Hong Kong is a prominent international financial centre and our BBA Finance Stream has been a favourite choice of many students who aspire to a career in finance. The insurance sector is one of the fastest growing sectors in the financial services industry in Hong Kong. Our BBA Risk and Insurance Management Stream aims to provide high quality graduates to meet the increasing demand in corporate and managerial positions in the insurance sector. In order to maximize synergy and consolidate our resources, the Department of Finance and Insurance was created to host the above two highly important and related streams. There are currently eight full-time academic staff members in the Department of Finance and Insurance, all with substantial teaching experience in Hong Kong and at reputable overseas universities. Furthermore, our academic staff have industry experience and are professionally qualified. They also publish in leading international refereed journals such as the Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, Management Science, Journal of Economic Theory, Quarterly Journal of Economics, Economic Journal, Review of Economics and Statistics, Rand Journal of Economics, Journal of Accounting Research, Accounting Review, MIS Quarterly, and the Journal of Risk and Insurance. The Department offers both undergraduate BBA (Finance) and BBA (Risk and Insurance Management) and post-graduate (M.Phil.) degree programmes.
