As a graduate of Computer Science with years of experience in technology industry, I believe knowing how to integrate technology with business needs and disruptive ideas are essential for such a fast-paced career.  The MSc (ECom&IComp) programme in HKU perfectly matches my continuous career advancement as it offers a suitable combination of business-oriented courses and technology-oriented courses.

What is more, having classmates from various backgrounds further enriches the idea exchanges and always results in fruitful discussions on the applicability of technology in different sectors.  Most importantly, such connections can be maintained via MEICOM, the alumni association of the programme.

Graduate

Being in the creative tech industry, I work with technology on a daily basis.  I joined the HKU MSc(ECom&IComp) programme to catch up with new trends and explore "how others do it" through the prism of the academia, which has given me a brand new perspective on how to run, transform and extend the business by employing the existing and emerging technologies.

What we know about e-business is usually a random mash up of what we have seen on TV, read online or heard on podcasts.

Beating this randomness, the MSc(ECom&IComp) equipped me with a structured understanding of what e-business is about and how to harness and unleash its full potential.  The well-designed interdisciplinary curriculum ranging from technical subjects to purely business oriented ones allowed me to select courses that catered to my personal interests in both areas.

Studying MSc(ECom&IComp) is not only about finding relations between the technology and business.  Building friendly relationships on a personal level has proven equally important.  Sharing experience with classmates from various countries and walks of life as well as interacting with the top local and visiting Professors has given me fresh ideas and attitudes towards life and business.
