Case Studies in Finance Core  

Specialized practical financial education  

Experts in financial practice teach advanced practicum courses specialized in investment banking, asset management, financial engineering, and insurance.

Emphasis on work ethics

The further the finance industry advances, the more sophisticated financial knowledge becomes, which widens the information divide between customers and suppliers. Accordingly, the integrity of professionals in the financial sector is a pre-requisite for the stable development of the industry. With practical programs based on the “Business Code of Honor,” a community outreach service, and unsupervised tests, the Finance MBA helps students learn business ethics.

International Residence Program

The Finance MBA offers students the opportunity to visit foreign financial institutions and prestigious universities to nurture a global perspective regarding business practice. Finance MBA students visited UPenn Wharton School, National University of Singapore (NUS) and Fudan University so far during Module 3 as well as renowned financial institutions in New York and Hong Kong and so on.
