Programme Aims and Features
The Bachelor of Finance in Asset Management and Private Banking (BFin(AMPB)) programme is the first undergraduate programme of its kind in Hong Kong and Asia. The Programme aims to prepare students to enter the rapidly growing fields of asset management and private banking in Hong Kong and Asia Pacific.

The practical and career-oriented curriculum of the BFin(AMPB) programme provides our students with the necessary knowledge and skills for careers in asset management and private banking.

BFin(AMPB) students will be given opportunities to apply for different enrichment activities specific to their studies, including overseas exchange study and industry-sponsored internships in either Year 2 or 3.
