Our programme is designed for students who want to serve as in-house specialists or outside consultants in human resource management (HRM).
Based on a firm theoretical foundation in HRM and an appreciation of other business disciplines, the programme provides students with the necessary skills, knowledge and social awareness to manage people in Hong Kong, mainland China and other parts of the world.
HRM is critical to organisational effectiveness because it addresses how to motivate people and build teams in addition to the traditional personnel functions. The importance of HRM is receiving increasing recognition from large and small businesses, as reflected in the competitive salary levels of HRM posts, whether at the entry level or in more senior positions.
With the internationalisation of many business organisations, HRM positions at the regional level have expanded rapidly and should provide excellent career opportunities for our graduates.
To be eligible for admission, you must satisfy the General Entrance Requirements and have earned a good grade in one of the following subjects at a high school or post-secondary institution:
∙ Mathematics, Additional Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics, Mathematics and Statistics, Statistics or Mathematics with Applications.
For senior-year admission, applicants are normally expected to have completed the Associate Degree / Higher Diploma award with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of at least 3.0, or the equivalent. Preference may be given to applicants who have attained Level 4 or above in HKDSE English OR Grade D or above in HKALE Use of English OR IELTS 6.5 or above. For further details on the admission and interview requirements, please enquire with respective programme departments.
Applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
HKDSE students will apply through JUPAS. They may select this major after admission to the College of Business. For details, click here.

Students in this programme have opportunities to work in the human resources department of well-established companies in Hong Kong through the Summer Internship Programme organised by the Department and the College of Business. Students also work face-to-face with business leaders to learn management skills in the Career Development Workshop and attain leadership and team building skills in the Entrepreneurship Project. Students can also develop a global outlook by participating in the International Student Exchange Programme organised by the College and the University. Last, but not least, students will be given the chance to network with their peers and our HRM alumni through the Student Mentoring Scheme and the annual HRM Night.
All applicants are asked to take note of the university policy that there should not be any cross-subsidization between government-funded and non-government-funded places. Thus, non-government-funded students will likely NOT be able to get the same amount of subsidy for student development programmes in the College of Business such as student exchange, internship and overseas study trips. Further details will be provided by respective programme departments after admission to the University in September 2013.
