[photopress:Macquarie.jpg,full,alignright] Tsinghua University will cooperate with Macquarie University in Sydney to launch masters’ degree programs for applied finance. MQ’s Master of Applied Finance — currently taught in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Singapore and Tokyo — will be taught at Tsinghua’s campus in English by Macquarie academics.
A small portion of the content (such as the legal aspects) has been localised for the Chinese market. Its unique advantage over other Applied Finance degrees is that the people who teach the program are all industry professionals with at least 10 years of senior experience in finance.
The Masters consists of five core subjects — investments, financial instruments, corporate finance, financial risk management and legal risk in finance.
