Global connections

Global connections

HKBU School of Business firmly believes that this is an era in which students need to be exposed to the realities of the professional domain outside geographical borders to confront contemporary challenges. The school’s international exchange programme does just that, by giving students the chance to enhance their academic learning by living in and experiencing different cultures to broaden their outlook.

HKBU School of Business has finalised exchange agreements with more than 200 universities in over 36 countries whereby HKBU students can study abroad for one part of their degree. In developing a quality international network, the school places great emphasis not only on institution rankings but also cultural diversity and global relevance.

Apart from regular semester exchange, programmes on offer as part of this international collaboration include joint double degree programmes with leading global universities, such as a joint MSc in Global Marketing Management with the University of Sheffield in the UK and a joint MSc in Entrepreneurship and Global Marketing with the Grenoble Ecole de Management in France. There is also a dual degree on offer in MBA / MScBM in collaboration with National Taipei University of Business in Taiwan, which automatically entitles the student to a second master’s degree.



The school’s credentials are further reaffirmed by the fantastic, state-of-the-art facilities on offer at the school, some of which are reserved exclusively for the students of the school.

In the Bloomberg Laboratory, students have a chance to see first-hand one of the most powerful systems used by financial professionals. Using the Bloomberg terminal real-time financial market data can be analysed and monitored, in addition to being able to provide news, price quotes, and secure messaging.

The Datastream Laboratory is home to Datastream, which is a data driven service integrating economic research and strategy with asset analysis in one integrated application, something that the asset management industry thrives on. 

The Behavioral Research Laboratory (The Lab) is a space that research students and final year undergraduates are allowed to use for their projects. The Simulated Trading Laboratory is where the Fund Management Committee invests real money donated by alumni. In addition the computer laboratories are equipped with over a hundred PCs and SPSS software.

The Learning Corner is the all-encompassing name given to several common learning spaces, including discussion rooms, as well as gardens that provide a conducive environment for brainstorming and collaboration during team projects.

General facilities, which all students can use, include a well-stocked library housing English and Chinese titles, the Wai Hang Sports Centre, a three-star hotel and several coffee shops and restaurants dotting the campus.
