  • Many of our undergraduate students find it challenging to enter workforce without in-depth knowledge of Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Cloud Computing and Big Data (ABCD) technologies. With the proposed “3+1” Undergraduate plus Taught Postgraduate Degree Programme, our students will be equipped with advanced knowledge and skills to develop modern information systems with ABCD technologies.
  • Our graduates can advance their careers fast and work as systems analysts or business analysts directly with a master degree in MSc in Business Information Systems. They can also work with the graduate students in the class and learn the research experience from their peer students. It will also encourage them to do further research in information systems field.
