Smart, ingenious, energetic, ambitious - all of these are
hallmarks of our students. Our students are professionals with business
experience who desire a career change or who are currently working in a
technology-oriented field and want to enhance their I.T. knowledge and skills as
well as their ability to solve business problems and facilitate solutions. They
come from various professions including accounting, business management,
education, engineering, hospitality, information technology and law.
Many are senior executives with at least a master degree or MBA, some have
multiple master degrees and a few hold doctorates in their own disciplines.
Whether our students work for HSBC, IMB, PCCW, Oracle
Systems or the HKSAR government or in the PRC, they
are passionate, experienced, and driven to succeed as technology specialists,
business executives, and leaders in their organizations.
You will quickly discover that among the Programme's greatest assets are your
fellow students. They form a network of friends and professional contacts of a
lifetime. In most MSc programmes, this connection does not exist. But at our
Programme, the design of our Programme ensures that deep lasting bonds are
formed as students grow and learn together.
Because students come from a diverse and broad group of
industries, participation in the Programme can expose you to a wide variety of
management styles, procedures, and solutions for both business and technical
problems. Through group work and class discussions, students learn the best
practices in different industries for handling the same or similar problems. Not
only can students apply what they learn about other industries to their own
companies, they can apply the same knowledge to better understand their clients?
companies. Beyond class, students become resources for one another, benefiting
through interaction and shared experiences.
