BA Economics is a four-year degree programme that provide students with a strong foundation and understanding of core microeconomic and macroeconomic theory. The programme is enriched by the provision of empirical skills that are key to applying economic thinking in our increasingly data-driven world. Besides the rigorous training in both theory and econometrics, students are given the opportunity to select elective courses from a wide range of electives in economics to fit their likely targets of interest, ranging from Labour market issues, Health Economics, Environmental Economics, Financial Economics to Development Economics, and many more.
The general objective of this programme is to provide a broader perspective to our students in the study of economics and to increase their appreciation, understanding and analysis of economic issues. The programme also aims to provide students with excellent analytical and problem solving skills suitable for academic discipline as well as transferable skills which are required in the work place.
