From November 2019, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) will be partnering Peking University (PKU) to offer a Double Masters Programme focused on grooming finance talents.
Jointly offered by NTU’s Nanyang Business School (NBS) and Peking University’s School of Economics (SEPKU), the 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.
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.
The bilingual Double Masters Programme will be delivered in two stages at both universities, NTU said in a press release. 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.
Applicants must meet the admission criteria of both universities.
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.
“We are pleased to partner with Peking University, a renowned global university. 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.’’
Professor Sun Qixiang, Dean of School of Economics Peking University, said, "Nanyang Business School is an internationally recognised institution, and we are very happy to see the formal establishment of this dual-degree partnership programme after years of hard work on both sides. (This programme) 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."
