Pre-experience specialised Master’s programme for graduates from all backgrounds to develop in-depth competencies
The National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School adds a new Master of Science (MSc) in Finance programme, for both business and non-business pre-experience graduates, to its broad repertoire of programmes. The first intake, consisting up to 40 students will commence in October 2018.
Developed in consultation with sector agencies, industry partners, faculty and undergraduates, the programme will offer two main tracks – Corporate Finance and Investment Finance. The new Master’s programme aims to address the substantial changes in the regulatory and institutional environments faced by the financial sector by offering a rigorous and industry-relevant learning environment combined with robust industry internship and networking opportunities.
Professor Jochen Wirtz, Vice Dean (Graduate Studies), NUS Business School, said, “With increasing volatility and technological disruption to existing business models and market structures, we anticipate the demand and role of finance in the future economy to extend beyond the financial sector. Employers will require specialised talent in the corporate, markets and financial intermediation sectors with analytical and problem solving skills and high ethics to understand and address these challenges.”
The programme will be delivered intensively over 14 months, including a compulsory experiential learning component. Please refer to Annex A for an outline of the MSc in Finance curriculum.
Associate Professor Johan Sulaeman, Academic Director, NUS Business School, said, “This programme leverages self-directed and experiential learning to provide students with a fundamental understanding of the industry, while instilling qualities for them to be resourceful and enterprising in exploring effective solutions.”

The new programme joins the current repertoire of pre-experience Master’s programmes that includes the Master of Science in Management together with the Master in International Management as part of CEMS, the Global Alliance in Management Education.
