The aim of this programme is to exploit the synergy between accounting and finance and prepare students to become competent accountants with a sound knowledge of finance.

The financial services industry is a major pillar of modern business. It deals with the efficient flow of funds between various business units.

This programme provides a well-rounded business education and an opportunity to specialise in financial services. Students develop strong analytical skills and critical thinking, which are gained through rigorous training in finance and the associated disciplines.

Programme Characteristics

Our highly qualified academic staff members share their business experiences and research findings with students. Students are able to apply what they have learned through internships.

Our programmes integrate the latest technological knowledge related to business into the curriculum. New concepts such as fintech and big data will be included in specific accounting and finance selected subjects.

Each student who joins the Professional Mentoring programme is assigned a mentor who is an experienced industry executive. Mentors provide advice to students to plan for their future careers.

Subject to availability, BBA students can spend a semester studying at another university overseas or in the Chinese mainland, with the credits counted towards their PolyU degree.

Work-Integrated Education (WIE)

To graduate, every student must complete 100 hours (3 training credits) of WIE. The School offers opportunities for students to work in firms in Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland during either the spring semester or the summer. These and other forms of work experience count towards the WIE requirement.

Characteristics of Scheme-based Admission

Students first follow a common curriculum under the Scheme.

It offers students approximately one year to identify their area(s) of interest and career aspirations, which facilitates their Major programme selection.

The decision to admit a student to a Major programme will be made by the School based on the student’s choice and overall GPA of Year One study. Students will be asked to rank their choices of Major programme (from the most preferred one to the least) during semester 2 of their Year One study for the School’s consideration and approval.

The number of students admitted to BBA (Hons) in Accountancy, BBA (Hons) in Accounting and Finance and BBA (Hons) in Financial Services will be capped respectively at 60%, 40% and 40% of the number of students in the respective year.

JUPAS applicants with a DSE score of 25.0 or above in their best 5 subjects are guaranteed to be admitted to their preferred Major programme.
