Overseas Entrepreneurship Programme (Shanghai and Suzhou)
To allow students to have a better understanding of the economics, history and culture of China and see how economic concepts can be applied in real life situations, the Economics Department organises educational trips to Shanghai and Suzhou. Another purpose of the trip is to cultivate the entrepreneur mindset in students and allow them to see and exploit economic opportunities in China should they decide to become an entrepreneur in the future.

“I have gained insights of China's glorious history and rich heritage. The trip to Shanghai and Suzhou was very helpful in aiding my understanding of the world’s involvement in China. The group business proposal was also an enriching experience as I learned how to develop business ideas targeted at the Chinese market.”

“The thought of studying a whole new subject was initially intimidating, but the novice approach taken by PJC Economics Department in helping the students understand new economics concepts and applying skills in essays and case studies definitely made it seem so much easier. Lectures were complemented with discussions during tutorial sessions in class to clarify our doubts and check our understanding. Overall, it allowed me to gain analytical skills and appreciate Economics as a subject that correlates with events in the world.”

“Being a Science student, I initially found it hard to study Economics as I did not know the skills involved in answering essays and case studies. However, under the guidance of my dedicated Economic tutor, I learned how to effectively apply economic concepts to my answers. I am grateful towards the entire Economics team in PJC for preparing us thoroughly for the A Levels. From revision lectures to mock exams to useful revision packages, they have done a superb job and instilled confidence in me. Upon submitting my examination scripts, I never once doubt that I will get that A.”
