Overview
Description

The top-ranking School of Business and Management endeavors to give students a world-class business education with global exposure. We offer diverse program choices (nine BBA and two BSc programs), ample opportunities for learning outside the classroom, such as corporate projects and internship programs, and strong career and alumni networks. Our students’ success is our business. 

Our curriculum is designed to provide the greatest possible flexibility to accommodate our students' academic strengths and interests. In the first three terms, regardless of their admission route, all business and management students are exposed to a wide variety of business and other foundational subjects to build a broad base of knowledge in the field. From the second term of Year 2, students take additional courses required by individual majors to gain solid knowledge in their specialization. 

In addition, students can take one or more of the 24 minors offered by the School of Engineering, School of Humanities and Social Science, or School of Science, e.g. Design, Entrepreneurship, China Studies, Mathematics, or Social Science. Of the 2019 graduating class, 77.6% completed their degrees with additional majors or minors.

Admissions and Programs
Description

The School of Business and Management offers both program-based and school-based admission routes for applicants. 

While students with specific interest in the major programs may apply directly to the program-based options, students who would like to spend more time exploring their interests may enter the School through 'Business and Management' (B&M), the school-based admission route.

As one of the best regarded and most comprehensive business and management programs in Hong Kong, B&M is designed to provide students with a broad foundation of knowledge and great flexibility in learning.

In the first three terms, students are exposed to a wide variety of business and other foundational subjects, enabling them to fully explore their interests before committing to one or more specialized areas of study during major selection exercises held twice a year. About half of the planned major seats are reserved for B&M program students, who enroll via the major selection exercises. Nearly 90% of business and management students are admitted to their first- or second-choice majors through these exercises.
