HKUST’s Department of Finance is renowned for its research impact. It is the only finance department in the Asia-Pacific whose research has consistently ranked in the top-25 globally. You might well learn a few cutting-edge ideas from our faculty even before the finance industry incorporates them.

HKUST has offered the MSc IM program on a part-time basis since 1996. The program has trained and graduated well over 1,000 students, many of whom have taken up key roles in the financial industry. The full-time MSc IM program was an instant success since its launch in 2014. And 2018 marks the launch of our exciting new FinTech concentration. Our alumni tell us that the MSc IM program is the most important investment they have made in their career. Come join their ranks!

Hong Kong sits at the very center of finance for Asia and much of the world. It is an exciting and dynamic city, constantly adjusting to the rapidly-changing world of finance. The MSc IM program will help you develop a global view of finance, and jump-start your career in the finance industry.
