The programme aims to train future business professionals in the core domains of business and cutting-edge information systems that underpin the contemporary information society. Graduates from the programme can excel in key professional or managerial positions that require both advanced business knowledge and IT-enabled problem solving skills.
Stream A is offered to applicants with a non-IT background and focuses on developing their competence in evaluating cutting-edge IT, coordinating IT-enabled business initiatives, and managing the operation of business information systems, so as to meet the business needs of the organization.
Applicants admitted to this program will be considered with a high priority to continue their studies at a collaborative MSc programme (in Financial Information Services) from a top MIS department from the University of Arizona in the USA (see http://mis.eller.arizona.edu/masters/global/cityu.asp). Twelve credits that students earn at CityU from relevant courses can be transferred to the MScMIS at the University of Arizona.
Outstanding applicants will be offered with a scholarship or assistantship (with an amount above HK$45,000). This year up to six awards will be provided.
Participants can choose to take a Residential Trip (spaces are limited) elective in the form of a field study of normally 7 to 8 days outside Hong Kong.
Continuing Education Fund (CEF): Some courses offered in this programme are eligible for the application of a subsidy from the CEF and each applicant may receive up to HK$10,000 refund within a two-year application period.#
