Mr. Thomas Huang (student of 2017-18)
Studying at Hong Kong Baptist University provides many opportunities for students. In addition to the rigorous courses that combine theory and practice, the program also introduces platforms for students to network with top companies, distinguished alumni and inspirational speakers. I have had the privilege of building many great international friendships and have expanded my global mindset and professional network.

It is really an amazing experience studying at MSc in Applied Economics (MScAEcon) at Hong Kong Baptist University. All professors in the Department of Economics are nice and approachable. Most importantly, we indeed learned something meaningful and valuable from the lectures in various ways. Some courses are taught in traditional way, from which we gain professional knowledge. Some courses are more practical in nature, through which practical skills are mastered. Recall that members of our group and I have spent a lot of time in the computer laboratory for working on the project for the econometrics course. The team work experience of this course allows us to recognize how to collect data, how to formulate an empirical model and how to test the model with statistical software. It’s a wonderful experience to all of us that we are able to do analysis that we are interested in on our own.
Miss Funmilayo Abidoye (graduate of 2015-16)
HKBU Masters in Applied Economics (MScAEcon) as a natural choice for my postgraduate study is due to the program structure which promises to equip graduates with analytical skills and techniques for analyzing business and real world problems from the economic perspective. True to its (MScAEcon) promise, I was able to learn various analytical skills during my study which enables me to perform my present job as a researcher excellently. I also got to learn about economic growth, especially, the dynamics of the rapid economic growth experienced by China over the past three decades and the importance of culture in economic policy formulation. As an international student in Hong Kong, it is an expensive city to live in, at the same time, it is a great place to be. Interactions with my classmates exposed me to a whole new culture. Likewise, the professors are approachable and always willing to help. The library and computer laboratories are well equipped. All these enhanced my learning experience, ensured that my study period at HKBU was great and also prepared me for the future.
