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 have been 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.” We have exchange programmes, Leadership and Mentorship Programmes, a strong alumni network, and support from the business sector. All this helps us greatly to realize our goals. Let me take this opportunity to thank all our supporters.
