Individuals, government officials, and business executives make financial decisions. These decisions can be classified into two basic categories: (1) the investment decision and (2) the financial decision. The first involves identifying and selecting the most appropriate investments. The second deals with where and how to raise the necessary cash to finance the chosen investments. Depending on its nature, a financial decision can be vital to the well-being of the persons or the organisations concerned.
To make the right decision with confidence, the decision-maker needs both specific knowledge and relevant experience. The BBA (Hons) degree programme with the Concentration in Finance prepares students to be competent financial decision-makers. It provides students with a general understanding of the various management functions and a specific education in major aspects of finance.
With relevant experience, graduates from this programme, whether in the capacity of business executives or government officials, have the necessary knowledge and skills to enable them to make sound financial decisions and thereby to contribute significantly to the success of their organisations.
In the first year, all students follow a common study programme while a modest amount of specialisation in finance is provided in the second and third years. Applications to the case of Hong Kong are stressed throughout the programme.
