“Time passes quickly. This year in Lingnan University is really an unforgettable journey in my life. I still remember how frustrated I was when I first came to Hong Kong, how confused I was in the first lesson, and how difficult to recite all materials. As I am not a graduate from finance major, those jargons and concept are one of my huge obstacles. However, under the professional teaching from professors, extensive helps from peers and my passion in finance, I graduate. I write this, not only to express the gratitude to my dearest teachers, but also encourage all freshmen to pursue their dreams and passion during this year. Studying is not only for the exams but for chasing your dreams.”

Mr. LONG Wenjie, Vincent (2017/18)

Beihang University, China

“I know that there are many students who want to study finance instead of their major of bachelor’s degree. So am I. Applying for this MSc in Finance programme is my first step of converting my major of computer science to finance. Thus, you should consider the following three questions:

 

Why do you learn finance? You should understand that how huge the impacts of innovation in IT industry made. However, do you understand the mysterious and respectful financial industry? In fact, the meanings of the financial industry is to create value from the transactions of money and money itself. And the term “finance” does not refer to only financial industry itself but also to the entity of financial services. So if you don't want to work grudgingly, you need to focus on the industries that you are really interested in.

 

How to find your passion in financial industry? Make your choice! I believe that all financial theory tells you one thing: making choices, which also means that you must take responsibility for your choice and practice it as you learn it from class. In the employment market, we must also dare to choose different areas such as insurance, securities or banking? Primary market or the secondary market? Front office or the back office?

 

What is the key to open the door of success in financial industry? Planning! Working in the financial industry requires a long-term perspective, and it often took three to five years of long-term planning. The longer you make a plan, the more likely to get clarify your direction.

 

This is a young programme, but also an amazing one. No matter for what reason you come here, you will know better about yourself and find something precious here.”

“Time flies and now I am about to graduate. What I have gained in MSc in Finance is not only financial expertise, but also positive attitude towards difficulties, the spirit of teamwork and sense of responsibility from those challenging group projects and the harmonious relationship between students and professors. I have been many universities but Lingnan University is the only student-oriented university within my knowledge. Lingnan is just like parents who do everything they can do to help students to grow. Then I want to express my most cordial and sincere thanks to Professor Joseph Cheng, Professor Stan Ho and other professors who opened the gate for me to the financial world. Also, our helpful Teaching Assistant, Jack, who always gives us useful advices on studying and job hunting. This one year life in Lingnan will become part of my sweet and unforgettable memories.”

Attached to Hong Kong, the international financial center, Lingnan has innumerable financial resources, which not only help me gain the systematic and professional knowledge, but also broaden my international horizon and let me find a brand new self here.

“This year at Lingnan University, in MSc in Finance programme, my gain was far beyond my expectation. As a student who is not a graduate from finance major, I have had access to the many classical finance theory and chances to participate in the visits to different financial institutions. These are very helpful to my career. But what fascinates me most is how meaningful the professors had taught. I still remember Professor Joseph Cheng said that only the sharpest analysts could see a diamond in a haystack. The professors' inspiration is the one that will benefit me for the rest of my life. This year, every classmates, professors, advisory board members helped and improved me. I sincerely thank the programme for giving me an amazing period in Lingnan!”
