Singapore is a pre-eminent global financial centre. The rapidly expanding financial sector continues on a growth trajectory, currently accounting for over 12% of GDP. With developments in Asia and beyond, prospects for employment and career growth in a wide range of financial services, including commercial and investment banking, wealth management, risk management and financial advisory services, as well as in FinTech, are promising.
The Bachelor of Science in Finance programme (BSFI) is targeted at professionals in the financial sector seeking to upgrade their skills, to enhance their career prospects, or at professionals to switch career paths into finance from other fields. The programme is structured to help students develop their financial knowledge and skillsets in a progressive manner. Students will acquire the ability to think 'out of the box' and to communicate financial information with confidence. The flexibility of our lifelong learning pedagogy allows students to adapt the learning to their pace.
The BSFI programme maintains a strong linkage with the finance industry with knowledge content that is kept up-to-date with current developments. Our academic partners from the industry include the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute, the Financial Planning Association of Singapore (FPAS) and the Global FinTech Institute (GFI).
SUSS is a founding academic partner of the Global FinTech Institute (GFI) which administers the Chartered FinTech Professional (CFtP) qualification to promote the field of FinTech and professionalism in the FinTech industry. Being aligned in the curricula, our students may be exempted from one or more component examinations of the CFtP if the appropriate courses are passed.
Students may pursue Finance as a single major or in a combination with a minor.
