Economics analyzes the behavior of consumption, production, exchange, and their interactions with each other in domestic and global settings. Through the study of economics, students acquire modern analytical, empirical, and quantitative skills, and enhance their communicative skills-the requisite abilities to understand and analyze effectively economic problems and issues of today. Our major provides rigorous training that equips students with the requisite knowledge and skills to understand economic problems and analyze policy issues from local and global perspectives.
This major provides three streams as follows:
- Professional Accounting
The major is designed to provide students with a firm foundation in accounting and solid preparation for professional practice.
In addition to technical accounting/business knowledge, the major focuses on training leadership skills, analytical and problem solving skills, and interpersonal and communication skills. Professionalism, ethics and information technology are integrated throughout the curriculum. Moreover, the curriculum is designed to seek maximum exemption or full recognition from international professional accounting bodies, such as the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants(HKICPA), Association of Chartered Certified Accountants(ACCA) and Chinese Institute of Certified Public Accountants(CICPA).
The objective of our finance major is to equip our students with the analytical skills, practical experiences and global vision needed to meet the challenges and succeed in the banking and finance industry. Students will gain deep understanding of the complex interrelationships among the world economies in terms of the flow of goods, services, and funds, the functions and operations of financial markets and institutions, and the interactions among them in a globalized context. This major may well be the first of its kind in the Chinese mainland, and offers solid interdisciplinary training in economics and finance in the context of the global economy. As key global financial centers, the continuing development of Shenzhen and Hong Kong will ensure this major attracts students from Hong Kong, China and the rest of the world.
