We are a globally-oriented business school at the centre of a thriving region in Hong Kong, China. We offer world class teaching and research facilities at our main Kowloon campus, conveniently placed in the heart of Hong Kong. We are a leading Business Education Hub, working in China for the world. We aspire to deliver leadership in applied business research and education which reflects the region's longstanding strengths in international finance, management and manufacturing.

2015 promises to be a year of challenges and opportunities for all of us at the College of Business. We are now a world top-50 research school, currently ranked #37 in the University of Texas at Dallas Top 100 Worldwide Business School Rankings.

Our research effort flows into innovative, cross disciplinary channels. The College has a history of working on research projects which benefit the wider community and in 2014 we were delighted to receive the news that we are to lead a Theme-Based Research Scheme project on health care: Delivering 21st Century Healthcare in Hong Kong – Building a Quality-and-Efficiency Driven System, supported by a grant of HKD 20.45 million and led by Project Coordinator, Prof of Management Sciences, Frank Chen.

We have also expanded our research infrastructure with the establishment of the China Business and Economic Development Research Centre. The centre’s Director, Prof William Yang Hai-bin, leads research in regional economic development, financial policy studies, and business model innovations.

The College’s range of programmes continues to expand, and in September 2014 we held the orientation for our first ever cohort of Master of Business Administration (Executive) Programme (Chinese) (EMBA Chinese), new students attending from Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, and Shenzhen.

We have also been busy improving our College support infrastructure. The College has established a Career Service for undergraduates which aims to offer a customized dialogue with each student. The service helps students to explore careers options, build competitiveness, set up career talks, and partners with employers to recruit talents.

We have recently launched our very own City Business Magazine, bringing you all the latest news, research and comment from our faculty and staff. We welcome you to our new magazine which you can find at

Also recently we received the excellent news that AACSB has recommended extension of accreditation of CB’s business degree programmes for a further five years, complementing our accreditation with EQUIS.

I do hope you enjoy exploring our website – where you will find our many prominent academics and researchers, students and alumni who are ready to share their expertise and experience. Our College Office has now relocated to 12/F of Academic 3. The new setting offers spectacular views out over Kowloon and Lion Rock, creating an environment which is a joy to use for guests and staff alike. We look forward to welcoming you here!
