Students have to complete and pass a total of 13 Course Units (CUs) in order to graduate with the MITB degree and the Financial Services Analytics track certificate. One CU is equivalent to a full term course with 12 course sessions. Each course session entails 3 hours of in-class time plus additional out-of-class time. Some courses are one full course unit (36 hours of in-class time over 12 course sessions). Some courses are one half course unit (18 hours of in-class time, spread over 6 or 7 sessions).
In addition, students must complete the SMU Postgraduate Professional Development Series of seminars, workshops and social activities. Students from different postgraduate programmes will have the opportunity to interact through these activities, further enhancing the SMU postgraduate experience by expanding your network.
