The finance discipline has undergone a profound transformation
in the recent decade, brought about the development of structured
products, asset securitization, globalization of trading activities,
and increasing reliance on mathematical and computational technologies.
In response to these developments, a specialized area in finance
called “quantitative finance” has emerged, which emphasizes the
applications of quantitative techniques in finance. The Bachelor
of Science in Quantitative Finance BSc(QFin) programme (JUPAS Code:
6884) is designed to equip students with the quantitative techniques
in mathematical modeling, statistics, and computer programming that
are essential in supporting financial decision making, such as valuation
of financial products, investment and portfolio management, asset
trading, and corporate financial risk management.
