I guess you have got the wrong ideas.

People here suggest that you should choose neither of them.

I can tell you that HKU Econ & Fin has a bad reputation in HK. I know a professor of HKU who used to teach Economics, he told me the truth that HKU Econ & Fin students are rejected right away by the banks. You must not overlook the fact that the main stream economics/finance require students to excel maths. Reflect upon the issue twice before you make any decisions.

I am studying BBA-JD in CUHK merely because I didn't do Pure maths last year which renders me unable to get into any decent schools to study Econ in UK and I think BBA is a suitable choice in that I can have more time to work on maths. Fortunately I have got an A in GCE pure maths this year. eventually I am able to go UK now. I see many brilliant EAS students go to USC, Umich, Ivy League. To be frank, those who stay in HK arent, on average, as smart as those who go to USA/Canada (in terms of both academic result and different aspects)

naaa i don't mean that...
I luv hku, i studied in hku b4!

but i just don't think E&F and ibba are any special courses that one should put for their first choice.
(however as long as you're st ...
I graduated from E&F HKU. I'm working in an European i-bank now. I do not suggest you to go for E&F HKU. The courses are really shxt...... studying oversea is the best choice

I know a lot of smart ppl who didn't study overseas; on the other hand, I know a handful of people attending top univs for undergrad/grad, and they are just so-so.
That one conclusion can be made without reservation is most ppl who can go aboard is rich; and that's all. Maybe they're good but then nothing makes you superior to your peer just bcoz your family is rich.
Schools are as good as they are and you don't have to play them up/down. People will know. You know, I know and I believe OP knows as well.

Besides, what you have mentioned is simply not the truth. Employers may pick LSE E&F over HKU E&F, but definitely not for local unis. Plus, I know somebody from CityU got into SCB IG, so does it mean employers favour CityU?

Back to OP's question, not sure what type of "considerations" you have now, and in general people don't really distinguish these 2 programs (believe it or not). If you like HKU, go for E&F; if you're into CUHK, go to BBA. It is also possible for you to switch your major after like spending one year, you find your interest is something different.

Er... OK yes, if you have $$$, take advice above and try Columbia/MIT/Yale/....

I agree

I don't mean every student is better in overseas school I am comparing those EAS students. I know you understand my arguments.

It is my first person experience. We know different people and I guess it would be possible for us to come up with different conclusions....

I think it makes sense to say "reputation" does play a big role in labour market.
It would be reasonable to say what others think about is irrelevant if you've got the talent. Yet,  it is sometime the "bad reputation" deprives you of the opportunity of being interviewed. Again, this argument is a general one.

I guess this is a topic worth discussing

networking opportunities with people who have rich family backgrounds may make overseas students a lil bit superior? i doubt if any celebrities/billionaires in hk wouldnt send their children abroad.

Certainly it doesnt. All that means= Commercial banks don't screen off CityU students right away. HKU/CU/UST have their solid brandname among banks in hk, so surely u wont weigh cityu hk against any of them.

'economics' just looks a little bit more appealing when u compare that with BBA in title of course. at least u choose one that is more likely to inspire u and make u think

am i correct?

Early Admissions Scheme??

i think that's when their CE score is high enough that they dont have to write A level and can go straight into U.

Probably you got me wrong.

The example I used was just to argue paul's idea about "HKU E&F" is bad, according to the professor there (at least in labour market, i dun agree).

Actually I am not sure about that because HK HRs love "business graduates". (I believe hedgie will say something but that's what I observe, even for reputable companies).

I am not from BBA and have never took any related courses, so I am kind of neutral about that. And I believe if you want to learn, opportunities are everywhere and not limited to your major. Studying econ (actually any subject) doesnt guarantee you becoming smarter.

Er... yes maybe you are right. Probably we are talking about different samples.

And yes, graduates from overseas reputable unis are highly sought in the labour market; that's true that I will never argue about this.

I guess nothing is impossible. Yet, as a matter of fact, I would suggest one to go study abroad as long as possible

And.... BBA really sucks... I am studying business now... and I have decided to go Warwick and study Economics and International studies

Things suck if you think they are. Trust me, many people find their major suck... (including me )

As a CUHK IBBA & PAC double major student,
my comment is that I will not choose IBBA if I can choose once again.
