CUHK Business School is now accepting applications for its new MSc in Management degree programme. The programme will help high-achieving students excel personally and professionally in today’s dynamic marketplace.
The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School is now accepting applications for its new Master of Science in Management (Master in Management) degree programme. The programme will help high-achieving students excel personally and professionally in today’s dynamic marketplace. CUHK Business School expects the first intake in August 2018 to have 50 students including 50 percent international students.
CUHK MSc in Management (MiM) programme is a one-year full-time pre-experience programme in Hong Kong. Specifically designed for fresh or recent graduates of all disciplines and early-career professionals with less than two years of work experience, CUHK MiM equips students with the critical understanding of business, the adaptive mindset, practical managerial knowledge and leadership skills to succeed in the digital age. Applicants are required to take the GMAT/GRE examinations or the CUHK MiM Admission Test in order to apply to the postgraduate programme.
In sharing the vision in launching the programme, Dr. John Lai, Co-director of MiM Programme at CUHK Business School, said, “Industry and society are changing. The world needs people who can innovate, create, and disrupt, which is why CUHK Business School decided it’s time to develop graduates who can think critically and are flexible and adaptable. In all the MiM’s courses, we’re going to cover some of the most challenging topics demanded by industry leaders in the current marketplace.”
Not only will CUHK MiM students develop knowledge of the major disciplines of management and business foundations, but they will also be prepared for the fast-changing business environment with practical and innovative courses covering cutting-edge topics such as big data, FinTech, digital innovation, entrepreneurship, and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Shige Makino, Professor of Department of Management and Co-director of MiM Programme at CUHK Business School, said, “Traditionally, business schools teach subjects based on academic disciplines including marketing, finance, accounting, etc. Now, we’re looking at phenomena like big data, and so we’ve developed many new courses based on phenomena. The digital economy is a critical next-generation topic. Everything will be digitalised in the future, and we need to prepare our students for it.”
Leveraging CUHK Business School’s extensive global alumni network and strong collaboration with corporations in different industries, CUHK MiM’s academically rigorous curriculum will be bolstered by practice-oriented learning opportunities, including company visits, distinguished speaker series, case studies, business field trips and optional internship opportunities. Outside the classroom, international capstone experience consisting of a two-week study trip and in-company projects will engage and challenge students to develop their problem solving and critical thinking skills by applying theories they have acquired in the courses.
CUHK Business School’s Career Management Centre offers a comprehensive programme of support and skill development to help MiM students, who are at the start of their career, to set and achieve their career goals and to ensure that their job search is as effective as it is focused. Through coaching, counselling, skill-building workshops, seminars and mentorship programme, students will be ready to take on business positions across different industries such as finance, consulting, IT, marketing, FMCG and real estate upon graduation.
