Why BBA Global Business Systems Management?

BBA Global Business Systems Management (GBSM) aims to nurture smart business managers with knowledge on global business, Internet technology and finance.

GBSM has a very flexible curriculum to support students’ learning. In particular, to enrich students’ experience, build their characters, and expand their social networks, our students are required to complete two semester-long overseas exchange studies in recognized universities in Europe, America or Asia-Pacific regions.  Our graduates are well equipped with communication, problem-solving, data analytics, and other business/technology skill. They are in high demand in new economic companies and the pillar financial and consulting industries of Hong Kong.

"I work as a Financial Analyst. I have applied the information systems knowledge I gained from my studies to various projects. The integrated knowledge and skills in information systems, financial analysis and global business enable me and my team to deliver our projects efficiently."
