The College is 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. Our aim is to be a leading Business Education Hub, in China for the world. We aspire to deliver leadership in applied business research and education which reflects the region's longstanding strengths.

I am delighted to take up the deanship from my predecessor Prof. K.K. Wei at this exciting time and 2013 is going to be a year of challenges and opportunities for all of us at the College of Business. Our 4-year undergraduate curriculum has been introduced featuring a Discovery-enriched Curriculum with an emphasis on innovation, advanced scholarship, and community-related activities. Our international BBA Student Exchange Programme has made a profound impact on student diversity, and we currently have more than 170 partners in six continents, providing extensive and diverse exchange opportunities for our students. We are also planning to move to the newly built iconic Academic Building 3, which will host our MBA/EMBA/DBA teaching/learning activities.

On the research side, the College is currently ranked 69th among the top 100 B-schools worldwide and 7th within the Asia Pacific Region. Our interdisciplinary approach is flexible and dynamic. The recently launched Centre for Transport, Trade and Financial Studies and Centre for Social Media Marketing and Business Intelligence are designed to support groundbreaking research and teaching.

Finally, we are grounded in our corporate connections, and are proud to nurture strong partnerships with thriving Asia businesses as well as international academic partners worldwide.

Please enjoy exploring our website which will lead you to a thrilling encounter with the College - and our many prominent academics and researchers, students and alumni who are ready to share their expertise and experience. But better still, come and experience the College of Business for yourself!
