Distinguishing FeaturesPrograms and Research
Since finance environment is changing rapidly, qualified managers should be able to cope with these changes effectively. In recognition of this, the Department provides the following training to its students.
The undergraduate program stresses basic finance theories for the first three years and the practical applications of theories in the final year. This arrangement is made because we understand that only by equipping students with theories can we produce the financial professionals who can meet challenges in a rapidly changing environments. We also realize that only through the courses of case studies can the students bridge the gap between theories and practices.
The student/teacher ratio is low in the master program. This facilitates the interaction between students and faculty. Moreover, master students have a quite broad choice of courses in fields related to finance. These include investments, business administration, accounting, banking, economics, and statistics.
Ph.D students are requested to select a minor field of study. The aim is to enhance students abilities to integrate the finance theory with their minor studies.
The Department currently has twelve professors, all with a Ph.D. degree in Finance or business. Their specialties include corporate finance, investment, international finance, financial derivatives, risk management, and real estate. As the department continues to grow, additional faculty members with other specialties will be recruited. The Department also frequently invites distinguished professors from other schools to present their research on financial innovations and newly-developed financial theories. These activities help keep both the faculty and the students on the cutting edge of finance innovations and finance research.
