ECON

Short Description

The BBA Economics (ECON) program focuses on the use of economics for sound business decisions. The curriculum of the BBA program has more business core courses compared to BSc in Economics and Finance, allowing students to have multi-disciplinary perspective: to pursue a second major in other business areas or more flexible minor options. All students are required to finish a project/paper before they graduate.

Economics is a social science that studies people's decisions under constraints. It offers expertise in topics such as behavior of consumers and firms, efficiency and equity of markets, economic growth, business cycles, international trade and finance, taxation and public policies, etc.

Combining the analytical nature of economics with other business disciplines, students will have wide range of career choice in different business fields.

Remarks:

The Year 1 curricula of JS5311 ECON and JS5300 B&M are identical. JS5311 allows students who have a special interest in BBA ECON to directly enter the major. Those admitted into JS5300 may apply to enter ECON or other business majors via the major selection exercises held at the end of the first three semesters. Students interested in ECON should include either or both JS5311 and JS5300 in their program choices.

On top of the direct intake quota, at least half of the ECON program seats are reserved for students admitted into JS5300 Business and Management to enter the program via the major selection exercise.

Selected Band A and Band B applicants who show talents and potentials for business study will be invited to engagement activities or interviews organized by HKUST Business School in May-June 2018.
