ECONOMICS

Short Description

CUHK Economics was established in 1963, the same year the CUHK was established. We are the only department that offers pure economics programmes in Hong Kong.

Like many top universities around the world, CUHK Economics is an indispensable part of the Faculty of Social Science but not part of the business school.

We provide in-depth training in theories, mathematics, statistics, quantitative skills and economic modeling skills.

Around one-fifth of our graduates pursue postgraduate studies in top universities, a significant fraction of them become professional economists or college professors. Many other graduates become entrepreneurs, consultants, data analysts, bankers and teachers, etc.
