Language Proficiency Requirement
Applicants should possess proof of English proficiency if their first degrees were obtained from non-English-medium institutions:
a minimum IELTS overall band score of 6.5*; or
TOEFL score of 79 (internet-based)*; or
the equivalent score of other tests.
*Note: Test result provided should be within two years from the date of issuance of the Admission Offer letter. TOEFL iBT Home Edition or IELTS Indicator test is not accepted.
For part-time mode applicants, preference will be given to applicants who have a minimum of three years of relevant work experience, although this may be relaxed for highly qualified applicants.
It is mandatory for students to possess basic training/experience in Finance, Mathematics or Computer Science before embarking on the program. This requirement can be satisfied by the possession of a prior academic degree with major/minor in one of the required fields, by the completion of a substantial number of courses in these fields or by related previous working experience. Applicants who do not possess these qualifications will be required to satisfactorily complete specific preparatory courses covering areas such as quantitative methods (Mathematics, Statistics), Finance and Economics. The students should gain a “pass” in the required preparatory courses before being officially admitted to the Programme.
Qualified applicants will be required to attend an admission interview as part of the selection process.
