This course provides a practical grounding in economic theory with a particular focus on its application to the Chinese economy and its business environment. It includes elements of quantitative analysis, organisational behaviour, management, computing and strategic problem solving skills.
It also provides an understanding of theoretical and applied microeconomics needed for China's continued industrial development with a focus on the modern business enterprise and its operating environment.
A combined management and economics degree has enormous prestige with foreign companies, whether in research or in general management. Knowledge of western economics together with a clear understanding of the problems facing the Chinese economy will also be very attractive to planners in government and the private sector.
