Introduction

Through lectures, seminars, indigenous business cases, company projects, talks by guest speakers, computer simulations and internship programmes, we aim to provide a comprehensive and integrated learning experience to our students.

We stress interactions between teachers and students, and among students, inside and outside the classroom, collaborating to open intellectual avenues that stimulate original thought, inquiry and discovery. Oral, written and electronic communication techniques are stressed. Students are expected to be active participants, not passive receivers, to prepare themselves to achieve their goal in a diverse and heterogeneous environment.
