Programme Information


The Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) in Financial Analysis Programme aims to provide a four-year university education to equip students with core financial analytical skills to become an effective investment professional. The Programme is built on the foundation of the ‘Financial Analyst’ role, and closely follows the core competency of the recognised professional standard known as the Chartered Financial Analyst Program Candidate Body of Knowledge™.

Financial analysis is the process of evaluating businesses, projects, budgets and other finance-related entities to determine their suitability for investment. It generally relates to a broad area of appraisal in finance on any economic systems. The BBA in Financial Analysis Programme is predominately investment focused. This will enable them to seek employment in the financial services industry, take professional qualification examinations and have the option to pursue further higher level degrees.

The beauty of this programme is that the BBA aspect is more of a generalist designation while students also have specialisation in the financial analysis topics as in the Chartered Financial Analyst curriculum. The programme is not only suitable for those who have a keen interest in the finance and investment industry and want to develop a career being an analyst, but also suitable for students who want to use the skills developed from the programme for general business management.

Programme Objectives

Upon completion of the programme, students are expected:

  • To have practical knowledge and authentic skills necessary in the global investment profession
