This programme will consider the following subjects as unspecified elective subject:
a) Extended Part of Mathematics (Module 1 or Module 2);
b) Other Language subjects at Grade E or above.
The aim of the programme is to nurture the next-generation business leaders with the latest technical know-how to succeed in fast-changing technologies for business. Innovation and technology (I&T) development has been among the top priorities of the HKSAR Government. Manpower requirements in the sector are expected to increase by more than the average manpower requirements of the overall Hong Kong economy. In particular, future development of Hong Kong in the direction of a "smart economy" is expected to create related job demand and business opportunities.
Graduates from traditional computer science programmes need solid training in Business to cope with the fast-changing landscape of business and information technologies, whereas graduates from traditional business school programmes need better skills in the use of big data and real-time analytics to support business decisions. The new programme aims to bridge these gaps by integrating Computer Science skills and knowledge of business applications. It provides students with the training in advanced programming and data-analytics skills, as well as broadens their awareness in business applications of these skills.
Student Learning Experiences
We expect our graduates' skills to be attractive to many employers: they can start their careers as business communicators, data scientists, data developers, data engineers, database administrators, financial analysts, market researchers, and other IT-related professionals or enter financial services jobs. The training in this programme would also facilitate their ventures into launching their own businesses.
^ Subject to the University's approval, this new programme will be launched in 2019 entry.
# As the 2019/20 Academic Year is the start of the 2019-2022 triennium for which UGC-funded programmes are still subject to the Government's and the Legislative Council's approval, the number of student intake places shown in this web page is indicative only and subject to change or confirmation at a later date.
For 2019 entry, the Programme will consider Extended Part of Mathematics (Module 1 or 2) as unspecified elective subject in meeting the entrance requirements and as a whole subject in score calculation.
The Programme will not consider any Applied Learning Subjects as an unspecified elective subject.
The Programme will consider grade E or above in Other Language subjects as unspecified elective subject.
