If you are going to travel that far, why not just do an Executive MBA Kellogg-HKUST? ranked #3 in the world or something like that..You get the Asian experience either way.

The MS in Global Finance is "only" USD 55,000, whereas the EMBA is USD 93,600. What do you think: If you work in finance, could an MS in Finance have a similar value for your career as an Executive MBA?

True, but tuition is always paid by the employer in these executive programs, so if you can get in, the cost is not an issue.

That executive MBA must be extremely hard to get into,

so I think M.S. Global Finance is a better choice especially for someone interested in Finance and not Management

EMBA and M.S. two totally different degrees with different types of students. The fair comparison would be M.S. Global Finance NYU/HKUST versus M.S. Investment Mangement HK UST.

not too close with msc inv mgmt people actually. mba's and them share some classes (derivatives, etc.) but i feel they tend to be very focused, quantitative people. i don't mean it negative but it get the impression that they are a bit "nerdy". if i had to generalize i would say that they want to become hugely successful traders whereas mba's might want to run the trading department in a bank ;-)
