Established in 2000, School of Business (MSB) is one of the first four faculties in the Macau University of Science and Technology and is also the largest one in the university.

The Bachelor’s degree programs in MSB include Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Bachelor of Applied Economics (BAE).

Our bachelor degree programs are structured with curriculum including 4 components, i.e., 1) general education courses (43 credit units); 2) core foundation courses (45 credit units); 3) major required courses (24-27 credit units); and 4) elective courses (18-21 credit units). Such curriculum design will not only ensure a broad knowledge base but also allow students to have study flexibility, benefitting them to make a successful career planning after graduation. All master degree programs offered by the school are consisted of required courses in the specializations and elective courses, plus the graduation thesis. Doctoral programs require students to prepare high quality dissertations besides completing the required course work in the specified periods.
The MSB is divided into three departments which are Department of Finance and Accounting, Department of Management, and Department of Decision Sciences. Department of Accounting and Finance is responsible for teaching courses related to accounting, finance and economics at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Our undergraduate and postgraduate students have been successful at finding employment after graduation, and every year some students are admitted to the well-known universities for further studies.
