    Aims

    The economics curriculum aims to equip students with a solid foundation in economics with an applied orientation so that they can serve at the managerial/administrative level in commerce, industry, education and the financial sectors, as well as government agencies. On successful completion of the programme, the graduates are expected to be able to (a) demonstrate broad knowledge in economics; (b) apply economic theories to analyse real-world situations and problems; (c) apply relevant methodology and quantitative skills in economics analysis; and (d) think analytically and critically about economics and related issues.

    Career prospects

    Many of the economics graduates are employed at the managerial/administrative level in commerce, industry, education and the financial sectors, as well as government agencies. There is a variety of jobs available to the economics graduate in Hong Kong: in the civil service, public utilities, education, the mass media and commerce.

    Further studies

    Opportunities are available for the graduates of this programme to advance to postgraduate studies in Hong Kong and abroad. Some students will continue to study for a master’s degree by coursework or research after graduation; and others will pursue postgraduate studies part-time while working full-time. Some choose to study further in the fields of economics, finance and statistics according to their career plans.
