Bachelor of Economics / Bachelor of Economics and Finance 經濟學學士 / 經濟金融學學士

BEcon/BEcon&Fin

Short Description

The BEcon and BEcon&Fin programmes share the same programme code.  Students are required to enrol in either one of the programmes on admission.

The BEcon programme trains students in economic theories, statistical tools, the application of theories to solve practical economic problems in trade, banking, the labour market and evaluation of the regional economic performances of China, Hong Kong and other economies.  Students will be furnished with solid theoretical and empirical economic knowledge to analyse and understand human behaviour and social interactions.  The programme allows students a high degree of flexibility in planning their future career specialisation.  Students can also declare a minor or a second major if they are able to meet the course's requirements.

The BEcon&Fin is a double-major programme designed to meet the interests of students who are seeking a balanced study of both economics and finance.  The programme recognises the significance of economics both in its own right and as a foundation for the study of finance, and the significance of finance as a career path for students in Hong Kong.  Students will receive solid training in economic and financial theories and applications.  They will be equipped with the skills to analyse human behaviour and social interaction, as well as to solve problems in financial institutions.

Calculation of scores for applicants with more than 1 sitting in HKDSE Examination

In general, most of the programmes offered by HKU consider the best results achieved by candidates in different combination of sittings, except for a few programmes which only consider the latest results.  Few programmes may also impose a penalty on HKDSE repeaters.  The policy on the calculation of scores in combined sittings of HKDSE for the 2019-20 exercise will be finalized at a later stage, which will be posted on our website https://www.hku.hk/dse.
