CUHK Launches New MBA Electives in Risk Management for Banks and Project Finance

New courses to help students meet emerging challenges in the financial sector

The Chinese University of Hong Kong's CUHK Business School has launched two new finance-oriented MBA courses. The new electives cover topics in risk management for banks and project finance.

The new courses were designed to help students meet emerging challenges in the financial sector, according to the school.

The first, Risk Management for Banks, is aimed at students who want to work in either risk management or in the financial industry. It will address traditional risks as well as other relevant risks, such as credit valuation adjustment (CVA) and liquidity.

"The course will address the equation of the risk profile of a financial institution and the amount of capital that it needs," according to the elective's webpage.

The second new course is called Project Finance. This elective will provide a holistic overview of this type of financing, which tends to be utilized in long-term, large-scale infrastructure and industry projects. It will help students understand how to properly structure and mitigate risks in these types of transactions, and address internal bank issues and other factors related to project finance.

Included will be case studies on projects developed in Europe, Asia, and other parts of the world in a variety of different fields.

Both new elective courses are part of CUHK's MBA concentration in China Business Finance.
