The School of Business and Management (SBM) of HKUST was established to provide world class management education in the Asia-Pacific region. It comprises six departments: Accounting, Economics, Finance, Information and Systems Management, Management of Organizations, and Marketing. The School enrolls almost 40% of the University's undergraduate students and approximately 30% of its postgraduate students. All departments offer undergraduate as well as postgraduate programs through to the doctorate.
Strong emphasis is placed on scientific and analytical methods as the fundamental pedagogical approach, supplemented by the use of case studies appropriate to Hong Kong and its neighboring region. The School takes full advantage of the University's state-of-the art technological capabilities in its instruction and research.
“Hong Kong is an amazing place and I felt like I had a really good chance to experience life here and to get to know the people and the city. Despite the lingering effects of the financial crisis, which have greatly impacted the West, the city and its financial markets appear to have recovered nicely. While I was not actively trying to secure a job in Hong Kong, there appeared to be much opportunity here both now and into the future.”
