Our Mission:

We aim that the Department of Information Systems:

  • Be a leading academic department in business technologies and information services
  • Cultivate both business managers and IS professionals with up-to-date training and frontier knowledge
  • Fulfill the needs of business knowledge in Hong Kong, China, the Asia Pacific and beyond

The department is a pioneer in teaching and research innovations and is well-resourced with state-of-the-art laboratories. Started in September 1990 with 15 faculty members, our department now has about 40 research and teaching staff. Recognised globally as one of the best information systems departments in the world, the department offers a comprehensive range of degree programmes from Bachelor to PhD levels in the areas of information systems, electronic commerce, Internet-based marketing, and global technology businesses.

Our colleagues are dedicated to student-centred learning. We want to offer all of our students many opportunities to gain professional competence and academic excellence by means of business internships with major corporations and academic exchanges with top universities in the world. As an integral part of education, the department actively supports our students in organising extra-curricular activities that help develop important sense and skills in character building, social networking and leadership cultivation.

The research of our faculty has been supported by governmental funding agencies in Hong Kong and China as well as corporations. Our staff members have diverse research interests in the areas of business intelligence, consumer information technologies, electronic commerce, service research, and social computing among others. We welcome opportunities to partner with business communities in Hong Kong, China, and other parts of the world to pursue excellent and high-impact research and development.
