Our Vision and Mission

Since 1956, HKBU has provided innovative business education to students from across the globe. At HKBU’s School of Business, we seek to inspire good business practice, create values for stakeholders, and enhance social and economic growth and development through our research on corporate sustainability issues encompassing areas of business ethics, corporate social responsibility and corporate governance.

  • excel as a leading institution in selected strategic research areas to advance and disseminate business knowledge as well as enhance teaching quality;
  • be one of the region’s most visible and influential business schools in terms of corporate advisory and public policy impact;
