ALUMNI & STUDENTS STORIES
LIU Wei, (PhD, 2023)
Dr. BAI Jie (PhD, 2023)
LAI Wanting, Sophia (UG, 2023)
Of course, there were many more opportunities, like part-time jobs, scholarships, exchange experience, etc., that I acquired within these years. I feel sincerely grateful to all the professors and staff who have been working so faithfully in the department. I would still keep myself trying and endeavoring in this field and wish to achieve more and more and more.
ZHANG Chen (PhD, 2022)
The Ph.D. program in Economics at Lingnan University is my ideal doctoral program. I am very grateful for the high-quality academic environment that the Department of Economics has provided me. The Department of Economics is a small and close-knit community. The administrative staff are professional and supportive. Without their assistance, my research would not have been smooth. The professors and students here exhibit pure and sincere attitudes towards academics, and we can freely exchange our research ideas. The professors are also very willing to assist students. During the past three years, I worked closely with my supervisor Prof. HONG Fuhai, and completed two promising research projects under his guidance. Besides, the department often hosts academic seminars and invites top scholars in Hong Kong to present their cutting-edge research. The seminar series provides postgraduate students with an opportunity to communicate with leading scholars and inspire our own research.
Aside from my academic experiences at LU, I lived a simple, happy, and fulfilling life. The university is not far from downtown, which makes life convenient. The location is also not too close to downtown, so I can enjoy hiking with my friends in a nearby country park on weekends. After graduation, I often reminisce about the lovely people at LU and the golden time I had there. Last but not least, from my viewpoint, Lingnan University's Ph.D. in Economics would be a worthwhile option for you if you're thinking about pursuing a doctorate.
CAO Yiran, Carol (PhD, 2022)
My three-year PhD study in Economics equipped me with solid research methodology as well as professional skills. Although the study journey was stressful and challenging by nature, I was fortunate to work with my supportive and considerate supervisors who always believed in me, offered me as much support as possible, and granted me flexibility in developing my research agenda. The rigorous academic training I acquired from my supervisors and cross-institutional courses laid a theoretical foundation for pursuing my academic career in Industrial Organization. In addition to the topic-defense and research finding seminars, the department also encouraged me to present my works in Brownbag seminars, where I received valuable feedback from professors in the department. Meanwhile, the department offered weekly academic seminars on various frontier topics in which students could interact with intelligent and passionate professors from other universities.
I would recommend this program to people who want to pursue an academic career in Economics. Professors in this department are very nice, and they publish papers in high-level academic journals. Students who study in this program would receive rigorous academic training, professional academic guidance, and strong support for research endeavors.
Meng Baosi Bonnie (UG, 2022)
So proud and grateful I am to be an economics major at Lingnan University. At our department, I was exposed to a wide range of courses and seminars covering in-depth economics knowledge and the most edge-cutting insights. These granted me both solid knowledge and, more importantly, a strong and rigorously-logical mindset. I benefitted a lot from the rich opportunities that our department provided to me. During the summer RA internship, I was able to get hands-on academic research experience and work closely with professors. The Best Economic Student Award brought me closer to my goal of doing field studies and going deeper into emerging industries. I will always feel a deep sense of gratitude to the respectable and lovely professors, considerate and supportive staff, as well as my dear fellow peers. Altogether, they emboldened me to achieve professional and tackle any complex problems in today’s global society. Fruitful days at Lingnan passed quickly, but these golden old days will continue to empower me to serve society and realize my value in the future to come.
YUAN Chenxuan, Olivia (UG, 2022)
Participating in this summer internship program offered by the Department of Economics was an unforgettable experience for me. Under the guidance of Professor Liu Sibo, I got to know how research takes place and how researchers conduct themselves. By searching information, I understood that Google is not omnipotent. To find valuable and reliable information about government laws on certain issue, I gradually got familiar with the structure of the local Legislative Councils websites and other relevant official websites.
KATUNZE Miriam Nabawanga (PhD, 2021)
My name is Miriam, and I've been a PhD student in Economics at Lingnan University for the past three years. Pursuing my PhD with the Department of Economics has provided me with a one-of-a-kind experience and perspective that has exceeded my expectations. In my first term, I remember telling one of the helpful department secretaries about the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be provided with all the resources required to carry out my research. For example, the department purchased additional software for my research, for which I am grateful. The enlightening seminars and excellent research assistance were the highlights of my studies. I appreciate the enormous support from the heads of the department during my study especially Prof Larry Qiu, who provided an opportunity to present my research more than the expected or required times. These presentation opportunities improved my work greatly and enhanced my chances for conference selection. As such, I have presented my work in two powerful and career-transforming conferences as a result of the department’s input. I believe that this degree is the first step to many career achievements in the future. I encourage future students to pursue their next Economics degree with the Department of Economics, Lingnan University.
CHANDRA Sonal (UG, 2021)
My love-affair with Economics started when I was 14 and blossomed when I joined Lingnan University in 2017. I am graduating this year not just with a degree but a ton of wonderful memories, skills, and hunger to dive deeper into the field.
Economics at Lingnan University is more of an inter-disciplinary major. A student majoring in Economics at Lingnan University gets exposed to a variety of disciplines not only within Economics but in Social Sciences generally. This broadens the horizon of students and equips them to approach any topic in the field of Economics from a wider perspective.
Moreover, the professors in the Economics department have always been supportive and encouraged me to ask deeper and sharper questions regarding any given subject. The small class sizes at Lingnan University allow for close student-teacher interaction which helped me a lot in seeking guidance and bouncing off ideas with the professors. The enriched learning experience at Lingnan has further fuelled my interest in the field of Economics.
Thanks to all the quantitative and qualitative skills I have learned at Lingnan, I will pursue an MPhil in Economics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Zhang Fuze, Amber (UG, 2021)
I was honoured with the chance to be an intern in the Department of Economics this summer and had an unforgettable experience. Under the supervision of Professor Gregory William Whitten, I searched out case studies for economics courses to help him with his future teaching. This task exposed me to varieties of recent news and taught me more on different views about hot topics around the world, so that I could keep up with times and develop my analytical abilities.
OSPANOVA Aida (PhD, 2019)
Now looking back to my PhD journey at Lingnan University, I can tell it was the most challenging yet rewarding experience in my life. Professional guidance and support from my supervisors and Department helped me a lot to accomplish my study. I had an opportunity to choose and do research in the area of my interest.
ANADUAKA Uchechi Shirley (PhD, 2019)
The Economics program at LingnanU provided me with the opportunity to develop a clearer view of my research interests in Micro-Development economics. The facilities provided are well equipped with the latest statistical software to ensure the students have all the resources they need for their research. The departmental and visiting professors were very helpful when I encountered some problems with my research. Interacting with them during personal meetings and departmental seminars made my research experience more meaningful. The department also supported me to attend important training workshops.
