Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore), and Peking University have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to launch a double Masters degree programme in Finance.
The programme will be offered by NTU’s Nanyang Business School (NBS) and Peking University’s School of Economics (SEPKU).
Upon graduation, the students will be awarded NTU’s Master of Science in Finance and PKU’s Master’s Degree.
The double Masters programme will enhance the quality and diversity of finance education at both universities, in an increasingly competitive postgraduate market.
Students in the programme will get to study at both campuses, with the curricula to be delivered in English and Chinese at NBS and Chinese at SEPKU. Studying at both campuses will broaden the student’s horizons and help them gain cross-cultural competence. It also plugs them into the larger financial communities of both countries.
Professor Neo Boon Siong, Dean of NTU’s Nanyang Business School, said, “We are pleased to partner with a distinguished Chinese university such as Peking University. This partnership will offer our students an immersive educational experience and access to the financial sector in China and Southeast Asia. Over the years, NBS has worked with many renowned institutions of higher learning in China to introduce various business programmes. This collaboration marks another milestone for NTU’s business education.”
“China is a major player in today’s dynamic and fast-paced global economy. NTU’s Nanyang Business School is proud to play a part in the finance and business education of students who will become the future business leaders in Asia and beyond,” Professor Neo said.
Professor Dong Zhiyong, CPC Secretary of School of Economics Peking University, said, “With the rapid process of global economic integration, internationalisation is one of the fundamental trends in education today, and we are pleased to cooperate with our partners in Singapore. This is the first collaboration with a top Asian business school in the history of SEPKU. We attach great importance to this collaboration opportunity.
“The partnership between NBS and School of Economics of PKU will promote the expansion of the university collaboration network and further enhance the integration of educational resources in Southeast Asia, producing more business leaders from students of the two schools,” Professor Dong said.
