CUHK QFin/RiskManagement is good enough.

Overseas exposure can be gained after his 1st degree.

Congratulations!!

The ranking of Warwick is slightly lower than CUHK (both in Times and QS rankings) but the costs will be much higher.  Overseas exposure can also be gained through exchange and/or summer programme in undergraduate study.

It depends on  what your son wants in the future. If he will stay in Hong Kong for his career, then CUHK will be better. If he wants to work overseas, then Warwick will be better. Also, you may consider other things, such as costs for the whole program (including living expenses), desire to use more English (Warwick will be better than CU), the career associated with the program, etc. Actually, both universities are very good, and the selection of any one of them is not a  wrong choice. Most often, it is not possible to select the best one as your situation may change from time to time.

For example, I've got a relative whose family returned to Hong Kong last year and whose son got admission from University of Queensland and HKUST last year. Her son finally chose HKUST and is now studying in Hong Kong. However, my relative is now thinking of moving back to Brisbane, and her son is now in a dilemma of whether going back to study in UQ or staying with his grandparents in Hong Kong.

Thank you very much for your comments and advices.  It is not easy for him to make a decision at this age, though I want him to decide every steps about his future.  From our point of view, wherever he goeswill be good if it is at his own choice. Therefore, I want to seek more comments about the two universities and their future prospect.  Does anyone know about the prospect of graduate from Warwick Economic?  Is it difficult to get a job in financial job market?  What about the further study chance?  What master course need to go further in order to get into professional job markets?

Both universities are very good, but I don't see that there is any information that can indicate the prospects of studying the two programme (because the two programmes are not professional programmes as medicine and law). Also, things applied to one person may not be applied to another person.

The financial job market is very competitive, especially due to the downturn of the global financial situation.

If you look for future study for your son, then perhaps Warwick is a better choice as he can apply for the Master's programmes in Oxford, Cambridge and London univ (LSE or LBS) easier. They are world class universities and should have a better future career prospect.

Try - the student room website, more info about Economics and UK university.
CUHK's QFin is a very popular program in the past, as less jobs from Financial market, he may need to consider the career and job aspects.
God grant me the serenity

courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
