Prospective Career

Teaching and Learning Method

The teaching, learning, and assessment methods used in the program, such as case studies, in-class exercises, simulations, group project assignments, and presentations are designed to enhance the students’ capabilities in problem identification and analysis, in developing strategic recommendations and exchanges of ideas. Students learn theories, concepts, and best practices from faculty members with strong academic backgrounds and 15 years of business experience on average. On occasions, the program also invites visiting professionals as guest lecturers to give broad and practical overviews and challenges of various industries. These experiences support the students’ individual career objectives and in addition may provide enhanced social and professional networks. Furthermore, the regularly-held CEO, CFO, and CMO guest seminar events also enrich students with new perspectives on how to relate the theoretical foundations they learned with current business practices and the corporate challenges they face.

Innovation will be developed through course assessments that put emphasis on content comprehension and innovation. Innovation thinking, commonly referred to as ‘Design Thinking’, will be developed through courses in the program. Students are required to translate selected innovative ideas into a visible design to comprehend the end-to-end innovation process. This innovation thinking approach is implemented in the teaching, learning, and assessment process of several courses throughout the program.

At the end of the program, students will be required to complete a final thesis that will assess students’ comprehensive understanding of the business management concepts learned in the program. With English as the formal language of instruction, the program is expected to ensure that our graduates are ready to enter the international workplace.
