Placement Info

The majority of graduates had been successful in securing employment upon their graduation as in the past years. Employers include commercial banks and the Big-four accounting firms. Whilst most students decide to stay within the region, in Hong Kong or Shenzhen, some headed off to explore other parts of the world, for instance, Beijing and Shanghai.

Other MSc graduates, who are dedicated to pursue their doctoral degree, have also been accepted by PhD programs.  Some of them have received multiple offers to continue their study in renowned universities in North America.  Fellowships and scholarships are often provided as well.
