USJ Students visited the Monetary Authority of Macao on 7th November 2017

On 7th November 2017, a delegation of USJ School of Business Students, led by Visiting Professor Ian Thomson, Professor João Alex Lobo Marques and Emil Marques was received by the Deputy Director for the Research and Statistics Department of the Monetary Authority of Macao (AMCM), Ms. Helena Leong.  The students, from the Global Financial Management and Management Information Systems course, were given a brief history of the Monetary Authority and the overall future strategy of the Macao SAR government in terms of financial development.  The students got a taste of real life foreign exchange risk exposure by in the banking sector and online foreign exchange trading systems such as the Thomson – Reuters and Bloomberg Systems.

Later, the students were also toured around the AMCM dealing room where important transactions in foreign exchange were carried out by financial experts to act as the bank of last resort for the Macao MOP for the local banks in Macao.  The students were delighted by the visit and gained first hand experience in the work and policies of the Monetary Authority of Macao.  USJ is grateful for the organisation of this visit and hope future exchanges and collaborations will continue with the support of the Monetary Authority of Macao.
