Hi everyone!

I have received offers from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and  the University of Warwick for Economics. (For UST, I am planning to do Economics after my first year).

I am having difficulty choosing which one to go to, as I personally want to stay in Hong Kong, but my parents think that Warwick is better than UST in  terms of ranking and job prospects.

Can someone please give me some advice, especially those in finance/banking and other economics-related industries?

Thanks a lot!

Ranking:
UST hv a higher ranking in business (for their MBA)
Warwick is generally ranked higher in Econ for their research (for master/PhD)

both are not that relevant for UG study


- Warwick is oversea study which give more exposure <---- important especially for MNC
- UST will be much cheaper than Warwick, and that really depends much on ur financial condition
- Going to Warwick = you are not good enough for oxbridge or even G5, but the same cannot be said for UST
- If u want to want in UK after graduation, warwick is the only choice.
- UST is likely to have a larger local network in HK
- In HK, UST and Warwick are both target for finance and seems not differ much in recuirtment  <--- all depends on one's interview at the end

UST's ranking rests totally on full time MBA and their Kellogg EMBA course, by FT which heavily measured the salary level which was screwed by Kellogg EMBA students.
However, I believe studying and working with international students will give you a better experience unless you target yourself to join Hxnderson, Chxungkong, Nxw World after graduation, where you will mainly work with Hong Kong/China colleagues.    If you pursue academic route, it will be much better as Warwick got a much stronger reputation academically.
