With China's emergence in the world economy comes the need to educate a new generation of business leaders possessing solid knowledge of Asian markets, China in particular, with a global mindset. Situated at the world's doorway to China with well-developed foundation in business education and research, the Faculty of Business Administration at The Chinese University of Hong Kong sees our uniqueness in nurturing those leaders for tomorrow.
We begin by nurturing a global vision in our students, helping them to appreciate the intersection of business and culture. Our well-known undergraduate program of Global Business Studies allows students to study under a real global environment. We offer courses focusing on strategy of global business management and cultural dynamics, which are supplemented by overseas exchange and study abroad programs to broaden our student's global perspectives.
Given that basis, our focus on business in China is world class, offering a systematic and professional approach to postgraduate education and research. Our MBA Programs in Hong Kong offer a dedicated concentration on China Business. Our MBA in Finance and the Executive Master of Professional Accountancy programs offered in the mainland lead the Greater China Region in their fields. We also established close collaboration with renowned mainland universities on joint research projects and training of young researchers.
While our faculty's research interests are extensive, a special focus rests on the latest development of emerging markets, which we believe will be a major driver of the global economy. To highlight a few, our Center for Institutions and Governance conducted studies in unique governance issues in Asia and China. Other faculty members take lead of two University-level research centers – the Institute of Economics and Finance and the Li & Fung Institute of Supply Chain Management and Logistics. Both centers placed significant emphasis on challenges and viable solutions for emerging markets in their respective areas.
Over the years, we have nurtured more than 20,000 business professionals who have formed a major pillar of the local as well as global business community. Looking onto the future, we will continue to provide world-class business education and research with an Asian emphasis, which will be instrumental to achieve global impact in view of the emerging role of the Region in the global arena
