Our students are equipped with knowledge and skills related to global business, financial analysis and information management, with a focus on communication and problem-solving skills. They are required to complete major courses at three universities in three world regions, including one university in Europe, North America or Australia (e.g., University College London, Copenhagen Business School or Carnegie Mellon University) and another in the Asia/Greater China region (e.g., National University of Singapore, Tsinghua University or Fudan University).
Various scholarships and financial aid packages are provided to qualifying students to help them to complete their one-year exchange studies and internships.

Hong Kong is a global business centre that connects China to the rest of the world. According to a statistical report by the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, the number of mainland companies listed in Hong Kong overtook the number of Hong Kong companies in 2007. An increasing number of multinational companies are using Hong Kong as a springboard and a regional hub to support their investments in China and the Asia-Pacific region. This has created a great demand for global business professionals trained in Hong Kong to analyse and manage such cross-country ventures.
Our graduates may find jobs as global business managers, global technology business investors or business project managers in global investment firms or multinational corporations.
Some of the courses in the major are designed to prepare students for the following professional certification exams: Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA), Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and Project Management Professional (PMP) of Project Management Institute (PMI).
The Department of Information Systems offers the IS Smart Business Scholarships to assist students. In addition, the Department offers the following activities/programmes:
