The MScBM programme is both very diversified and practical. An atmosphere of creativity and inspiration permeates the classroom, the result of having classmates with such different backgrounds. For those coming without a business background, this special ambience made it easier to learn and understand the principles of business and management. For students with a business background, the programme enabled them to integrate management theories with practice. In addition, the numerous workshops complemented our formal training with a set of additional skills to better prepare us not only for a business career, but also to actively engage with society.

The MScBM programme at HKBU was very challenging. The programme covers, in depth, certain business disciplines that were unfamiliar to me such as marketing, human resources management and business operations. Nevertheless, the programme was very interesting, especially the business creativity course. Not only did the programme helped me broaden my horizons and improved my problem-solving skills, but I also had the opportunity to join the business field study in Taiwan. This was truly an inspiring and valuable experience. I am also grateful to have had the chance to participate in numerous group projects and, in the process, learn from so many talented people coming from all over the world. View more“”
