Business made Smart with Information Systems (IS)

Why Study BBA Global Business Systems Management? BBA Global Business Systems Management (GBSM) aims to nurture students to become smart business managers.

GBSM IS Smart Global

The best way to learn about the world is to experience it. Two semester-long exchanges to recognised universities in the US, Europe and/or Asia encourage our students to develop a global mindset. Enjoy a flexible curriculum and choose courses during your exchange that match your own interests and needs.

GBSM IS Smart Tech

Our students develop a technology mindset as they learn how modern information systems such as AI, big data and cloud services are transforming the business world. They can participate in a week-long Smart Business Study Tour to Stanford University and visit AAAF (Apple, Amazon, Alphabet and Facebook) companies in Silicon Valley, or join a one-month Smart Business Project Tour for visits and work experience in FinTech and/or BAT (Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent) companies closer to home. 

GBSM IS Smart Business

Our students also develop a business mindset as they learn about new IS business strategies and Internet business models. Students gain the knowledge and skills to analyse high-growth technology companies and make wise investment decisions. They also develop good communication and project management skills, which prepare them for management trainee jobs in multinational companies.

GBSM IS Smart Choice

Our students have opportunities to conduct undergraduate research or consulting projects with faculty members in the largest IS department in Hong Kong and one of the best IS department in research productivity in the world [1]. The Department provides Smart Business scholarships to support our undergraduate students in regional and international business competitions. Our students make business smart with information systems.

GBSM IS Smart Future

Our graduates begin their careers as management trainees and business analysts in global banks, consulting and technology firms, such as HSBC, BOC, PWC, Apple, Alibaba, Facebook, Google and IBM.

In 2018, 94% of our graduates were hired immediately after graduation and 6% of our graduates went overseas for further studies. The highest and average monthly salaries of our graduates from BBA Global Business Systems Management were approximately HK$60K and HK$24K, respectively.
