Programme Description

The Bachelor of Business Administration(Hons) Programme (Concentration Undecided) is an integrated combination of general education and high quality business studies. It is designed for students who have great interest in business studies but haven’t decided on a focus field yet. Admitted students can investigate different concentrations by completing a common Year 1 curriculum and must declare their concentration by the end of Year 1.

Students can choose from one of the following six areas which they will specialize from Year 2 onwards:

  • Applied Economics Concentration
  • Entrepreneurship Concentration
  • Finance Concentration
  • Human Resources Management Concentration
  • Information Systems and e-Business Management Concentration
  • Marketing Concentration

 

The School does not set any quota and will accommodate students' choice of Concentration.

Additional graduation options include a Double Concentration within the BBA, or a Minor in a non-business discipline.

 

Career Opportunities

Graduates can explore a wide range of career options in accounting and management, advertising, banking, business analysis, global and China business, economic analysis, finance, IS auditing, management or human resources management, marketing/sales, research, systems analysis, training, and consulting.

 

Remark

Students may have the option of taking an integrated programme by extending their undergraduate study by one year, leading to the award of a Bachelor's degree in that Major plus a Diploma in Education.

For 2018 entry, the Programme will consider Extended Part of Mathematics (Module 1 or 2) as unspecified elective subject in meeting the entrance requirements and as a whole subject in score calculation.

The Programme will NOT consider any Applied Learning Subjects as an unspecified elective subject.

The Programme will consider grade E or above in Other Language subjects as unspecified elective subject.

In general, the scores for the Other Language Subjects (Category C) are converted as follows:

A=5**, B=5*, C=5, D=4, E=3

  1. Upon score calculation and compilation of interview results (if any), eligible applicants will be given a rank in the Merit Order List to the JUPAS Office. The Merit Order List will be generated according to the priority given to the list of Tie-breakers. During the admissions process, the following are the most commonly used tie-breakers by the programmes offered by the University.
     
    The most commonly used tie-breakers by the programmes offered by the University
    Tie-breakers Remarks
    HKDSE Academic Score (plus interview score, if any) Derived from the score formula of individual programme
    e.g.: 4 core subjects + 1 best/specified elective or 2 best/specified electives
    Interview Performance Applicable to School Principal's nominees / applicants with a disability / OEA applicants / regular applicants with interview
    Band Band A applicants will be ranked first then Band B, and so on.

    B (Prog. Choice 4 - 6) >
    C (Prog. Choice 7 - 10) >
    D (Prog. Choice 11 - 15) >

    HKDSE Standard Score + 1 best X Sum of scores for 4 core subjects plus 1 best/specified elective subject (Category A)
     
  2. If a programme ranks the tie-breakers as: '1' to 'HKDSE Academic Score', '2' to 'Band', '3' to 'HKDSE Standard + 1 best X Subject Score', applicants with highest HKDSE Academic Score will be ranked first. If there are two applicants having the same HKDSE Academic Score, the one who places the programme in a higher band choice will be ranked higher. If the two applicants are the same on the first 2 tie-breakers, their HKDSE Standard + 1 best X Subject Score will be compared, the one with higher HKDSE Standard + 1 best X Subject Score will be given a higher rank, and so on.

 

 

Note:

As programmes select students not only on the basis of the HKDSE results, the actual results of the students admitted to each programme may vary from year to year (depending on the overall results achieved by applicants in a particular year, the number of applicants applying to the programme, changes in selection criteria, etc.). Please be reminded that information listed above is for reference ONLY and is subject to change, and should NOT be used to predict the chance of admission to any programme.
