Overview

The Economics programme at Beijing Normal University - Hong Kong Baptist University United International College aim to:

  • provide the state-of-the-art knowledge in various research areas of the discipline to students;
  • to allow students to understand the research strength of their division and on-going research projects of their professors. This would stimulate the thought of students and facilitate their development of independent research areas. Furthermore, through the discussion in individual seminars, students may obtain a better understanding of the research strength of individual faculty members. This would enhance their matching of thesis supervisor at later stage of their study.

Education

A team of staff members with professional training in research and PhD degrees obtained from internationally recognized universities will be responsible to supervise the students’ research projects and to teach the related research courses in their fields of study. 

In addition, visiting professor in the field of accounting, finance, economics, and business from Hong Kong and oversea universities will be invited to deliver research workshops to our students in the programmes.
