NTU Singapore is launching a new four-year Bachelor of Applied Computing in Finance degree programme to equip undergraduates with deep domain knowledge in finance and strong technological and analytical skillsets. 

Jointly offered by Nanyang Business School and School of Computer Science and Engineering, NTU, Singapore, the programme will see faculty from both schools co-developing and co-teaching several newly designed integrated courses such as Blockchain in Finance, Machine Learning in Finance, and Product Management. During their year-long industry-based applied research project co-designed and co-supervised by both schools, students will get to design and develop financial applications based on problem statements issued by industry partners. Students will also undergo a 20-week professional internship as part of experiential learning, and can apply for broadening and deepening electives to continue their internship for another 10 weeks during the summer holidays.

The programme will commence in August 2024. More info
