Graduate Economist Programme

The HKMA operates a two-year Graduate Economist (GE) Programme. It aims to nurture young adults who are interested in economic research and help them develop their talents. They will provide the HKMA with economic and market analyses that are essential to its work in maintaining monetary and financial stability.

During the two-year period, a GE will rotate through two to three different departments conducting economic research or monitoring macro financial conditions.

On completion of the Programme with satisfactory performance, a GE will be appointed as an Economist.
