Program Design

FinTech is an emerging but important area that has been developing rapidly in recent years. The MScFinTech program at HKUST is designed for talents and working professionals who want to combine technical and financial knowledge to stimulate innovative solutions that meet the challenges posed by this emerging field.

The MScFinTech program provides students with fundamental knowledge and skills relating to popular financial technologies and their engineering and financial principles, thereby enhancing students’ market competitiveness in the remarkably booming FinTech space. In view of the multi-disciplinary nature of FinTech, the program, jointly run by SBM, SENG and SSCI, draws expertise from timely areas such as information technology, blockchain, decision analytics, etc..
We expect graduates of the program to be able to analyse the engineering mechanisms and financial principles of new and emerging financial technologies. Students will be able to formulate and analyse FinTech-related problems and solve such problems using practical means supported by engineering methodologies and relevant quantitative techniques.
