OBJECTIVES

The Master of Economics in Finance is a 2-year full-time English-taught program offered by WISE at Xiamen University, the most beautiful university in China.

With its focus on the field of applied finance, the program is designed to prepare students for international careers in finance both in private and public sectors that require solid analytical and quantitative skills. We emphasize the development of strong analytical and quantitative tools useful in a wide variety of environments. Areas of emphasis include economic modeling and forecasting and international business economics.

Students in this program generally wish to prepare for careers in the financial sector, such as investment and commercial banking, asset management, financial services or consulting, or in corporate finance positions within international companies at a managerial level. The program provides an excellent preparation for the Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA) exams, as it is based on the CFA Candidate Body of Knowledge.
