NTU Singapore and Peking University offer Double Masters Programme to groom finance talent

NTU Singapore and Peking University offer Double Masters Programme to groom finance talent

As announced
by Nanyang Technological
University, Singapore
(NTU Singapore), NTU Singapore and Peking University (PKU) will offer a Double
Masters Programme from November 2019.

The full-time Double Masters Programme is aimed at early-
and mid-career executives who want to stand out and thrive in the rapidly
growing and competitive finance sector in Asia. It provides an attractive
proposition to talented executives and professionals from China, Singapore and
the rest of the world who want to enhance their knowledge of the region and be
up to date with new competencies in the industry, including emerging
technologies in FinTech and blockchain. 

“We
are pleased to partner with Peking University, a renowned global university.
NBS has worked with several eminent institutions of higher learning in China to
introduce various business programmes. This collaboration with Peking
University underscores our commitment to finance and business education in Asia
and beyond,” said Professor Robert
Kennedy, Dean of NTU’s Nanyang Business School.

“We believe that the programme’s robust curricula will
prepare our students for leadership roles that will bridge China’s financial
markets with the global economy,” Prof Kennedy added.

The bilingual Double Masters Programme, which enhances the
quality and diversity of finance education offered by NTU and PKU, will be
delivered in two stages at both universities. The programme will be jointly
offered by NTU’s Nanyang Business School
and Peking University’s School of Economics.

Students will typically spend nine months to complete at
least nine courses under the MSc in Finance programme at NTU’s Nanyang Business
School in Singapore, and another 12 to 24 months to complete one of four
professional Master’s programmes in finance, insurance, tax and international
business at PKU’s School of Economics in Beijing.

As part of their exposure, students in the programme will
attend seminars and workshops conducted by industry professionals on current
industry trends and topics, both in Singapore and Beijing.  

Graduates will be awarded NTU’s Master of Science (MSc) in
Finance degree and a Master’s Degree by PKU upon completing this full-time
programme.  

Professor Sun
Qixiang, Dean of School of Economics Peking University, said, "The
Double Masters Programme between Nanyang Business School and School of
Economics Peking University offers a great opportunity for the participating
students to experience two diverse cultures and academic environments,
strengthening their academic versatility and enhancing their outlook and
adaptability as a global citizen."

Last October, the Monetary
Authority of Singapore
unveiled the industry
transformation map (ITM) for financial services
, as part of the broader
national strategy to restructure the economy. The ITM aims to create 3,000 jobs
in financial services, and an additional 1,000 jobs in the FinTech sector
annually by riding on Asia’s continued strong growth.

As reported
earlier
, the ITM aims to make Singapore aims a leading international wealth
management hub. A key focus of the ITM is to facilitate pervasive
innovation in the financial sector and encourage the adoption of technology for
increasing efficiency and creating opportunity.

Towards this objective, MAS plans to step up
efforts to encourage financial institutions to enhance connectivity and FinTech
innovation through Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). MAS will also
collaborate with financial institutions to create common utilities, such as for
electronic payments, digital ID, and electronic know-your-client (KYC)
checks.
