Our Target

The BBA Management Programme, developed by the Department of Management, aims to equip students with the abilities and tools to successfully manage the people within an organisation as well as manage the organisation itself, in both local and international environments. Students of this programme will acquire the knowledge to meet management challenges including decision making, leading and motivating people, leading organisational change and strategising and managing internationally.

The core courses of the Management major provide an overview of the core knowledge and skills required to efficiently and effectively manage and lead people and organisations. Building on the core courses platform, it offers a choice of two distinctive streams: Human Resources Management (HRM) and Strategy and International Management (SIM).

HRM stream

The HRM stream is designed for students who wish to pursue a career as in-house specialists or outside consultants in the human resource management area.

Based on a firm theoretical foundation in HRM and an appreciation of other business disciplines, this stream provides students with the necessary skills, knowledge and social awareness to manage people in Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland and other parts of the world.

Specifically, the goals of the HRM stream are to:

  1. provide students with knowledge of the central functions of business management in general and human resource management in particular;
  2. offer students opportunities to acquire generic skills such as interpersonal interaction, effective communication, working individually and in teams, creativity, emotional intelligence, business etiquette, etc.; and
  3. enable students to apply intellectual strategic thinking skills in human resource management and demonstrate sensitivity to intercultural and global issues.

SIM stream

The SIM stream is developed for students who aspire to embrace a management career specialising in strategy and international management areas.

The business environment in Asia and the international marketplace have become increasingly dynamic. To thrive in such a context, students of today, or managers of the future, need to be equipped with a sound understanding of the international business environment and the ability to recognise and analyse strategic issues within the environment.

The specific objectives of the SIM stream are to:

  1. equip students with the knowledge and skills to develop strategies and effectively manage in the international business environment;
  2. help students develop the capabilities needed to navigate and succeed in the challenging international marketplace, especially in the increasingly important Asia Pacific region; and
  3. allow students to understand how firms operate in the international environment and gain an in-depth understanding of the development and implementation of strategy and managerial activities in relation to cross-border business activities.
