What will I learn?

The HKU Business School Master of Finance in Financial Technology (MFFinTech) programme is jointly offered by three faculties: the Business School, the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Law. Our faculty members are involved in cutting-edge research and have accumulated experience to nurture the FinTech talents and ensure all students are taught the most up-to-date technological advancements.
