Global Business Economics Programme (GBE)
Global Business Economics Programme (GBE) is a new stream under the Economics major. Students will study managerial economics to prepare them for work in the field of international business. The programme will familiarize students with how business is done in Asia and Europe.
This stream is formed from a bipartite agreement between Copenhagen Business School (CBS) and School of Management and Economics (SME). Every year, SME will select 10 year 1 students to join the GBE programme. In the spring term of their Year 3, these students will go on exchange for one semester to CBS to study with their counterparts in the International Business in Asia (IBA) programme, forming a cohort together. In the following fall term, both GBE and IBA students will come to CUHK-Shenzhen to study for one semester. Students will spend their last term of study at their home institutions.
Different from regular exchange programs, students in GBE programme will study cohort-specific courses together with their fellow IBA students while at each institution. Some specialized activities such as company visits and guest lectures will also be arranged.
First year cGPA and interview. Selection will be based 80% on the cGPA of the first year and 20% on the interview.
Students sign up for the program during the major declaration period. After SME screening of all the applications, potential candidates will be invited to the interview.
Students will study a Business Economics curriculum. Required and elective courses are similar to the other Economics streams, but with some additional emphasis on management, to prepare students for work in the business world. While at CBS, the GBE students will take two required courses and two electives courses. Please consult the GBE study scheme for details. Check: https://registry.cuhk.edu.cn/zh-hans/basic/170.
