The programme provides comprehensive training and internship opportunities to prepare students to establish competitive advantages in financial careers such as asset management, investment banking and risk management, as well as further advanced studies.
To be considered for admission, you must satisfy the General Entrance Requirements and have a strong mathematical background.
CityU and the College of Business offer various scholarships and financial assistance schemes to students according to academic merit or need. For details, please click here.
To nurture, inspire and challenge students to enter an international and culturally diverse workplace, internationalisation has become a priority for the College. We have over 180 exchange partner universities, providing numerous exchange opportunities for our business students.
More than half of our undergraduate students embark on a Student Exchange or Overseas Summer Programme. For the latter, students may participate in English immersion courses, which include components such as volunteer placements, homestays and cultural activities in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA. Service Learning participants also provide voluntary services in less developed areas such as the Philippines, Thailand, Mongolia, Sri Lanka and Laos in summer. The Study Abroad Programme allows students to experience a semester abroad on a fee-paying basis and is credit transferrable.
The internship programme is designed to provide students with real-life work experience in local and overseas contexts for at least six weeks in summer. With placements in international business, banking, financial services, insurance, accountancy firms etc., students are expected to gain in-depth knowledge and practical understanding of business operations in a professional context.
Young Scholars Programme
To nurture our undergraduate students to become outstanding future leaders in the region and the world, our Young Scholars Programme offers the following:
Our business students are highly sought after upon graduation. Graduates of the Bachelor of Science in Computational Finance programme can either pursue further advanced studies or use their high-calibre quantitative and analytical skills to begin their careers in the finance industry. Career choices include trader, risk manager and management trainee in the areas of asset management, financial product design and financial risk management.
|Q.||What is the non-JUPAS admission quota?|
|A.||We expect to admit around two students through the non-JUPAS route in 2018.|
|Q.||The non-JUPAS intake is very small, so what is the size of the programme?|
We expect to have around 25 students. The intakes are JUPAS and non-JUPAS, and include local and non-local students.
|Q.||What IB scores/GCEAL grades have students been admitted with in the past?|
|A.||We interviewed applicants with IB scores >=30 (including bonus) or with grade A in 3 GCEAL subjects last year. We expect students who receive our offers to have IB scores of at least 33 (including bonus) or 3 subjects at grade A in GCEAL.|
|Q.||Do I need to attend an admission interview?|
|A.||Yes, non-JUPAS applicants must attend ONE interview before they can receive any offer from this programme. The interview is usually arranged in January/February. Another interview will be arranged in June/July for shortlisted candidates who cannot attend the interview in January/February or are shortlisted after the January/February interview. We prefer to meet applicants face to face in a group setting rather than through any digital means.|
|Q.||Do you have any IB subject requirements (e.g. HL for certain subjects)?|
|A.||We do not have any IB subject requirements; however, preference may be given to students who have studied SL/HL Mathematics.|
