Students are required to complete a total of 12 courses including:
Course Exemption & Advanced Standing
Course exemption of up to two required courses, except the capstone course, may be granted (normally by examination) if candidates:
- Produce evidence, such as a transcript and course syllabus, that a course is equivalent in content to another course taken elsewhere for which a satisfactory grade has been obtained, or
- Are holding relevant professional qualifications which were obtained before admission to the programme.
No credits will be given for the exempted course and candidates shall be required to take an approved alternative course of the same credit value.
Advanced standing of up to two required courses, except the capstone course, may be granted if:
- The course is completed at a graduate, postgraduate or master level from a recognized programme elsewhere within the last four years before admission to the programme and a good grade in the course was achieved, or
- The candidate possesses a relevant professional qualification which was obtained before admission to the programme.
In such cases, no replacement courses will be required and the tuition fees will be adjusted accordingly.
Applications for course exemption and advanced standing are subject to the approval of the MFFinTech Programme Director and committees concerned.
