We offer this 2-year top-up programme with Edinburgh Napier University, UK. It offers students the opportunity either to enter the financial services industry or, if they already have professional insurance or banking qualifications, to enhance their existing skills and knowledge.

Students will be provided with a comprehensive set of course materials as well as have access to Napier's electronic library and student's online portal.
Special Events Recap
金融及銀行業是帶動香港經濟發展的龍頭，對人才的需求一直十分殷切，加上近期眾多計劃及政策，包括滬港通、基金互認、深港通及人民幣國際化、一帶一路等的推出，從業員在行業裏發展，可說是不愁沒有好機遇的。「其實除了機遇，還有挑戰。」HKU SPACE金融商業學院高級課程主任陳耀光博士（Ringo）於一個題為《金融專題講座：如何加入金融服務業人才短缺的部門？》的講座中說。「一直以來，業界及從業員都不斷在變：例如，在08年金融海嘯發生後，業界對風險管理（Risk Management）、企業管治（Corporate Governance）、法規（Compliance）的人才需求可謂『史無前例』，而在這兩年，銀行有增加聘請前線人員（如客戶關係經理等職位）的趨勢。」
Ringo說：「對沒有金融相關背景而又想轉行的人士，及本身已是從業員但又想轉換工作性質的人士而言，我會建議他們報讀一些短期的課程或高級文憑課程。例如，我們的BA(Hons) Financial Services, Edinburgh Napier University，就是專為在職人士而設。畢業後，他們更可繼續升學，考取碩士資格。」
