Bachelor of Business Administration - Applied Economics Concentration 工商管理學士 - 應用經濟學專修

BBA(ECON)

Short Description

The Bachelor of Business Administration(Hons) Programme (Applied Economics Concentration) offers you broad-based knowledge and technical skills – a powerful combination that employers want nowadays. As our name suggests, we emphasise the connection between theory and application in the industry. Besides traditional economics core courses that allow students to analyze individual markets and macroeconomies, we provide you with updated economic knowledge, skills and InfoTech in data analysis that are practical in the industry via both curricular and co-curricular learning activities, including workshops, seminars, and internships. Our training also paves way to graduate studies, which are commonly required for further career advancement.

Additional graduation options include a Double Concentration within the BBA, or a Minor in a non-business discipline.

Career Opportunities

Graduates can develop a wide range of career options in business and government sectors. In addition to the likely employment for BBA graduates in management, marketing/sales, accounting and banking, many advanced career opportunities in financial and commercial sectors, such as asset management, credit analyst, risk management, treasury, and compliance, require specifically a degree in economics or other relevant disciplines in finance, law and science. These jobs usually require both technical and broad-based knowledge that the Applied Economics degree offers.

Some of our graduates have also pursued their careers as research analysts in business strategy development, public policy analysts for consulting firms, government and public utilities, as well as teachers of economics or liberal studies.

Remarks:

Students may have the option of taking an integrated programme by extending their undergraduate study by one year, leading to the award of a bachelor's degree in that Major plus a Diploma in Education.
