The Business Administration Department

The Department aims to prepare students to become professionals for a wide range of career opportunities in the field of business and management, both in public and private sectors. Our graduates are expected to possess an in-depth knowledge in business and management, with a broad understanding of accounting, finance, law, ethics, and IT in their four years of studies. As a rapidly evolving society requires students to be broadly educated, our flexible curriculum is designed to embed subjects such as Business Studies, Management, Marketing, Finance and Banking, Logistics, China Studies and IT into the course of studies. To be successful in the workplace, our graduates should not only have the capability to perform managerial functions effectively, but also possess the ability in analytical and critical thinking for sound business decision-making and good ethical judgement. Our programme, with its distinctive features, can extensively strengthen our graduates’ employability in facing the increasingly competitive business environment.

Accreditation Information

In Oct 2014, the BA Department was awarded Programme Area Accreditation (PAA) status in the area of General Business Administration by the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ). The attainment of the PAA status signifies a major step towards the retitling of the College to University in the immediate future and confirms that our BA Department is fully qualified to offer and deliver its new learning programmes, including BBA (Hons) in Management, BBA (Hons) in Integrated Marketing Communications and BBA (Hons) in Global Business without going through the normal route of prior programme validation and revalidation by the HKCAAVQ.

The PAA status endows the BA Department with a high degree of autonomy to make decisions on academic offerings and learning given its stringent internal quality assurance mechanisms. Being granted the PAA in area of General Business Administration is a testament to the high quality of the business programmes offered by the BA Department, and to the College’s maturity and credibility as an outstanding private higher education institution. It acknowledges the excellence of our teaching and learning, research output, staff calibre as well as the quality and employability of our graduates. The PAA status is the best evidence that our programmes, both the current and the proposed new ones, are quality assured and capable of nurturing highly sought after business graduates. Students and employers can be assured that our programmes are of excellent quality and are recognized both locally and internationally.
