Our economics school curriculum has been meticulously designed to foster intellectual prowess. Our students are prepared to understand and interpret complex economic data by delving deeply into fundamental economic concepts and theories, as well as their applications, particularly in the context of the Hong Kong economy. This intellectual journey is perfectly aligned with our goal of developing skills that will enable students to critically analyse economic issues, evaluate diverse perspectives, and make informed decisions.
Furthermore, the economics curriculum serves as a cornerstone in shaping our students into LAMWOOERs - individuals who embody leadership, ardour, modesty, wisdom, optimism, originality, empathy, and responsibility.
- Leadership & Responsibility: Making informed judgments and evaluating arguments, proposals, and policies can be a foundation for leadership, as understanding the economic implications of decisions is vital for leadership roles. Also, making well-informed decisions in economics requires responsibility.
- Ardour: Developing a deep understanding and application of economic theories requires passion for the subject.
- Modesty: While not directly addressed, approaching economics requires acknowledging the complexity of real-world situations and recognizing that there’s always more to learn.
- Wisdom: Analyzing and understanding economic theories, as well as applying them to real-world situations, fosters wisdom.
- Optimism & Originality: Evaluating different perspectives and making judgments can require both optimism (in terms of potential outcomes) and originality in approach.
- Empathy: Understanding the economic consequences of decisions on communities and individuals can foster empathy, even if not directly mentioned.
