MS in Global Finance

Established in 2007, the MS in Global Finance Program (MSGF) is a joint partnership program between the HKUST Business School and the NYU Stern School of Business. 

The program provides a rewarding learning experience with classes held in three world financial centers – Hong Kong, New York and Shanghai. Courses are taught by HKUST and NYU Stern faculty, and dynamic interactions among experienced finance executives from more than 10 countries provide practical insights into the global market place.

The comprehensive curriculum is designed to enable participants to better understand the global implications of financial issues in today’s markets and to further broaden their knowledge and application of financial concepts and instruments.

HKUST Business School

Established in 1991, the HKUST Business School has risen to international prominence in a remarkably short period of time, achieving widespread global recognition and a variety of prestigious academic rankings, including both the Kellogg-HKUST EMBA Program and the HKUST MBA Program being ranked No. 1 in the world and in Asia, respectively, by the Financial Times. The Department of Finance has been consistently ranked No. 1 in research in the Asia-Paci­fic region.


The HKUST Business School was the ­first business school in the region accredited by both the US-based Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) and the

European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS). The School is always at the forefront of educational development and business thinking, and strives for excellence in research and teaching.

Our unique Asian and global perspectives are made possible by our international faculty members. Our graduates strive to make a positive impact on both the business world and wider society.
