Welcome to the School of Business at
The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong
As Dean of the School of Business, it is a very special honour to welcome you to The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong. At the Business School, we are devoted to providing quality business education by our commitment to follow HSUHK’s “Liberal + Professional” approach to learning. Liberal, as we aim to nurture innovative young people, through offering a broad base curriculum that provides student exposure both within their discipline and across the liberal arts. Professional, in terms of distilling our strong links with industry, commerce and professions in order for students to become responsible citizens and well-equipped to enter the knowledge-based workplace and society.
As a private institution, we aspire to offer an unrivalled experience in business education. We are committed to nurture learning and engagement through high quality, student-centred small group delivery. The quality of our programmes is proven by the many awards won by our students in various competitions, as well as the many compliments provided by different employers. From the academic year 2020/21 the School aims to offer no fewer than ten undergraduate Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) programmes. Subjects on offer include: Corporate Governance & Compliance, Economics, Finance & Banking, Financial Analysis, General Business, Global Business Management, Human Resource Management, Management, Marketing and Professional Accountancy. With over 3,200 studying on such programmes, we are now one of the most popular choices among Hong Kong undergraduate students.
In terms of postgraduate offerings, the School launched its first master’s degree in 2018/19 – an MSc in Entrepreneurial Management. This programme is now thriving and has around 60 registered students (combined full and part-time). Future plans are underway to extend the provision of post graduate education across the School through offering a new Master of Business Management with specialised streams in Accountancy & Corporate Governance, Global Business Management, Global Finance and Marketing. It is also now possible to undertake PhD research on campus, as the School has teamed up with Curtin University in Australia to jointly supervise students.
In line with the vision to become a reputable global business school and build on our strengths in teaching, learning and research, we are progressing well on our AACSB accreditation journey. The success of the School lies in the concerted effort of both our staff and students. Our faculty members mainly consist of doctorate qualified academics and/or industry practitioners who are recognised experts in their field. They all share a high degree of enthusiasm and are committed to supporting students to reach their potential as tomorrow’s business leaders.
I encourage you to come and visit our School and see for yourself the excellent environment that you could join. Please feel free to browse our website and learn more about the School of Business. We welcome your feedback, so if you have any suggestions or comments, we can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
