Welcome to the Macau University of Science and Technology’s (MUST) School of Business (MSB). It is the largest unit of the university and currently has 2600 undergraduate students, 1200 graduate/master students and 250 doctoral students. It also has about 90 outstanding faculty members.
Consistent with MSB’s mission to: 1. promote innovation and dissemination of knowledge in business and management; 2. nurture responsible business talents with international perspectives and 3. Contributing to the social and economic development of the local communities and the region, I plan to work with our faculty members, administrative staff and students to move MSB to a higher level. I strongly believe that “togetherness” and “trust and respect” will make MSB as successful as many top business schools around the world. The existing MSB culture, “Young, Dynamic, and Harmonious”, is reflected by the excellent teamwork of the faculty members and the administrative staff. They are not only role models for our students, but also creating role models for Macau, greater China and Asia-Pacific.
Currently, MSB has offered high quality undergraduate, master and Ph.D. degrees in most business disciplines. Totally it has 2 Bachelor’s degree programs: Business Administration (BBA) and Applied Economics (BAE); 10 Master’s degree programs: Business Administration (MBA), Public Administration (MPA), Accounting (MSA), Finance (MSF), Applied Economics (MAE), Business Analytics (MSBA), Charity and Social Organization Management (MCO), Executive MBA (EMBA) and Supply Chain Management (MSCM); and 2 Doctoral degree programs: Management (DPM) and Business Administration (DBA). Many of these programs are accredited by professional organizations such as the ACCA (for BBA and MSc in Accounting), CPA Australia and CIMA (for BBA in Accounting); CILT (for BBA in Supply Chain Management).
Because our curriculum is “market driven” and encourages life-long active learning, and because most of our diverse faculty members have terminal degrees from top-tier universities around the world, with strong research records and professional experience, our graduates are “hot commodities”. Most of them are recruited shortly after they graduated from MUST by large and well-known organizations, such as the Big-4 CPA firms, stated-owned banks and enterprises, multinational corporations, governments agencies, and private companies. Many of them are also on the fast track of their career paths. Some of them created successful start-ups.
Around 40% of our graduates choose to pursue further studies. They are admitted by well-known universities oversea, in China and Hong Kong, including Columbia University, New York University, UCLA, London School of Economics and Political Science, King’s College, Royal College of Art, Paris University, University of Melbourne, National University of Singapore, Peking University, and the University of Hong Kong, etc.
My strategy is to recruit more outstanding academic staff to form a strong teaching and research team that will enable MUST to recruit top quality students. Moreover, business ethics, communication skills and globalization will be the important elements of the curriculum. With these changes, I believe that MSB will continue to produce all rounded leaders and professionals with high quality and with global perspective.
Please feel free to let our faculty, administrative staff and me know if you have questions about MSB. All the best.
