The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in partnership with NYU's Stern School of Business, offers a one-year program for experienced professionals to sharpen their knowledge of the financial world and expand their global network.

Taught in New York, Hong Kong, and Beijing, the 12-month, 10 module program is an executive degree, with classes taught mostly during weekends.
