MPhil in Economics Duration: 2 years (Full-time) Place: Hong Kong With 12 regular academic staff, the Economics Department is large by Lingnan’s standards. Its members all hold PhDs from top universities internationally, and now counts with world-renowned Professor Avinash Dixit from Princeton University as its Distinguished Adjunct Professor (spending periods of 6 to 8 weeks with us annually). Following the UGC’s 2006 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) results that showed Lingnan’s Economics Department was among the top 2 highest Departments in Hong Kong in research, the 2014 RAE reaffirms our strong performance. In Economics, LU ranks 3rd among all the eight UGC-funded institutions in its 4-star rating at 13%, which is above the sector-wide 11%, and LU is the only institution which does not have any research output in the “Unclassified” category among all Economics cost centers. Equally important for our research students, the Department hosts a constant string of top scholars from around the world for short visits and seminars. With funding from the largest-ever policy research grant from Hong Kong’s RGC, our Economics Department was first in Hong Kong to launch an in-depth research effort on the determinants of International Financial Centres and financial activity in Hong Kong and the region, and has considerable research, industry and policy depth across all areas of finance. In partnership with its sister Department of Finance and Insurance, this effort has now led to the creation of an International Finance Research Institute, based at Lingnan but bringing together the expertise of associates in industry and in academia locally and internationally. The Economics Department’s research and expertise span broad areas of economic theory and empirical and policy work ― in international economics, finance and trade, competition policy, labour markets, housing and health policy, ageing problems and population economics. The publications by the staff members of the Economics Department have appeared in the leading journals in economics and finance such as Econometrica, Journal of Financial Economics, Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, Journal of Economic Theory, Review of Economic Studies, International Economic Review, Economic Journal, European Economic Review, Journal of Public Economics, Journal of Development Economics, and Journal of International Economics.

MSc in Finance The Master of Science (MSc) in Finance is offered and managed by the Department of Finance and Insurance at Lingnan University. The MSc degree will give a deep coverage of the major areas in finance, with an emphasis on professional practice. As such, the degree will cover asset pricing, commercial and investment banking, corporate finance, financial engineering, insurance, investments, risk management, and wealth management. The inclusion of insurance electives will increase the appeal of the degree to both students and potential employers and it represents an area of strength in the Department. The staff members in the Department of Finance and Insurance are well placed to deliver professionally relevant courses as is evidenced by their professional and academic qualifications in accounting, actuarial science, financial analysis, finance, insurance, risk management, and taxation. The Department’s undergraduate finance degree is recognised by the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute (University Recognition Programme) and the Risk and Insurance Management (RIM) degree is recognised by the Chartered Insurance Institute and the Insurance Institute of Hong Kong. These features will help distinguish our MSc from others in the market place. The MSc in Finance is designed to help students become finance professionals through leading edge teaching and curriculum design. Our Focus 1. The degree is ideal for those students who have no, limited, or an intermediate level of knowledge of finance but who have a strong desire to learn and who are keen to work in the finance industry in Hong Kong, China, and internationally. 2. The degree will emphasise the important concepts, skills, and theoretical and institutional underpinnings of finance in semester 1 and more advanced topics and practical aspects in semester 2. 3. The degree will provide an excellent background for students who wish to take the major professional qualifications in finance such as the CFA, CIIA, FRM, and CII designations. Our undergraduates have achieved great success in these professional examinations and in the licensing exams of the Hong Kong securities regulator, the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC). 4. Our undergraduates in the BBA Finance and BBA Risk and Insurance Management have enjoyed great success in their careers in commercial and investment banking, fund and wealth management, insurance, and in other financial institutions. We fully expect that our graduates in the MSc in Finance will be able to compete in the job market. Non-local students have the opportunity to remain in Hong Kong for one year after graduation to look for a job. Our Strength 1. Our full time Professors have many years of experience in teaching all aspects of finance. All staff have PhDs from major U.S., European, and Hong Kong universities and are active researchers who publish their work in the major journals*. Our staff have extensive expertise in China, regional, and international financial markets and institutions. 2. Our staff have professional qualifications in accounting, actuarial science, financial analysis and investment, insurance, risk management, and tax. This attests to the professional relevance of our teaching and enables us to provide the best guidance to students who want to take the major professional qualifications in finance. 3. The Department of Finance and Insurance is a recognised partner programme of the CFA Institute. The Department is also officially recognised by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) and our students obtain substantial credits towards the internationally-recognised ACII qualification. 4. The Faculty of Business is accredited by the AACSB, the premier international accreditation agency of business schools. This attests to the quality of our programmes and teaching staff. *The Department has been ranked as being in the top 30 Asia-Pacific universities and the top 10 greater China universities in terms of total research productivity in finance. This is highly commendable given that our Department is much smaller than the other universities.^ ^Kam C. Chan, Carl R. Chen, and Tan (Charlene) Lee (2011). A long-term assessment of finance research performance among Asia-Pacific academic institutions (1990-2008). Pacific-Basin Finance Journal, 19, 157-171. The University and its Environs 1. Lingnan University is the only government funded liberal arts university in Hong Kong. The total size is a little over 3000 students. The University has a small-class size philosophy that enables close student-professor interactions. This philosophy extends to the MSc in Finance and provides a contrast to other graduate finance degrees in Hong Kong. 2. Lingnan University provides a wide range of services to students and a vibrant social life with a wide range of social clubs and activities. While Hong Kong is an expensive city to live, the accommodation costs are relatively cheaper near Lingnan University. There may be some University Hostel housing available (although priority is given to the undergraduates) and there is an active rental market within a hundred metres of the University.
