MESSAGE FROM DEAN

Professor Jilendra V Singh
Dean, HKUST Business School
Michael Jebsen Professor of Business

Welcome to the HKUST Business School. Since our Establisment in 1991 we have been committed to Advancing Global Business Knowledge and Developing Business Leaders in Asia for the world.

In its short history of 24 years, the HKUST Business School has become a respected educational and research institution as reflected in a number of prestigious global rankings and impact on the way companies do business in the region. This is the result of our international and dedicated faculty from leading universities worldwide. They demonstrate devotion and passion for developing a wealth of new knowledge and a host of both degree and executive programs designed for nurturing the next generation of business leaders.

Our pioneering programs place entrepreneurial spirit and creativity first to help students fully realize opportunities on a global scale. They attract students of the highest caliber from around the world, who are looking for an enriching learning experience to not only succeed in their chosen career, but also be inspired to make a positive impact on the economic and social advancement of the region.

Ideally located as it is in the heart of Asia, we believe that the HKUST Business School over the next decade will have an even bigger role to play in training professionals and executives for the fast-paced development of emerging markets in the region, notably Mainland China and India. While harnessing our understanding and established relations in these markets, we will continue to extend our footprint to meet the growing demand for business education in Asia, with a global perspective and in collaboration with our many partners. What’s more, we will combine the proven practices from the West and the inherited traditions in the East to stay at the forefront of educational developments in both regional and global contexts.

Going forward, we strive to build a broader, more cohesive and productive network to enhance our engagement with a wider community of alumni, corporate partners and other key stakeholders. They, together with our faculty and students, will form an integral part of our ongoing legacy and paint the way forward to reinforce our position as a world class business school in Asia.
