Our curriculum is designed to help students master economic analysis, use it creatively to find solutions to problems, and develop confidence in analysing issues and answering questions relevant to their work.
Flexibility is a key character of the programme - students have a number of elective courses to choose from, and courses of varying blends of abstraction and applicability are available. In addition to courses offered by the MEcon Programme, students may also choose elective courses from the Master of Accounting (MAcct), Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Finance (MFin), Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSc(BA)) and Master of Science in Marketing (MSc(Mktg)) programmes under the advice and approval of the Programme Directors concerned.
The MEcon Programme is most suitable for three types of students:
Although an undergraduate degree in economics or related disciplines is not a pre-requisite, applicants should have good quantitative skills or possess knowledge of first-year college calculus.
Meeting Venue: Admiralty Town Centre or Cyberport Campus or HKU Main Campus
Meeting Time: Weekday daytime or evenings, or Saturdays
The curriculum shall extend over a minimum of one academic year and a maximum of two academic years for full-time study. Students at normal progress shall finish the programme in one academic year.
