CB launches MSc in Accounting and Finance with Beijing National Accounting Institute

City University of Hong Kong has joined hands with the Beijing National Accounting Institute (BNAI) to launch a new Master of Science in Accounting and Finance with AI and Fintech Applications (MScAF). The programme has been approved by the Ministry of Education of the Mainland Government and admissions for the first student cohort are to commence soon.

"The College is committed to developing cutting edge academic programmes to meet the needs of society, and the introduction of the MScAF programme marks another curriculum innovation," said Professor Houmin Yan, Acting Dean of the College.

The programme targets mid-level accounting and financial managers who are interested in updating themselves with contemporary AI and fintech applications in their fields. At the College of Business, the departments of Accountancy, Economics and Finance, and Information Systems have been responsible for building the interdisciplinary curriculum.

BNAI is one of the three accounting education institutes established at the national level to provide advanced professional education to practicing accountants and finance managers at the master's level. MScAF will be delivered mainly at the BNAI's Beijing campus and partly at CityU's Kowloon Tong campus, with BNAI and CB faculty equally sharing the teaching.
