated professors and lecturers. The MFin programme offered a good combination of academic theory and market practice. Its strong connection with people in the industry is a valuable asset in the path to success.

HKU MFin programme provides me a wide range of financial knowledge and skillsets. It enables me to connect with thousands of alumni and industry leaders in Asia and broaden my horizons into a global perspective. The professors I met and friends I made become my treasurable assets whose value is truly above rubies.
 
 
 
 
 
  HKU MFin is really outstanding, not just because of its convenient Admiralty Town Center which saves much of travelling time; not just because of its excellent faculty and well planned course content. The things really matter to me are the highly passionate professors, helpful staff and the superb quality of the fellow MFin classmates. I would strongly recommend, if you are looking for a MFin course to learn something truly beneficial for your career and life.

HKU MFin is a quantitative-based programme which provided me with a thorough understanding on financial markets and instruments. The programme offers comprehensive and up-to-date materials to students. With that, I was able to study a variety of existing financial products available in the market at that time and it was essential for my knowledge and career.

HKU MFin also emphasizes on statistical, mathematical and computational training. The projects and assignments provided me with a great practice based on the practical scenarios and real-world situations. I had to apply and transform what we learnt into tools that are commonly used within the industry such as building up an Excel model to price a CDO which was very challenging.

Apart from academic training, HKU MFin dedicates to career and alumni networking events such as career induction seminars and professional seminars on current market trend or market spotlight topics. By attending these seminars, I met some seniors in the industry and gained an insight into the current market development. Moreover, I met many alumni who worked in the same industry in networking drink. It definitely can help build up my network.

Regarding my career development, the statistical and mathematical training provided by HKU MFin did help me a lot as I have to deal with many numbers and data every day. I highly recommend this Master to anybody who wishes to broaden their knowledge in financial markets.
 
 
 
 
 
  It is a great chance to meet new people and gain new knowledge. My time in HKU MFin programme was an enriching and wonderful opportunity.
