HKUST’s Innovative Business Education
Preparing students for a Cross-Disciplinary and Sustainable Future
The School of Business and Management of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST Business School)strives to incubate interdisciplinary business leaders for a sustainable future.
New program filling the gap of sustainable and green finance skills
HKUST Business School will open admissions for a brand-new program 'BSc in Sustainable and Green Finance' (BSc SGFN) in September 2022.
The program is designed to fill the global talent gap for top-level green and sustainable finance experts. Aiming to nurture leaders and managers in Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG), impact investment, financing of sustainable projects and development of green products, students have to study a wide range of subjects across multiple disciplines – including climate and ESG, finance and risk management, statistics and programming, big data, operations management, public policy, among others.
Dual degree pathway for cross-disciplinary talent training
The global pandemic opens up a new avenue for innovative curriculum in the ever-changing business environment. The HKUST Business School will open admissions for its interdisciplinary dual degree 4+1 pathway – 'BSc in Risk Management and Business Intelligence' (BSc RMBI) and 'MSc in Financial Technology' (MSc FinTech) this coming September.
Major options for undergraduates
To allow students to finish their studies within a four-year timeframe with a well-defined study pathway, the HKUST Business School will introduce new extended major options for undergraduates, covering emerging areas in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Digital Media and Creative Art (DMCA) in September 2021 and September 2022, respectively.
Anti-Covid19 measures on campus
The HKUST is resuming on-campus teaching and research collaboration in September 2021, and all students, faculty and staff members are required to get vaccinated or undergo testing every two weeks. To facilitate this policy, the university has arranged and will continue to arrange on-campus vaccination for both new and existing university members. Meanwhile, other preventive measures such as mask-wearing, social distancing, and regular spraying of antimicrobial coating on campus are still in place.
