Established in 1970, the Department of Economics offers both undergraduate and post-graduate courses. Undergraduates can either study towards a BBA (Hon) programme with concentration in Applied Economics or the BSocSC (Hons) in China Studies with concentration in Economics, with pathways leading to MPhil, MSc and PhD. Students can also enrol in the courses we offer for the MBA programme, the Master of Social Sciences (Contemporary China Studies) or the Master of Public Administration of the Faculty of Social Sciences.

Our faculty members are known for conducting in-depth research in various economic fields, with many researching topics directly linked to China's economic resurgence. Always faithful to the School's tradition of engaging with the community, faculty members regularly offer professional views, opinions and advices to the media, businesses, or the public sector.

The Department promotes students involvement in university life, calling on them to organise activities and to participate in functions at the school or the University, as well as in inter-university activities.
