Dean’s Profile

Welcome to the Faculty of Business website at the Chu Hai College of Higher Education.

I am honoured to have the opportunity to lead a team of highly motivated and well qualified staff in the Faculty of Business at Chu Hai College of Higher Education, a private tertiary education institution with a long and distinguished history dating from 1947. Over these years it has produced numerous prominent and successful alumni with great contributions in different fields, serving Hong Kong and beyond.

The Faculty of Business staff is devoted to grooming a new generation of business executives and community leaders who will contribute to Hong Kong’s success as a global financial centre, business hub, and a vibrant cosmopolitan city. We consciously design our programmes to meet the needs for both hard and soft skills in the business world, and to strengthen the ethical sense of our future business leaders. We are happy that our programmes have received strong recognition in the business world. Many of our graduates have built a rewarding career and many have taken up important managerial positions.   We are particularly grateful that many banks and businesses have not only hired our graduates but have also offered opportunities for our students to benefit from internships to learn about business practices. We are thankful to our external advisors and mentors from industry and from various professional bodies.

The Faculty comprises three departments, including Accounting and Banking, Business Administration, and Finance. Currently, we offer four undergraduate degree programmes in Accounting and Banking, Business Administration, Finance, and Finance and Information Management. All our business degree programmes are accredited by the Hong Kong Council for Academic Accreditation and Vocational Qualification and are fully recognized by the Hong Kong Government. The Faculty of Business aims to become a leading business school among Asia’s private higher educational institutions. We offer high-quality interactive teaching programmes usually in small classes. We also strive for visible research outputs and scholarly achievements by promoting research to enhance teaching and engaging students in final-year projects. Our Faculty has a record of publishing in refereed journals, including in particular SSCI journals, and scholarly books.

The programmes in the Faculty of Business are designed to nurture ethical business leaders through “holistic development”. In recent years, we have expanded our exchange programmes to send our students on short-term study tours as well as semester-long exchanges overseas (Germany, France, Australia and Japan) and at Chinese universities including Peking University, Tsinghua University, Zhejiang University, and National Taiwan University among many other reputable institutions. Our Leadership and Mentorship Programmes train top students to become future business, professional, civic and academic leaders in Hong Kong, Asia and elsewhere. Furthermore, the Chu Hai Business Faculty Alumni Association has been successfully set up to promote interaction and networking among our alumni and faculty. To those of our alumni who continue to help the Faculty of Business through generous donations and continued assistance to our students and our new graduates we owe our thanks.

Thank you for exploring our website. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to find out more about us.
