Jointly offered by the HKU Business School and the Faculty of Law, the Bachelor of Business Administration (Law) and Bachelor of Laws [BBA(Law)&LLB] integrated double-degree programme blends two strategic disciplines into a single programme for the bright and highly motivated. It is an excellent choice for students seeking a broader education with parallel concentration on legal and business studies. Graduates of the programme will be awarded two degrees-BBA(Law) by the HKU Business School, and LLB by the Faculty of Law. The LLB degree is a basic requirement needed to pursue a legal career. After successful completion of the LLB programme, students may apply for admission to the Postgraduate Certificate in Laws (PCLL) programme provided that they meet the relevant admission requirements.
Students may declare a major in Business or a professional core in Accounting. The programme with a professional core in Accounting has been accredited by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA) and CPA Australia. Graduates can be qualified as professional accountants by successfully completing the HKICPA Qualification Programme (QP) and obtaining the relevant work experience. They are also eligible to obtain exemptions from professional examinations organised by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and be qualified as members of the ACCA by successfully completing the examinations and obtaining relevant working experience.
Alternatively, graduates will be exempted from all the 6 Foundation Level exams and will be eligible to apply for the CPA Australia Associate membership.
*Please note that the fifth year of this double-degree programme operates on a self-financing basis, and the fees are therefore slightly higher than the usual undergraduate fees. Those requiring financial assistance can apply for non-means tested loans, repayable at an interest rate to be determined by the Government.
