Faculty of Business
The Faculty of Business at Lingnan University provides high quality business education distinguished by the best liberal arts tradition. Committed to the whole-person developments, we put a strong emphasis on nurturing students’ practical ability and global vision.
Mission and Vision
The mission of the Faculty is to enable students to realize their potential and become excellent, well rounded and socially responsible professionals for service in Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland and beyond. The Faculty also has a vision to be recognized as a leading academic community that is committed to excellence in liberal arts learning and teaching supported by cutting-edge research.
The Faculty offers degree programmes at undergraduate, research postgraduate, and taught postgraduate levels.
With the objective of equipping students with professional knowledge and multiple talents, the BBA (Hons) and BBA-Risk and Insurance Management (Hons) programmes at Lingnan seek a balance in curricular requirements between business core courses, the specialist major, core curriculum, languages, and the free elective component. Many undergraduate business courses contribute to the building of broad-based generic skills through the adoption of team-based in-class or out-of-class assignments, projects, and presentations. Other than classroom learning, the Faculty provides students abundant opportunities on service-learning, internship, and international exchange. The relatively small class size (usually below 35) of our undergraduate courses, which is a hallmark of liberal arts education, encourages the development of close staff-student and student-student relationships and facilitates lively in-class discussions.
The Faculty offers Business MPhil and PhD programmes, as well as five taught postgraduate programmes, namely Master of Accountancy, MSc in eBusiness and Supply Chain Management, MSc in Finance, MSc in Human Resource Management and Organisational Behaviour, and MSc in Marketing and International Business. The curriculum of our taught postgraduate programmes are complemented by a series of professional development activities, internship, overseas study trips, and projects with business partners. These carefully designed one-year specialist master's programmes bring out students maximum professional values and intellectual quality, and prepare them for the challenge of the marketplace in Hong Kong, the Chinese Mainland, and beyond.
The quality of our business education is well recognized by professional associations. Lingnan University received accreditation from the Association to Advanced Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools, and has set up the Lingnan University Chapter of Bega Gamma Sigma (BGS) to recognize business students with outstanding academic achievement.
