General Information

The Bachelor of Business Administration (Hons) Programme (Information Systems and Business Intelligence Concentration) prepares students to make use of the latest digital technologies to drive innovations both inside organizations and starting up new ventures. Students will learn not only how innovative technologies can enable digital transformation of existing business and create new digital businesses, they will also learn hands-on technologies involved, such as apps development, mobile user experience, development of web-based businesses, performing customer data analytics using machine learning, as well as cybersecurity. This will equip the students to face the challenges of the fast-paced digital business transformation and innovation that is happening right now.

 

Unique Features

  • The ISBI Concentration provides students with the knowledge of finance, technology, and data analytics. With the rise of the blockchain, artificial intelligence, and other disruptive technologies, many old ways of doing business have been changed by new models/technologies such as Algo-trading, Robo-advisor, Robotic Process Automation, End-to-end Digital Payment and Cryptocurrency, Crowd-based Capital Rising, Internet of Things, and more. Students will not only understand the new way of doing business in various domains of the industry, but also other technical mechanisms behind the new business models. Furthermore, the courses will discuss the policy and regulatory implications of disruptive technology and new business model.
  • Professional recognition is available from Information Systems Auditing and Control Association (ISACA), Hong Kong Computing Society (HKCS).
