ECON

Short DescriptionUpdated

The BBA Economics (ECON) program focuses on economic reasoning for sound business decisions. Compare to our BSc Economics and Finance program, the BBA ECON students take more core courses in various business disciplines which equip them with a multi-disciplinary perspective to analyze problems and recommend solutions. Students are required to complete a research-based capstone course to demonstrate their mastery application of knowledge and analytical skills.

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.

Our flexible curriculum allows students to pursue an additional major in other business areas. Students may also pursue a minor offered by other Schools at HKUST. The interdisciplinary insight, combining the analytical nature of economics give BBA ECON graduates an edge in a range of career choice across 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 terms. Students interested in ECON should include either or both JS5311 and JS5300 in their program choices. Please click here for details of JS5300 Business and Management.

Selected Band A 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 2019.
