Programme Aims, Objectives and Learning outcomes

This programme aims to provide students with a sound tertiary education that will not only train their minds, develop their critical faculties, and provide them with a practical professional orientation, but also encourage them to take a life-long view of education and self-development.

The general educational objectives of the Programme are to enable students to benefit from a broad-based education as they pursue a business education with a specialisation in Applied Economics, and to develop their problem-solving, decision-making, and innovative thinking skills to handle real-life challenges. Accordingly, students will be required to study a range of general education, business and finance courses to achieve a balanced liberal arts and business education. This is consistent with UIC’s mission of providing its students with a whole person education that prepares them for lifelong learning and global citizenship. Business courses are focused on providing the knowledge and skills that are expected of today’s business and business leaders. Applied Economics courses provide an emphasis on the major speciallism.
