To be eligible for admission to the Master of Economics Programme, a candidate must:
hold a Bachelor's degree of this University; or a qualification of equivalent standard from this University or another comparable institution accepted for this purpose;
obtain statements from two referees, regarding the suitability for the Programme; and
obtain a TOEFL/IELTS score* if he/she is not from an English teaching university.
* A score of 577 or above (paper-based test), 233 (computer-based test), or 90 (internet-based test) in TOEFL, or a minimum overall band of 7 with no subtest lower than 6.5 in IELTS is required.
GMAT/GRE scores are not required, but a good GMAT/GRE score will be favorably considered and can be helpful for marginal cases.
Applicants may be invited for an interview.
We welcome overseas applicants. Candidates who wish to be admitted based on a qualification from a university outside Hong Kong, where the language of teaching is not English, are required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL*). The International English Language Testing System (IELTS*) is also accepted as an equivalent standard. Upon successful application, overseas students will need to arrange their own student visas.
The proposed tuition fee for the 2017-2018 intake is HK$210,000, subject to the final approval of the University. Full-time students are required to pay the tuition fee in two equal installments in one year, whereas part-time students are required to pay the tuition fee in four equal instalments in two years, irrespective of the number of courses taken in each semester.
