Global Business Studies
A global perspective is increasingly important as Chinese businesses take more active roles in foreign markets and as foreign companies tailor their strategies to changing international dynamics. The Global Business Studies offers two distinct streams that nurture students' interest and ability to function effectively in our integrated yet diverse world.
This major provides two streams as follows:
Global Business Management (Global BM)
Global BM gives students a managerial, organizational,human-centered, strategic perspective on global business. It focuses on developing qualitative, analytical and communication skills of students, gives students flexibility to select elective courses, and allows them to be self-directed. Although there are no requirements to study abroad, students are encouraged to select from a wide variety of SME's exchange programmes to learn about business management in foreign environments first-hand.
Global Supply Chain and Logistics Management (Global SCLM)
Global SCLM is jointly run by three partner universities:CUHK-Shenzhen, the University of British Columbia and Copenhagen Business School. Each cohort of up to 45 students (15 from each partner university), will spend three terms studying together in Denmark, Canada and China. This experience will teach students foreign cultures and global business practices, while building an international network of elite peers. Global SCLM focuses on flows of physical, human, informational and financial resources that are critical to today's global business, combining qualitative with rigorous quantitative analysis.
