In Year 2, students can specialize in one of two themes – Economics or Financial Services – to gain a deeper understanding of their areas of interest.
Year 2 students opting for the Economics theme will learn various economic theories and how to apply those theories to solve real-life problems, while those taking the Financial Services theme will acquire knowledge in the domains of financial analysis, financial planning, and investment management.

GBA Tour, July 2023
As part of the Inter-school Entrepreneurship Workshop, 10 students from the Division of Economics and Business accompanied a group of secondary school students to visit Rainbow Shopping Mall and an electronic manufacturing factory in Dongguan. The interesting tour provided the students with the opportunity to explore the consumer culture, shopping trends, and innovative business ideas in the Greater Bay Area.
Students took a guided tour on the factory floor where they observed different stages of the production processes – starting from component assembly to final product testing and packaging. Also, they had the chance to ask questions to the management of the factory, which helped them gain insights into the challenges and opportunities of the electronic manufacturing industry in mainland.
