Undergraduate (Government Funded)
Since its inception in 1987, our BBA (Hons) degree programme embodies the School’s commitment to imbue future leaders with the international perspective, ethical belief, critical mind, and the drive needed to succeed in today’s marketplace.
Carefully integrating a solid foundation in general education with business studies, the programme ensures that students acquire a broad understanding of various subjects while also choosing one of seven areas of specialisation: Accounting, Applied Economics, Finance, Global and China Business, Human Resources Management, Information Systems and E-Business Management or Marketing.
HKBU Business School is also the sole Hong Kong business school requiring students to complete a final-year BBA-Honours project, which it believes will help demonstrate, in an integrated manner, a student’s ability to apply the business knowledge acquired during the course of his or her degree.
HKBU Business School offers a number of programmes designed for holders of associate degrees or higher diplomas intending to further their studies with the objective of completing a Bachelor Degree.
We offer Bachelor degrees in 3 disciplines, namely Accounting, Human Resources Management and Marketing. The duration of these programmes is 4 years.
