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.

Remarks

1)# As the 2019/20 Academic Year is the start of the 2019-2022 triennium for which UGC-funded programmes are still subject to the Government's and the Legislative Council's approval, the number of student intake places shown in this web page is indicative only and subject to change or confirmation at a later date.

2) 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.

We adopt a holistic approach in selecting applicants on individual merits. Applicants are required to meet the University entrance requirements, English Language requirements and Programme entrance requirements (if any).
