About HKU Art and Economics

People who think openly and creatively are in great demand, especially if they can also transform their ideas into new solutions and business opportunities. As a HKU Art and Economics graduate, you learn how to use your creativity in a businesslike and socially engaged way. You’re trained to become a creative entrepreneur and to hold management positions in the cultural and creative sector.

During your studies, you get straight to work in practice: learning by doing. We place high value on your personal development, focusing on who you are, what you can do and what you want. There’s also plenty of scope for carving out your own study pathway.


Besides a Bachelor’s course, HKU Art and Economics also offers minors and a Master’s course. See the options below.
