In recent years, highly successful e-Business developments in the Mainland and worldwide have revived strong interest within the local business community. A strong push for local technology start-ups, backed by generous funding, is being pursued by the government, universities and industry sponsors. Riding the latest e-Business bandwagon calls for innovative elements in the BBA curriculum.
Meet Hong Kong’s needs for more graduates in e-Business.
A guiding theme of curriculum development is a culmination in a final year project-based experience for students to develop their first e-Business start-up plans, with a competitive spirit injected in the form of internal and/or external funding. The vast network of industry and business connections built up by the Department of Computing and Decision Sciences for the MSc in e-Business and Supply Chain Management Programme is what the new e-Business Stream is going to benefit most from. This network has enabled, among other things, a series of professional seminars and many local placement opportunities dedicated to our students.
The BBA e-Business Stream is aimed to attract high-calibre technology-savvy individuals to apply for senior-year places in the BBA Programme and to meet Hong Kong’s needs for more graduates in e-Business.
Designed by a group of professional people with academic backgrounds in e-Business, Information Systems, Operations Management, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, etc.

Faculty members in the department are committed to teaching excellence and play an important role in the e-Business Stream.
The first intake of this innovative stream will commence in September 2019.
